Another royal baby is on the way.
Zara Tindall, an accomplished equestrian who is also Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter and the daughter of Princess Anne, is expecting her third child with her husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, reported People. Her husband confirmed the baby news on The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast.
“It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week—third Tindall on its way,” he shared during his interview. The Tindalls are already parents to two girls, Mia Grace, 6, and Lena Elizabeth, 2. Tindall quipped, however, that he wouldn’t mind a baby boy joining their growing bunch.
“We’re not sure what to do. 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!” said the rugby player.
The athlete also confirmed that at the time of the episode recording, he and his wife had yet to tell their little girls about their new sibling, but that plans to do so were in the works.
“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,” commented Tindall. “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.”
A Buckingham Palace source tells BAZAAR.com that Queen Elizabeth is “aware and delighted” about the news.
