UPI News Service, 11/08/2017
British tennis star Andy Murray is a dad of two.
The 30-year-old Scottish athlete's wife, Kim Sears, gave birth to a baby girl in England "a couple of weeks ago," according to the BBC.
Murray and Sears are already parents to 21-month-old daughter Sophia Olivia.
Murray's grandmother, Shirley Erskine, told the BBC she is "delighted" by the couple's new addition, and will soon meet the baby in London.
"All's well, which is the main thing," Erskine said. "She's a little playmate for Sophia, who I'm sure will be equally thrilled."
"We'll find out this weekend," she added. "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."
First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon was among those to offer congratulations online.
"Congratulations to Kim and Andy (and to granny @JudyMurray too)," she tweeted Wednesday.
Murray played Swiss tennis star Roger Federer at a charity tennis match Tuesday in Glasgow. He shared a photo with the 36-year-old athlete on Instagram ahead of the game, writing, "Giving this guy his first Scottish experience today..."
