British Royal Family

Royal baby news: Zara and Mike Tindall have named their second baby

And there's a special nod to the royal family in there.

Zara and Mike Tindall have named their second daughter who is in 19th in line to the British throne. And it's the perfect mix of something a bit unusual and something more traditional.

A spokeswoman for the Queen's granddaughter and her husband announced that "The name is Lena Elizabeth. It was just a name they liked."

Lena is pronounced Lay-na and her middle name is a nod to the new baby's great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Lena Elizabeth Tindall was born 18th June at Stroud Maternity Unit in Gloucestershire and was already a record-breaking bub as the heaviest royal baby in recent years weighing in at 4.16kg (9lbs 3oz).

She is the second daughter to the couple, their eldest, Mia Grace, was born in 2014 and is the seventh great-grandchild of the Queen and Prince Philip.

On Christmas Eve 2016, Zara and Mike made the devastating announcement they had lost their second child just one month after the couple announced their pregnancy to the public.

"Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy," a rep for the couple said at the time.

Mike Tindall described daughter Mia as the couple's "saving grace."

Speaking about their loss in May, Mike revealed little Mia had been their "saving grace."

"One thing you do learn is how many other people have had to go through the same," Mike told the Sunday Times.

"The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now three. However down we feel she will come running up in our faces," Mike continued.

As her mother does not hold a royal title, Lena will forgo the HRH and simply be referred to as "Miss Tindall,"

The Tindalls are said to be adapting well to becoming a family of four. Congratulations!
