319

ZARA TINDALL’s news that she is having another child has prompted a heartwarming response from royal fans, but husband Mike’s ‘hilarious’ suggestion for a baby name left some horrified.

Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, and her husband, Mike, have confirmed that they are expecting their third child next year. The pregnancy announcement was made this week on Mike’s podcast, ‘The Good, The Bad & The Rugby’. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed their surprise at Mike’s suggestions for potential baby names.

Ms Fiorito told listeners: “He talked about some possible names, which I thought was hilarious.

“He said ‘Covi’ or ‘Covina’ in homage to the year that we’ve had.

“This can’t be serious. I really hope it isn’t.

“I saw that and I was like, ‘no, no, please no’.”zara tindall pregnant news royal baby mike tindall

Ms Bowie joked: “This poor child cannot be named ‘Covi’ or ‘Covina’.

“It is such a dad type of joke to make though.”

Currently the royal couple have two children: Mia Grace, aged six, and Lena Elizabeth, aged 2.

The podcast hosts also revealed Mike’s preference for his third child.

Ms Fiorito said: “He said he’s hoping for a boy, which is funny to say.

“He’s on a podcast and lets this news slip that they’re expecting a third child.

“Then he said ‘oh we want a boy after two girls’.”

She continued: “I don’t know, it’s just kind of funny.

“But he did add that he would be happy no matter what.

“So well done, Mike! Good thing you slipped that in.”

Mia was born in January 2014 while Lena arrived in June 2018.

The new baby is likely to be due in spring 2021.
