Zara Tindall has welcomed another child with her husband Mike Tindall. But how many children do they have already and how old is Zara?

Zara and Mike confirmed the birth of their son on March 24 2021, revealing they have called their new baby boy Lucas Philip Tindall. Their son's middle name is a sweet nod to Zara's granfather, Prince Philip.

It was proud dad Mike Tindall who first shared his and Zara's pregnancy 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 at the time.

Zara is the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal and is the Queen's oldest granddaughter. This makes the newest baby Tindall another great-grandchild for the monarch.

How old is Zara Tindall?

Zara has one older brother, Peter Phillips, who is Princess Anne's only son and the Queen's eldest grandchild.

Who are Zara Tindall's children?

Zara Tindall has two daughters and a new-born baby son.

Her eldest child is seven-year-old Mia Grace Tindall. She was born on 17th January 2014 in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and is 19th in line to the throne.

Zara's youngest daughter is Lena Elizabeth Tindall, who is two-years-old. She was born on 18 June 2018 at the Stroud Maternity Hospital. She is 20th in line to the throne.

The couple welcomed their first son in March 2021. Zara gave birth to a baby boy on Sunday 21 March 2021. His name is Lucas Philip Tindall.

According to Mike, Lucas arrived so quickly that the couple were not able to travel to a hospital. Therefore Lucas was born at the couple's home on the royal Gatcombe estate in Gloucestershire.

"Arrived very quickly. Didn't make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor," Mike said on his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast. "So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat on the floor, towels down, brace, brace, brace." Lucas arrived at 6pm that evening.

Tragically, Zara suffered two miscarriages in-between the births of her daughters. Reflecting on her miscarriages in 2018, Zara said: "It’s been a horrible road but, you know, actually now we’ve come out the end of it, hopefully it makes you a stronger family."

Who is Zara's husband Mike Tindall?

Zara's husband Mike Tindall is a former English rugby union player. He was born on 18th October 1978, making him 42 years old.

Mike played rugby for Bath and Gloucester and was also a member of the English squad. He won 75 caps for England between 2000 and 2011 and was also part of the team which won the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Mike first met Zara during the England team's Rugby World Cup campaign in Australia in 2003.
