World No. 2 ranked tennis player Roger Federer announced on his blog that he and girlfriend, Mirka Vavrinec, are expecting their first child together.
“I also have some really awesome news to share with all of you,” he said after telling fans that he is eager to get back out on court after a back injury. “Mirka and I are excited to let you know that we will be parents this summer!”
Roger, who arrived in Indian Wells, California, earlier this week for the Masters tournament, is excited to be a dad.
“Mirka is pregnant and we are so happy to be starting a family together,” he wrote. “This is a dream come true for us. We love children, and we are looking forward to being parents for the first time. Mirka is feeling great and everything is going well.”
