Game, set, baby! Tennis great Andy Murray welcomes brand new son with wife Kim Sears

And then there were three.

British tennis legend Andy Murray has just welcomed a brand new baby with his wife Kim Sears, it has been confirmed.
UK publication The Sun broke the news on Monday evening, sharing a statement from Andy's grandfather, Roy Erskine, who also revealed the new baby's gender - a boy!
Being notoriously private in their private life, it's not often we get updates about the Murray family, so the news is especially exciting!
Erskine told the publication: "It's a wee boy. He was born during the week."
The new great-grandfather added that he didn't know if a name had been picked yet, but that his wife, Andy's grandmother, was going to meet the new baby that day.
Last week, Andy revealed that his wife was due to give birth any day, telling The Times: "Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week."
Well, it looks like he was bang on, and the family will no doubt be happier than ever with the new addition.

The new baby boy joins two older sisters, Sophia, three and Edie, two.
Andy has previously commented on his children ahead of the birth of his son, saying: "We'll be pretty busy with three children under the age of four."
He's probably not wrong!

In August 2018, Murray revealed the name of his second daughter Edie after a whopping ten-months since her birth.
And even at that age, the little one was clearly already putting Murray through his paces, with the tennis star sharing a picture of himself on Instagram sporting a bloody nose and writing: "When playing with your 10 month old daughter gets a bit too physical!"

Murray has spoken previously about the joys of fatherhood, gushing to The Guardian about what surprised him the most after his first daughter Sophia was born.
"[It's] how quickly everything changes – from the first day she was born," he told the publication.
"You don't notice it when you're there every day but you look back at a photo on the day she was born to one taken five days later to now, a few weeks on, and you see how much things change on a daily basis."
And he was undeniably keen to ensure his children are proud of him, adding: "[Fatherhood] is a positive thing – and tennis not being your priority can help. It lends perspective when you have a bad loss or bad practice.
"The outcome of a match is not everything but I want my daughter to be proud of her dad when she grows up and sees what I did."
Sounds like some great words to live by. Congratulations team Murray!
