And baby makes four! Tennis star Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears have welcomed the couple’s second child, a baby girl, BBC News reports after Murray played Roger Federer in a charity match in Glasglow.
According to the BBC, the baby arrived “a couple of weeks ago.” Murray’s grandmother, Shirley Erskine, said in an interview that she was “delighted” to learn the news about the baby, and that the happy mom is in good health.
“All’s well, which is the main thing,” Erskine said, adding “she’s a little playmate for Sophia, who I’m sure will be equally thrilled,” referring to the couple’s 1-year-old daughter Sophia Olivia.
Erskine said that the family would likely learn about the new baby’s name over the weekend. “I don’t know much at the moment because we haven’t seen her,” she said, “but we’re looking forward to having a little cuddle and a little play with Sophia, who is running about all over the place and chattering.”
The great-grandmother was also the first to break the news about Sophia’s birth, while speaking to BBC Scotland back in 2016.
The award-winning athlete and the author got married in a romantic ceremony in Dunblane, Scotland in April 2015 at the Dunblane Cathedral. The duo’s engagement was announced in November 2014.
Prior to his wedding, Murray said in an interview with BBC Sports that he wasn’t worried about tying the knot. “We’ve been together like nine-and-a-half years and we’ve lived together for six or seven years as well, so I don’t think a whole lot’s going to change,” he said. “I kind of feel like we have been married already in terms of the way we spend our lives together and live together. I think I will be more nervous about starting a family that would be more life changing, in a good way.”
Congratulations to the happy family!
