Zara Phillips Tindall is now about six months pregnant, and the royal’s husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, has opened up about fatherhood.
"I'm not sure whether fatherhood will help my coaching, I'll have to wait and see,” Mike told This Is Gloucester when asked about the growing number of parents on the team.
"There will be lots of good surprises to being a dad, but you just don't know what they will be,” he said. "I might turn into a philosopher, you never know!
"I'm godfather to George [his friend James Simpson-Daniel’s son] and godfather to some friends in Bath, and there's obviously a big baby boom happening at the club as well,” Mike added.
"I don't think it's going to change too much, I'm really looking forward to it though,” he said. “It's great to see all the boys starting families, it's bringing another dimension to an already tight-knit squad, and that's really positive. It's a natural progression, it's the right time for me. We've discussed the timing of it a lot.”
"We've probably been ready for a while. It's just the timing in terms of both our sports,” Mike said of Zara’s pregnancy.
"We've found the right time, it's perfect for Zara and it wasn't going to change a huge amount for me, it was always going to be in the middle of the season. But it's great that it's happening with me being here, at Gloucester. And we feel very fortunate to be able to move forward with that now."
The Tindall family always seems to be just a few months behind Zara’s cousin Prince William – their wedding was just three months after the Royal Wedding, and they announced Zara’s pregnancy just two weeks before Prince George was born – but this might mean good news for the family.
As we reported, source told the Daily Express that Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge may choose Zara as one of Prince George’s godparents because her baby will be close in age to the prince.
“Don’t rule out Zara Phillips. She has always got on well with William and the fact that her child will be a similar age could be a factor as the cousins will grow up seeing a lot of each other,” the source said.© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
