Zara Tindall’s baby daughter Lena makes first adorable high-profile outing
Zara and husband Mike welcomed their second child in June
Zara Tindall is regularly spotted out and about in Gatcombe Park with her family, but on Friday she was joined by a very special addition – her newborn baby girl Lena. The Olympic silver medallist was pictured riding her horse while her mum Princess Anne, her elder daughter Mia and her friends watched from the side. Baby Lena, who was bundled up in a blue sleepsuit, was carried by one of Zara’s best friends, trainer Dolly Maude. At one point, four-year-old Mia was pictured adorably reaching up to play with her baby sister.
Zara and her husband Mike welcomed their second child in June, although this is the first time their baby has made a high-profile outing. Since the birth, the Queen’s granddaughter has opened up about tragically suffering two miscarriages. Zara lost one of her babies in 2016, making the news public in a statement, but she recently revealed that she had a second miscarriage afterwards.
“For me, the worst bit was that we had to tell everyone – everyone knew,” she told the Sunday Times. “I had to go through having the baby because it was so far along. I then had another miscarriage really early on.” She added: “It was a time when my family came to the fore and I needed them. You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw, but, as with everything, time’s a great healer.”
Her brother Peter Phillips has also spoken about how the family “rallied around” Zara during the “tough” time. Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Peter said: “We all rallied round and it was a really tough time for her and Mike and fortunately we all live relatively close to one another so it was good to be there to be supportive.”
He continued: “She’s a fantastic mother. Mia’s growing up in a loving home and now Lena is going to do exactly the same. They’re very versatile children and when you grow up on the road in the equestrian world you have a very big family that’s always there to help and support.”
