Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall have confirmed they are set to become parents for a second time with another baby on the way.
The baby will be a little brother or sister for the couple’s daughter Mia, who is almost three and will be the sixth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth – or Gan Gan as the children call her.
The baby is believed to be due around May.
The royal family are said to be over the moon as the news of a new addition as are royal well-wishers worldwide.
Mike took to Twitter to thank everyone for the messages.
While news of another royal baby is exciting, the arrival of the bub will be much more low key than that of his/her cousins, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
In stark contrast to the fanfare that surrounded the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the births of both their children, when Zara and Mike welcomed Mia they announced her name via Twitter and sold the photos to a celebrity magazine.
