Another royal-ish baby is on the way! Zara Tindall, one of Queen Elizabeth II's grandchildren and a cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry, is expecting her second child.
Technically, the child will be more royal-adjacent and won't actually hold a royal title, since Zara, 35, and her husband Mike Tindall, 38, don't hold one. It will be Queen Elizabeth's sixth great grandchild.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace confirmed the news on Nov. 30.
"The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and members of the Royal Family are delighted with the news," a Palace statement read.
Zara is the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal, and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips.
As the cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry, her child will be a second cousin to William and Duchess Kate's two kids, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 18 months.
Zara and Mike married in July 2011. They already have a daughter together, 2-year-old Mia Grace.
Although they hold no royal titles, Zara and Mike are quite well-known, especially in the sporting world. Mike is a retired rugby player and Zara is a professional equestrian. She became the first person from the royal bloodline to win an Olympic medal when she took home the silver at the London Games in 2012.
She narrowly missed qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
"Just a quick one to say thank you for the messages," Mike tweeted on Wednesday. "We are very very happy about the little one on its way. 2017 is already starting well!!"
