Zara Tindall and her husband Mike Tindall have announced they've had a baby boy. 

• Zara Tindall has just had her third child, a son named Lucas. 

• The newborn boy is the Queen's 10th great-grandchild. 

• In other Royal news, Prince Harry snags an executive role at a mental health app

Mike and Zara are already parents to two little girls, Mia Grace, who is six, and Lena Elizabeth, who is two. This new baby is the couple's first son together. A spokesperson for the royal couple announced they have called their son Lucas Philip Tindall, he was born weighing 8lb 4oz.

Mike Tindall announced the news about the birth of his newborn son on his podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby. 

Mike announced on his podcast, "Obviously Scotland, absolutely, actually I was genuinely angry after the England game. And then on Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house!"

Mike and their two daughters currently live at Princess Anne's Gatcombe Estate in Gloucester.

Zara's son is the Queen's 10th great-grandchild. The Queen's 11th Great-grandchild is also expected by Meghan and Harry in the Summer. Princess Eugenie gave birth to the Queen's ninth great-grandchild in February, her son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Mike announced that they were expecting their third child on his podcast last year, in December 2020. "It's been a good week for me, had a little scan last week - third Tindall on its way," he revealed.

He continued to say, "I'd like a boy this time, I’ve got two girls, I would like a boy. I’ll love it whether a boy or a girl – but please be a boy."

He then joked that he would name his third child in homage to the Coronavirus pandemic. He joked, "We're not sure what to do, Covi or Covina – I don't know where to go with names."

We now know that although Mike and Zara did get a little boy, they opted against the pandemic-themed baby name!
