The British royal family has once again grown. Zara Tindall, the daughter of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, gave birth to a baby boy named Lucas Philip Tindall this Sunday, March 21. The newborn takes the 22nd place in the order of succession to the throne. There is therefore little chance that he will one day accede to the Crown.
A birth disaster in … the bathroom
It was Zara Tindall’s husband, Mike Tindall, who announced the good news on Wednesday, March 24, when he appeared in the podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, which he co-hosts. “Sunday was a great day because a little boy came to my house!” He said. A delivery that took place in disaster since the baby arrived very quickly. The granddaughter of Elizabeth II had indeed given birth on the floor of her bathroom, in the family property in Gloucestershire. “We couldn’t have made it to the hospital in time, so we had to run to the gym, grab a mat, go to the bathroom, put on towels and hang on,” family. Fortunately, the midwife who was to join us at the hospital was not far away, she arrived on time. “
Lucas Philip is therefore the couple’s first boy who is already the parent of two daughters, six-year-old Mia Grace and two-year-old Lena Elizabeth. Good news for Zara Tindall who has suffered several miscarriages in the past.
