James Middleton took to Instagram on Tuesday to mark a sweet celebration, just one day after his sister Pippa welcomed her second baby with husband James Matthews.  

The Ella & Co founder, 33, revealed that it was his puppy Nala's first birthday and shared a fun boomerang with his beloved dogs.

James introduced pup Nala last May

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger brother first introduced the cute new addition last May, sharing a series of photos of the then ten-week-old pup. 

He wrote on Instagram at the time: "Introducing Nala Middleton. She is the daughter of Zulu & granddaughter of Ella. I cannot wait to share many adventures with her and the rest of the pack."

James has become an uncle again to Pippa's second child

It's been a week of celebrations for the Middletons after Pippa, 37, gave birth to a daughter on Monday 15 March.

The author and columnist has named her baby Grace Elizabeth Jane. 

"Mother and baby are doing well," a family source told HELLO! on Monday. "She's perfect, everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival."

James is already uncle to Pippa and James's eldest son Arthur, two, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Back in 2015, James celebrated the birth of his niece Charlotte with a bottle of champagne, writing on Instagram at the time: "A little pink champagne to celebrate!"

James and his fiancée Alizee

The Ella & Co founder had been due to marry fiancée Alizee Thevenet last year, but the couple had to postpone their nuptials twice amid the coronavirus pandemic.

James popped the question to the French financial analyst in October 2019 last year after dating for around 12 months.

The pair stayed with James's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, at their stunning Bucklebury home during the first lockdown in March 2020.

James has been delighting fans with pictures and videos of his beloved dogs in recent months, including his own rendition of the Sea Shanty TikTok craze.
