Former British Wimbledon champion Andy Murray’s wife Kim Sears is expecting, with close friends and family said to be privy to the information.
Murray and Sears are expecting the baby to arrive in February and it is assumed that Kim, 27, has recently had her 12-week scan, with the baby due in February, The Sun reported Friday.
Murray and Sears married in April this year and currently live in Surrey with their two dogs. They were engaged in November last year and have been in a long-term relationship for a decade.
The 28-year-old joins fellow superstars Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, who are also married with young children. Federer famously has two sets of twins with wife Mirka, while Djokovic and Jelena Ristic welcomed their son Stefan into the world last November.
The world’s third ranked tennis star also broke the news to firmly star mum Judy fairly months after she was dreaming of being very active granny.
Sources further revealed that 55 year old tennis coach and Andy’s brother Jamie married to Venezuelan actress Alejandra Gutierrez are delighted.
Murray fans were speedy to congratulate the couple after news of the pregnancy was reported, tweeting him their best wishes.
