The royal family is growing! Mike Tindall and his wife Zara Tindall are expecting a child and will soon become parents for the third time! Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter and her husband, who live in a former home of Princess Anne, are already parents to 6-year-old Mia Grace and 2-year-old Lena Elizabeth. The happy news was announced by the 41-year-old father on Wednesday, December 9, in his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, which he co-hosts.
On his show, Mike Tindall spoke to his co-hosts Alex Payne and James Haskell and suddenly announced his wife’s pregnancy: “I had a really good week, thanks to a little scanner last week: the third Tindall is on his way! “reports the Daily Mail. The two previous pregnancies of the royal couple had been announced by Buckingham Palace. Obviously this time, Mike and Zara Tindall preferred to announce the news themselves in a much more casual way.
Queen Elizabeth II “delighted”
Then, the former rugby player confided in this happy event to come: “I would like a boy this time, I have two daughters, I would like a boy. After I would like him whether it’s a boy or a girl – but please make it a boy, “he joked. Mike Tindall then made a joke that he and his wife will name their child with a first name relating to the health crisis, since the baby was conceived during the pandemic. “We do not yet know what to do, Covi or Covina, I do not yet know which name to choose”, he laughed. Also according to the tabloid, a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said: “Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh are aware and delighted.”
