Andy Murray’s wife gives birth to baby girl

The tennis star became a first time dad after wife Kim Sears gave birth on Sunday

 

Baby Murray, who is yet to be named, was 8lb 10oz when she was born. 

The athlete’s agent confirmed the news, saying: “Andy and Kim had a daughter in the early hours of Sunday morning and the family are doing well.” 

Andy’s mother Judy tweeted a picture of the gold post box in his hometown of Dunblane which has been decorated with pink ribbons to celebrate the news. 

The post box was painted gold after Andy won a gold medal at the London Olympics. 

But the celebrations didn’t end there, with many shops in his hometown decorating their storefronts with pink banners and signs reading: “It’sa girl!” 

One local butcher even created a special type of sausage in honour of baby Murray using strawberry and chilli to make it pink. 

In the run-up to last month’s Australian Open, Murray said his family would be a “priority”. 

The world number two made it clear that he would have cut short his first grand slam of the year if the baby had arrived earlier than expected. 

He said: “My child is more important to me, and my wife is more important to me, than a tennis match.” 

Andy Murray has now joined the likes of Louis Tomlinson, Mark Zuckerberg and Sam Claflin who also had their first babies in the last few months. 

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson seems to be adapting to fatherhood quickly after he tweeted a black and white picture of him holding his son, accompanied by the words: “Meet my little lad, Freddie.” 

It has been reported that the singer has moved out to California to be close to his new-born son and that he will also be paying £10,000 per monthin child support, amounting to £2million over his lifetime.
