The 12-year-old has fast become a carbon copy of his dad – and not just in the looks department! Cruz has also inherited the tennis gene and has been honing in on his skills. Last year, the rising sports star took out his first tennis tournament.

Lleyton has previously spoken about how he believes Cruz will be playing in the Australian Open by the time he’s 14.

“Hopefully he gets a chance to play in this great event if he wants to. Hopefully he beats me,” the proud dad said.

Eldest daughter Mia is becoming a fashionista in her own right and recently stunned fans with her glamorous, grown-up look as she rung in her 15th birthday.

As for the baby of the family, Ava’s Instagram feed is flooded with pictures of herself showing off her impressive gymnastic and dance skills.
