Tennis champ’s baby news: Andy Murray Baby, Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears are expecting their first baby, it has been reported.
The couple, who married in the tennis player’s hometown of Dunblane in April, have announced the pregnancy to their family and friends, according to The Sun newspaper.
The announcement came after Kim, 27, visited hospital for a 12-week scan, with the baby due in February, the newspaper reported.
The former Wimbledon champion’s mother Judy recently told a magazine that she was “really looking forward to being a granny” and is now hoping to play a “very active” role in her grandchild’s life.
Murray, 28, has enjoyed a strong run of form after marrying his long-term girlfriend in front of family and friends at 12th century Dunblane Cathedral on April 11, reaching the semi-finals of the French Open and Wimbledon, and winning his first titles on clay.
The pair described their wedding and reception at Murray’s own five star luxury hotel Cromlix House as “the best weekend of our lives”.
Murray fans were quick to congratulate the couple after news of Kim’s pregnancy was reported, tweeting him their best wishes.
So excited Andy Murray and Kim are going to have a baby !!!!!!!!

With Amelie & Kim both pregnant, I’m imagining Andy Murray starring in a “Father of the Bride II” remake right now. It would be WAY better.

The announcement comes just weeks after fellow former Wimbledon champion Andre Agassi urged Murray to start a family to “put stuff into perspective” and improve his performances.
Speaking to Sky Sports 3 this year about his marriage, he said: “It has been nice and a lot of people have spoken about the honeymoon period.
“But we’ve been together a very long time and getting married was the next step.”
Kim and Andy are said to have already shared their happy new with friends and family
In 2013 the former US open and Wimbledon champion said he and Kim had been an item for eight years and were thinking about starting a family.
Writing in his autobiography, Andy joked that having his two dogs sometimes felt like having to look after children.
“It is not the same as having kids – or at least I don’t think it is – but that’s sometimes what it feels like,” he said.
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.
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” and has been described by friends as having a great sense of humour.
Earlier this year she was caught on camera allegedly mouthing “F*****g have that, you Czech flash f***’ towards opponent the British number one’s semi-final opponent Thomas Berdych.
But she managed to laugh it off by showing up to her then fiancé’s next game donning a t-shirt that read: ‘Parental Advisory: Explicit Content’.
