Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter reportedly gave birth on the bathroom floor of her home.

Zara Tindall and former rugby star Mike Tindall welcomed their baby boy Sunday. Mike opened up about the home birth on his own podcast Thursday.

The baby “arrived very quickly,” Mike Tindall said during the podcast. The couple “didn’t make it to hospital” and instead Zara had the baby “on the bathroom floor.”

Mike claimed Zara’s friend came over to help with the birth. “She drove up just as we had assumed the posish [position] and the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived,” he said. (RELATED: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Share Rare Photo Featuring The Duchess’ Baby Bump)

Mike admitted as soon as the baby was out and wrapped up he was back downstairs watching golf while utilizing the skin-on-skin technique recommended for newborns. “I literally was like ‘Yep, snip, snip, snip.’ I’ve got a boy. I’m out,'” Mike said. “The best thing about being at home … as soon he’s wrapped up, he’s skin on skin, straight downstairs. TV room. Golf on.”

Lucas Philip Tindall is Queen Elizabeth II’s 10th great-grandchild, according to Page Six. The baby is 22nd in line for the throne but reportedly won’t take the royal title.

“The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news and look forward to meeting their 10th great-grandchild when circumstances allow,” a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told The Times.
