The royal family just got bigger! Zara Tindall, Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter, welcomed her second child – a girl — with her husband, Mike Tindall, on Monday, June 18. The newborn joins 4-year-old sister Mia.
Buckingham Palace revealed in a statement on Tuesday, June 19, that the newest Tindall weighed in at 9 pounds, 3 ounces, and was delivered at Stroud Maternity Unit. The baby is the fourth grandchild for Zara’s mom, Princess Anne, and the seventh great-grandchild for the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. The Palace noted that the little one’s name will be confirmed “in due course.”
Olympic British equestrian Zara, 37, and the former rugby player, 39, announced in January that they were expecting their second child. The couple previously suffered a tragic miscarriage in 2016.
Michael opened up about the loss in May 2017. “The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now 3,” he shared in an interview with the Sunday Times. “However down we feel she will coming running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we see her grow up. I take her swimming and I can take her to Ninja Tots. You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.”
A very pregnant Zara and Michael attended Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s May 19 wedding at Windsor Castle. Michael hinted at some dress drama ahead of the nuptials. “Obviously it’s not easy being 8 and a half months pregnant, so there have been a few re-fittings,” he told radio show Magic Breakfast days before the big event. “She looks beautiful anyway, as she always does.”
Zara and Michael tied the knot in July 2011.
