Zara Tindall, 39, and her husband Mike have welcomed their third child. The former rugby player confirmed the happy news on his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast. He confirmed the baby boy came into the world on Sunday, March 21.
Announcing the news, Mr Tindall described his weekend as “crazy”.
He said: “Saturday, loved all the rugby…I was actually genuinely angry after the England game.”
The father-of-three added: “And then Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house.”
He said his son was born on the bathroom floor as the couple were unable to make it to hospital on time.
Mike said: “Arrived very quickly. Didn’t make it to the hospital. On the bathroom floor.”
The rugby player discussed how his son was born around 6pm and he had to rush to get a mat for his wife.
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.”
Where does Zara Tindall’s baby fall in the line of succession?
Zara Tindall’s son is the second royal to see the 2011 change in the laws of succession in action.
Under old succession laws pre-2011, the heir to the throne was always the first-born son of the monarch.
This means any daughter would rank below her older and younger brothers in the line of succession.
In practice, this led to Princess Anne ranking below all her brothers in the line of succession.
