How many children does Zara Phillips have?

Zara Philips and her husband Mike Tindall have three children together.

Their first child, daughter Mia, was born in January 2014.

Zara gave birth to their second little girl, Lena, weighing 9lb 3oz in June 2018, at the Stroud Maternity Unit.

In March 2021, the couple welcomed their first son, called Lucas Phillip.

Zara has also spoken before about the two miscarriages she suffered.

Revealing the devastating news in an interview with the Sunday Times, she said: “For me, the worst bit was that we had to tell everyone – everyone knew. I had to go through having the baby because it was so far along. I then had another miscarriage really early on.”

She added: “It was a time when my family came to the fore and I needed them. “You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw, but, as with everything, time’s a great healer.”
