Sir Andy Murray and wife Kim Sears are celebrating as they welcomed their son into the world.
The tennis pro and Kim recently announced their happy news with friends and family, revealing they have had a little boy. Andy’s grandfather Roy Erskine, 88, told The Sun: “It’s a wee boy. He was born during the week, I don’t know what his name is yet. My wife is away down, she went down this morning.”
It was only last week that the former Wimbledon champ revealed that Kim was due any day. Andy had been away from home in Antwerp, Belgium, to take part in the European Open which started on Monday 14 October, but admitted that he was ready to pick up and leave the tournament at a minute’s notice should he get the call that their new arrival was on the way. “Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week,” he told The Times. “If the baby came early, I would miss Antwerp and then maybe play at the Paris Masters.” Andy reportedly chose to compete in the European Open rather than the rival Stockholm Open, which runs at the same time, because it would mean a shorter flight home to the UK – which now appears to have been a wise decision.
