The proud parents are, understandably, all smiles as they pose with their beautiful bundle of joy.
Phillips, an Olympic equestrian and Queen Elizabeth II‘s granddaughter, gave birth to little Mia on Jan. 17, with her former rugby captain husband by her side during the delivery. At the time of her birth, Mia weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces.
“The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike’s parents, Mr. Phillip and Mrs. Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news,” the Queen’s press secretary said in a statement following the baby’s arrival. “The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course.”
Sure enough, her moniker was revealed six days later by Tindall, who tweeted on Jan. 23, “For everyone who has asked what our daughters name [is], it’s Mia Grace Tindall.”
Mia is sixteenth in line to the British throne. Her mother, meanwhile, does hold a royal title and is not referred to as Her Royal Highness.
Phillips and Tindall met during England’s Rugby World Cup-winning campaign in Australia in 2003. They tied the knot at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland, in July 2011.
