Royal Baby on the Way! Zara Tindall Expecting Third Child
Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, 39, is going to be a mom again!
On Wednesday, Zara’s husband Mike Tindall broke the pregnancy news. He shared on his podcast, “It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week — third Tindall on its way.”
“We’re not sure what to do,” Mike added. “I’d like a boy this time. I’ve got two girls. I would like a boy, but I will love it whatever, whether it’s a boy or a girl but please be a boy!”
Zara and Mike are already the parents of daughters Mia Grace, 6, and Lena Elizabeth, 2.
The pair waited before they told their girls about their new roles as big sisters. He explained, “We haven’t told Mia yet just because we knew she would tell everyone at school. We will tell her now that we’ve gone through the scan. Yes, of course, we will tell her."
He dished, “I think she’ll be happy about it. She has been requesting another sister or brother, so we’ve hopefully fulfilled that role for her. She just wants something different now. Lena is growing up — she’s two-and-a-half now. She wants someone younger to play with and dress up."
As for possible baby names, Mike referenced the COVID-pandemic, joking, “Covey or Covina.”
Mike admitted he didn’t run it by Zara before announcing the baby news on air. He admitted, “There’s a good chance she might just read it. I’m not going to tell her that I’ve told you but, shh, keep it (quiet). No one will know. What, 150,000 listeners a week? No one will tell her!"
Despite Zara’s past miscarriages, Mike noted that she is “very good,” adding, “She’s really looking forward to it.”
Zara and Mike tied the knot in 2011.
