Regarding possible names for the incoming third child, Mike joked on the podcast, "We're not sure what to do, you know Covie or Covina? I don't know where to go with the names right now." When asked how his wife is doing, he said, "Zed is very good, always cautious about things that have happened in the past and yes, I'm really looking forward to it." (Zara had two miscarriages between her daughters' births.)
"This time I would like a boy," mused the former rugby player. "I have two girls, I would like a boy." He quickly added, "But I'll love whether a boy or a girl – but please be a boy!"
Regardless, 6-year-old Mia "requested another sister or brother, so hopefully we filled that role for her," added Mike. "She just wants something different now. Lena is growing up, she's 2 1/2 now, she wants someone younger to play with them and dress up."
His colleagues noted what "very, very good news" it was to end this largely miserable year. Mike agreed, "It's a good ending."
