Mike announced the news on a podcast that he co-hosts, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, telling his fellow presenters: "It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week—third Tindall on its way."
He even went on to add: "I’d like a boy this time, I’ve got two girls, I would like a boy. I’ll love it whether a boy or a girl—but please be a boy."
The couple’s previous pregnancies have been announced by Buckingham Palace, so this is definitely a break from tradition, but a Buckingham Palace spokesperson has since stated: "Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh are aware and delighted."
The couple already share two daughters, Mia and Lena Elizabeth. The future arrival, like their sisters, won’t have a royal title.
Huge congratulations to Zara and Mike on their future arrival.
