Celebaby: Zara and Mike Tindall Pose For Hello Mag With Baby Mia
The Queen's granddaughter, Zara, and her husband Mike Tindall have shared pics of their five week old baby girl, Mia Grace, with Hello magazine.
It's an unusual move for a Royal couple - the papers are reporting that Zara and Mike are the first senior Royals to pose for a celebrity magazine with their baby. The snaps were taken by a friend of Zara's and subsequently sold to the magazine, which reportedly paid the couple a cool £150,000 for them, according to the Daily Mail.
Hello magazine reports:
"Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall introduce their beautiful daughter Mia and tell HELLO! why she's their greatest achievement in the latest issue of HELLO! magazine, number 1317, on sale now."
"A spokesman for HELLO! magazine said: "We are delighted that Zara and Mike Tindall chose to share their beautiful baby pictures with HELLO!""
Zara, despite being 13th in line to the throne, does not hold a royal title. She chose to have her baby at an NHS hospital and took to Twitter to announce her daughter's name.
"Zara told HELLO! that the couple 'never even considered going privately', but did hire a maternity nurse to help out in the early days. The new mum said they hired the nurse 'mostly to learn bits and pieces like bathing and feeding and general routine'."
"Mike, who was described by his wife as a 'hands on father', said: "I still keeping looking at Mia and thinking 'Oh! We made that!""
Congrats to the happy little family. Wonder how long it'll be before little Mia takes her first riding lesson?
