Zara and former England rugby star Mike Tindall have welcomed a baby boy named Lucas Philip Tindall. Her Majesty’s granddaughter, gave birth to their third child, weighing 8lbs 4oz, at 6pm on Sunday on the bathroom floor of their family home on Princess Anne’s Gloucestershire estate.
Describing the birth on his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, Mr Tindall, 42, said: “Arrived very quickly. Didn’t make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor.”
“So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat on the floor, towels down, brace, brace, brace,” he added.
Mike joked on air: “I literally was like ‘Yep, snip, snip, snip’ I’ve got a boy. I’m out. I’m out of here.”
He added: “The best thing about being at home, the best thing was, as soon he’s wrapped up, he’s skin on skin, straight downstairs. TV room. Golf on. This is what we’re doing.”
Like their relatives, the Cambridges, the Tindalls are now a family of five and it looks like both families have no more plans to extend their broods.
Prince William and Kate are parents to Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two. But it seems they won’t be adding to their brood.
In January 2020, during a visit to Bradford, Yorkshire, Kate chatted with royal fan Josh Macpalce and revealed that William doesn’t want any more kids.
Josh told the Duchess how he had sent cards congratulating her on the births of her children and she replied: “I don’t think William wants any more.”
But, in February 2020, Kate had hinted at potentially wanting another baby after meeting a cute five-month-old while touring Northern Ireland with William. She said that that seeing the infant made her feel happily “broody”, but “I think William would be a bit worried,” responded Kate.
