Zara and Mike Tindall have revealed that they have welcomed their third child - a baby boy. The couple has named him Lucas Philip Tindal.

A spokeswoman for the Queen’s granddaughter and her husband announced that he was born on Sunday evening, weighing 8lbs 4oz. The baby, who is 22nd in line to the throne, was born at the couples home in Gatcombe Park.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are "delighted" at the news, Buckingham Palace has said.

Revealing more details on his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugb‪y, Mike Tindall, who is a former England rugby player, said Lucas 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."

Mike also revealed that luckily they still had help on hand. "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," he said.

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.
