Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall welcome their second child

You won't believe how much it weighed!

Zara Phillips and husband Mike Tindall have welcomed their second child. 

Buckingham Palace released a statement that read, ‘Mrs Michael Tindall was safely delivered of a baby girl on 18th June, at Stroud Maternity Unit. Mr Tindall was present at the birth. The weight of the baby was 9lbs 3oz.

‘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.

‘This baby is the second child for Zara and Mike, the fourth grandchild for The Princess Royal and the seventh great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.’

The couple welcomed a baby girl that weighed 4.16kgs.

The happy news comes more than one year after Zara revealed she had suffered a miscarriage just days before Christmas in December 2016. 

The couple are already proud parents to 4-yer-old Mia Tindall. 

At the time of the miscarriage, Mike told The Sunday Times: ‘The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter.

‘However down we feel she will come running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we can see her grow up. I can take her swimming and I can take her to Ninja Tots. You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.’

Congratulations to Zara and Mike!
