Andy Murray and Kim Sears announce they are expecting first child

Kim Sears is pregnant with tennis star Andy Murray’s baby, according to reports.
The newly-married couple are said to be delighted with the news that their first child is due in February.

The Sun reported that tennis world number 3 Murray told his family the news after his 27-year-old wife had a 12-week scan in hospital.

It comes after the pair married at a ceremony in Murray’s home town of Dunblane, Scotland, in April.

The tennis star has been in superb form since the wedding, and was only knocked out of Wimbledon at the semi-final stage when Roger Federer put in a sensational performance at the All England Club.

His mum, Judy, has revealed she is excited by the prospect of being a “very active granny” in the future.

Ironically, only weeks earlier fellow former Wimbledon champion Andre Agassi urged the world No3 to start a family to improve his performances and ‘put stuff in perspective’.

Murray, who won gold at the 2012 London Olympics, said in 2013 he and Kim – who have been together for a decade – were considering having a baby.

Previously he has joked his two terrier dogs were his kids and even Skyped them daily when he was playing away in tournaments.

The news comes just days before Murray’s coach Amelie Mauresmo is expected to give birth to her baby.

She announced she was pregnant two days before the British tennis star’s wedding to Kim Sears in the 12th century Dunblane Cathedral followed by a reception at his own five star luxury hotel Cromlix House.

The former world No1 tennis star, who is openly gay, broke the news on social media she is expecting her first baby.

Sussex-born Kim, who is the daughter of former Lawn Tennis Association head of women’s tennis Nigel Sears, met Murray at the US Open in 2005.

She was once described by mother-in-law Judy Murray as ‘the best thing to happen to Andy’.

They split briefly in 2009, before rekindling their relationship.

The couple live in Surrey with their two Border terriers, Maggie May and Rusty.
