According to The Associated Press, Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne and granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, is expecting her third child with husband Mike Tindall, he said on his podcast Wednesday. The couple, who wed in 2011, also share two daughters, Mia, 6, and Lena, 2.

“I’d like a boy this time. … I’ll love it whether a boy or a girl, but please be a boy,” Mike Tindall, 42, said on the podcast, according to the AP. The former rugby player also made a tongue-in-cheek remark that he and his wife, 39, are considering the names “Covi or Covinna,” a nod to the coronavirus pandemic.

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, know about the pregnancy and are “delighted,” a spokesman told People magazine.
