Zara Phillips’ Husband Mike Tindall Speaks About Baby Mia Grace

New father Mike Tindall has opened up about his baby daughter for the first time since her arrival

Mike Tindall is hoping he’ll be able to mix the two most important things in his life – his daughter Mia and his beloved Gloucester rugby club.

Speaking to the Gloucestershire Echo, the rugby player said ‘There’s another Gloucester supporter for life – she’s a Shed Head.’

Referring to the name given to the club’s supporters, it’s not quite the regal title that we were expecting, but it’s adorable nonetheless.

Mike also opened up about his baby’s first week. ‘It’s been alright actually – not going to Perpignan (to play in the Heineken Cup last Saturday) made things a bit easier,’ he said. ‘It’s been a good week with the new arrival and it was topped off with a brilliant result from the boys.’

And on the subject of new parenthood and sleepless nights, it appears that little Mia is ‘very good’ as Mike confirmed, ‘The nights haven’t been too bad.’ 
Zara hasn’t yet spoken publically about her daughter’s arrival but an official family photo including Mia is thought to be released soon.
