Mike Tindall's Surprising Initial Bonding Moment With Baby Lucas

The royal couple’s third child was born on the bathroom floor at their home on the Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire.

The devoted father and former rugby star discussed Lucas’ dramatic birth on his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby.

“Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house,” Mike shared, adding how Lucas, “arrived very quickly. Didn’t make it to the 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 recalled. He said that Zara’s friend Dolly who was present recognised that the royal mother would not have made it into hospital.

“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 not only shared Lucas’ unexpected birth story in unprecedented detail, but he also revealed the surprising first bonding experience he had with his son, adding a positive twist to the unplanned home birth.

“The best thing about being at home, the best thing was, as soon as he’s wrapped up, he’s skin on skin, straight downstairs. TV room. Golf on. This is what we’re doing,” the dad-of-three said.

In 2020 Mike spoke on the same podcast about his daughter Mia’s desires for another sibling. At the time, the rugby player said: “She’ll be happy about it, she’s been requesting another sister or brother, so we’ve hopefully fulfilled that role for her. 

“She just wants something different now, Lena’s growing up she’s two-and-a-half now, and she wants something younger to play with and dress up.”

Zara and Mike’s connection with their three children is evident. The devoted parents are often seen warmly interacting with their kids during public outings and showing ample affection.

Photographer James Whatling, who specializes in documenting the royal family said: “There are lots of pictures, often of Zara cuddling and kissing him – they seem to be a very tactile family, which is lovely. 

“He’s a mini-me of Mike,” James says, speaking about little Lucas. The adorable tot is already a regular at the Festival of British Eventing. “He’s always getting involved, muddy, messing around with his sisters – he’s born into it,” James said. “Lucas is a real Tindall.
