He continued: "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.
The Queen's granddaughter endured two miscarriages before welcoming little Lena. Touching upon their previous heartbreak, Mike said: "Z is very good, always careful because of things that have happened in the past, and really looking forward to it."
Asked about the baby's due date, Mike remained tight-lipped and replied: "We like to play our cards close to the chest." But he revealed his eldest child has not been told the good news: "We haven't told Mia yet because we knew she would tell everyone at school. Now that we've gone through the scan, yes (of) course we'll tell her.
