Mr. Tindall was present at the birth.

The baby weighs 9lbs 3oz and was born on Monday in Stroud Maternity Unit.

The couple's choice of baby name has not yet been revealed but the palace confirms it will be "in due course".

Buckingham Palace said Tuesday the baby is the second child of Zara and Mike Tindall, a former English rugby player.

Mike Tindall, Zara Tindell and their daughter Mia Tindall pose for a photograph during day three of The Big Feastival at Alex James' Farm on August 28, 2016 in Kingham, Oxfordshire.


The couple already have a four-year-old daughter, Mia.

Mia Grace Tindall was born on 17 January 2014. "However down we feel she will come running up in our faces". You'll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke'.

The baby is also a second cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Ex-England rugby captain Mr Tindall, was a member of the 2003 Rugby World Cup winning team and Mrs Tindall is an equestrian champion, winning a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics. They announced their engagement in December 2010 and married in July 2011.

He very sweetly said of his wife's pregnancy problem with the Royal Wedding: "Obviously it's not easy being 8 and half months pregnant so there have been a few re-fittings. A lot of my socializing takes place at competitions during the eventing season, so I like the contrast of a quiet Saturday night at a local pub with friends".
