Mike Tindall Opens Up About Bathroom Birth
While speaking on The Good, The Bad, & The Rugby podcast, Mike revealed their little baby boy at home. He said:
So, it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get a mat on the floor, towels down, 'brace-brace-brace.
Mike cleared up that he was not one to personally deliver the kid. Opening up the incident with Good Morning Britain, Mike revealed that the midwife got in time, so he did not have to go down to the area. He stayed at the top end, supporting his wife.
Mike described that it was not what they were expecting, but his wife’s friend Dolly controlled the situation until the midwife arrived. He added:
So far — touch wood — he's been great in terms of his sleeping and eating and doing everything that a five-week-old does.
Zara delivered the baby on the bathroom floor as the baby arrived very quickly.
