He said: “Crazy weekend really wasn’t it?”

After talking about Saturday’s rugby matches, Mike added: “Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house.”

What else did Mike say?

Mike revealed his son was born on the bathroom floor because the couple couldn’t make it to the hospital.

He said: “Arrived very quickly. Didn’t make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor.”

The former rugby player added: “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 added that Lucas was born at 6pm on Sunday.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the couple said: “Zara and Mike Tindall are happy to announce the birth of their third child, Lucas Philip Tindall.”

A statement from Buckingham Palace read: “The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news…

“…and look forward to meeting their 10th Great Grandchild when circumstances allow.”

It comes after Mike confirmed Zara’s third pregnancy on his podcast.

He said in December: “It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week – third Tindall on its way.”
