Princess Eugenie and Meghan and Harry aren’t the only royals with baby news in 2021. Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall gave birth to a baby boy over the weekend.
A spokesperson for Tindall, 39, said Lucas Philip Tindall was born Sunday evening and weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces. He is the third child of Tindall and her husband, Mike Tindall, and the Queen’s 10th great-grandchild. The baby’s middle name honors Prince Philip and Mike Tindall’s father, the BBC reported.
The infant was born on the bathroom floor of the couple’s home in Gloucestershire, since the couple was unable to get to a hospital in time, CNN reported.
The birth was announced by Mike Tindall on Wednesday during an episode of his podcast, “The Good, The Bad and The Rugby.”
