Zara and Mike Tindall welcomed their newborn son, Lucas Philip Tindal, last week and Mike has already shared an update on how he is doing.

Speaking on the latest episode of his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugb‪y, he told co-hosts James Haskell and Alex Payne: "It's been good actually, I can't complain."

A former England rugby player, Mike couldn’t resist joking about getting his son into the game. “He's pretty good the wee man, he loves his Umbro Lord's work stash, that we've already got him in but he, no, he's been great so far."

Mike announced the birth of third child on the previous episode of his podcast and revealed he was actually born on the bathroom floor.

"Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house," Mike said. "Arrived very quickly. Didn't make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor. So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat on the floor, towels down, brace, brace, brace."

"Fortunately the midwife who was going to meet us at the hospital wasn't that far away so she drove up just as we had assumed the posit (position) and the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived," Mike added.

Zara and Mike are already parents to seven-year-old Mia and two-year-old Lena. They decided to give their son the middle name Philip in tribute to both Mike’s father and Zara’s grandfather.

Lucas Philip Tindal is the 10th grandchild of the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
