‘I asked Zara and many people about bottle and breastfeeding, and they’ve all said, “You just won’t know until you try”.’
James, 36, who co-hosts The Good, The Bad The Rugby podcast with fellow former rugby ace Mike, 43, called praised the couple’s ‘brilliant’ parenting and said he’d like their baby to grow up like ‘cheeky tomboy’ Mia.
‘I get on really well with Mia,’ he said. ‘I kind of want our daughter to be like her. Cheeky, a bit of a tomboy and girly when she needs to be. I’ll take any advice from them.’
Former rugby union international Mike previously revealed on their podcast that his eldest daughter Mia is following in his footsteps by playing rugby for their local team.

He said his daughter, who is 22nd in line to the throne, was part of a team but often insisted she ‘didn’t like’ the sport before playing.
He said: ‘It’s always hard to get Mia to go, she’s like ‘I don’t like it’ and then you get there, and she’s off.’
‘Mia scored a couple… it was an eight-all thriller in the first game and then a nine-all thriller in the second.’
Speaking about his daughter’s involvement in tag rugby, Mike later added: It’s funny how much she’s changed over the last, sort of, this year, since they’ve been back.
‘[She’s] figuring out how to avoid people because before they’d just all be really bunched in.

‘Now they’re getting more, where they run across but then they’re all stepping back, and people are just falling around.’
Earlier this year, Mia joined Mike for a rare public appearance as she watched him captain a football team for a charity game in Gloucester.
In January, Mike came out of retirement for the Rugby For Heroes team against a Gloucester City Legends team, which raised money to support military veterans.
