Zara Tindall baby name: They’ve announced! What have they called their baby girl?
NINE days after welcoming their second daughter, Zara and Mike Tindall have announced their new bundle of joy’s name. So what have they called her?
Zara, the Queen’s granddaughter, and her rugby star hubby Mike Tindall welcomed the little one on Monday, June 18.
Their gorgeous little girl was born weighing in at 9lb 3oz – the heaviest royal baby in more than 100 years!
The 37-year-old MBE and equestrian and her husband are already parents to four-year-old Mia Grace.
The new baby is 19th in line to the throne, and the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s seventh great-grandchild.
The choice for the new baby’s name has been kept under wraps – until now.
What Zara Tindall called her new baby?
Zara and Mike have called their new baby girl Lena Elizabeth.
A spokeswoman for the couple said: “The name is Lena Elizabeth. It was just a name they liked.”
Lena is pronounced Lay-na and Elizabeth is in honour of Zara’s grandmother the Queen.
Little Lena is the fourth grandchild for Prince Charles’ sister, Princess Anne.

Mia and Lena are second cousins to Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s tots, George, Charlotte and Louis.
In 2014, Mike Tindall unveiled Mia’s name via his Twitter account, saying: “For everyone who has asked what our daughter’s name, it’s Mia Grace Tindall.”
The couple welcomed Lena at the Stroud Maternity Unit of Gloucestershire Royal hospital.
A statement from Kensington Palace after the birth read: “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike’s parents, Mr Philip and Mrs Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news. The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course.”

The happy news comes after a painful time for the couple.
In 2016, Zara suffered a tragic miscarriage, one month after they announced the pregnancy to the public.
A spokesperson for the couple at the time released a statement saying: “Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.”
Mike has since opened up about the personal tragedy, saying their daughter Mia has been their “saving grace.”
There is no doubt the couple will be only too happy to have healthy little Lena to add to the family as a new sibling for Mia.

The Tindalls have a reputation for their down-to-earth approach to parenting and relaxed attitude to life.
Mike Tindall has no royal title, and Zara, born down the female line as the offspring of the daughter of a sovereign, is not entitled to be an HRH.
Lena will also not be an HRH, does not have a title and will be simply Miss Tindall.
The Tindalls are said to be adapting well to becoming a family of four.
