Zara wore a red mask, with her other half in blue. It wasn't long before fans rushed to the comment section to leave supportive messages such as: "Signed up after hearing you talk about this on the podcast. Ready to go!"

Christmas aside, it's been a magical month for Zara and Mike, who are expecting their third child together. 

The wonderful news was confirmed by Mike himself at the beginning of December on his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, with the father-of-two telling his co-hosts James Haskell and Alex Payne: "It's been a good week for me, had a little scan last week – third Tindall on its way."

He went on to say: "I'd like a boy this time, I've got two girls, I would like a boy. I'll love it whether a boy or a girl – but please be a boy!" 

To groans from one of his co-hosts, Mike then joked: "We're not sure what to do Covi or Covina – I don't know where to go with names."

Zara, 39, and Mike, 42, have been married since July 2011 and are parents to two little girls: Mia, six, and two-year-old Lena.
