During Mike’s appearance on the ITV show, host Vernon Kay asked him if he would renew his marriage vows.
He replied, “Yes, I think I would.”
“Once you’ve been through what you’re describing, a marriage or a long-term relationship… it can’t always be roses and rainbows when you have kids. “
The couple married ten years ago and have been called “the most down-to-earth” royal couple.
The couple now have three children – Mia Grace, Lena Elizabeth and Lucas Philip.
Lucas was born on the bathroom floor in a surprise home birth earlier this year.
Speaking on his rugby podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, Mr Tindall spoke about the story of his son’s arrival.
He said: “Sunday got even better because a little boy came to my house… arrived very quickly. I couldn’t go to the hospital. On the bathroom floor.
“So yeah, that was running to the gym, grabbing a mat, going into the bathroom, putting the mat on the floor, the towels, a splint, a splint, a splint.”
The former England rugby player added: “The best thing about being home, the best thing was, as soon as he’s wrapped up he’s skin to skin, straight downstairs. TV room. Play in golf, that’s what we do.
Mike Tindall is a former England rugby union player who won 75 caps for England between 2000 and 2011 and was a member of the England squad that won the 2003 World Cup.
He married Zara Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne and eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, in 2011.
The couple chose Scotland for their big day, exchanging vows to Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh.
Royally Obsessed hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed Mike’s appearance on the ITV show on their podcast.
Ms Fiorito said: “It’s worth having a Mike Tindall Google appearing on Loose Women. This is a male-focused edition of ITV’s talk show.
“I couldn’t find this exact quote so I couldn’t get the audio piece, but he talks about his marriage to Zara and says it’s not always roses and rainbows , marriage isn’t meant to be that and the kids were a huge shock to him and a change in his system.
Ms Bowie added: “And I also love that Mike is so open about things, I think it’s very refreshing and I appreciate it.”
