Has had a baby girl weighing 9lb 3oz.

Really pleased for them. I think they're a lovely family.

That's great news, especially after the heartache of losing their other baby.

MawBroon Tue 19-Jun-18 14:14:08

Excellent news!

Bathsheba Tue 19-Jun-18 15:29:50

What lovely news, so happy for them after all the heartache.

Yes, indeed. It's always nice to hear of some good news.

BlueBelle Tue 19-Jun-18 17:03:18

I m glad that big, little lady is out, her mum looked very uncomfortable at the recent wedding

Greenfinch Tue 19-Jun-18 17:15:31

Does that mean that Anne now has four granddaughters ?

Jalima1108 Tue 19-Jun-18 17:21:36

Um .... not sure

merlotgran Tue 19-Jun-18 17:31:13

Yes she does. Both her children have two daughters each now.

Lovely to hear the good news. Zara reminded me of how I looked and felt just before I had DS who was nine pounds.

What fantastic news and what a wonderful year for the Queen, two new great grandchildren, a new wife for her grandson Harry, plus the prescious gift of her sight being restored and her husband recovering so well from his hip

Yes good news for the Tindalls, they are so down to earth, Mia is a real little character. I wish them all well.

SueDonim Tue 19-Jun-18 20:09:52

Lovely news, I wish them all well.

I read that the baby was born in Stroud hospital - no fancy maternity units for Zara!

PECS Tue 19-Jun-18 23:06:29

My DD1 was 9lb 3oz too , She is 5' 1" and size 10 now as a 40 something!

Deedaa Wed 20-Jun-18 18:50:19

DS was that size and is now a 6'4" 40 something. Wouldn't like to think about how much he weighs!

JustALaugh Wed 20-Jun-18 18:54:13

My 2nd baby was 10lb 13oz!! (He's 34 now haha but I still like to brag/moan about the size of him)

Jalima1108 Wed 20-Jun-18 20:23:46

DGS was about that size JustALaugh shock

Apparently I was 9lbs 6ozs but only grew to 5'5" sad

Jalima1108 Wed 20-Jun-18 20:24:47

weight, not size.
He is now very tall for his age.

SueDonim Wed 20-Jun-18 21:25:31

An old friend of mine had the dubious accolade of giving birth to the largest baby of the year in our local maternity unit. He was 12lb 4oz. shock

Strangely, neither he nor his older sibling, who had been a mere shrimp at 10lb 8oz, grew up to be notably tall or big.

JustALaugh Wed 20-Jun-18 21:28:19

My 1st son was 6lb 14 at birth, and 18 inches long. He was a month early. He's now 6ft 2, weighs 15 stone.

My 2nd son was 10lb 13, and 23ins long. He's now 5ft 10, and weighs 12st

Greenfinch Wed 20-Jun-18 22:20:18

I wonder what they will call her. I like the fact that Zara and her brother have chosen pretty modern names for their children rather than the traditional ones favoured by some of the other Royals :Savannah, Isla and Mia.
