Zara Tindall has revealed she is expecting another child with her husband Mike Tindall. But how many children do they have already and how old is Zara?
Zara’s husband Mike Tindall confirmed his and Zara’s baby news on his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast on Wednesday 9th December 2020.
“It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week – third Tindall on its way,” he said.
Zara is the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal and is therefore the Queen’s granddaughter. This means their new arrival will be another great-grandchild for the monarch.
