Zara and Mike Tindall welcome baby boy with home birth

After the birth of August Brooksbank last month, the wider Royal Family have welcomed another to the clan, in the form of Zara and Mike’s third child, a boy.

He was born on Sunday 21st March at the couple’s Gloucestershire home, Mike confirmed in an episode of The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast.

“Saturday, loved all the rugby…I was actually genuinely angry after the England game,” Mike commented. “And then Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house”.

Mike, Zara and Mia Tindall in December 2015; the family is now 5. I-Images.

Mike said his wife Zara was a ‘warrior’,  with the baby arriving ‘very quickly…on the bathroom floor’.

“Didn’t make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor,” he said. “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.”

The baby weighed 8lbs 4oz.

The couple have chosen the name Lucas Philip Tindall, with a nod to The Duke of Edinburgh.

He joins sisters Mia Grace and Lena Elizabeth, and is 22nd in line to the throne.

The couple have suffered two miscarriages previously, one after a public announcement was made about their happy news in 2016.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman says: “The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news and look forward to meeting their 10th great grandchild when circumstances allow.”
