Tennis pro Andy Murray has revealed that he and his wife Kim Sears are set to welcome their third child together.
The Scottish Wimbledon champ opened up about how the little one could make an appearance any day now, but Andy is ready to drop everything for the birth.
He is currently in Antwerp, Belgium for the European Open, which starts today, but has admitted he is readying himself to leave the competition at any given moment should he receive the news that his baby is on the way.
Speaking to The Times, he explained, “Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week.
“If the baby came early, I would miss Antwerp and then maybe play at the Paris Masters.”
The sportsman is thought to have opted to take part in the European Open rather than the Stockholm Open, which takes place at the same time, because of the speedier flight home from Belgium compared to Sweden.
Andy, who is also father to daughters Sophia, three, and one-year-old Edie, recently confessed that he would be happy for his children to follow in his footsteps of tennis success but would rather them pursue a career full of passion, saying, “I think the more important thing for me is helping them find something to do that they both really love. I’ve been lucky in my life in finding a passion and being able to live that dream every day of my life.”
Speaking to Hello! magazine, he continued to explain how he is just as in love with his sport as when he first began, saying, “I still get as much out of playing tennis matches today as when I started out, and having a break for the surgery has made me realise just how much I love the game.
“If my girls find their passion and are able to live their lives fulfilling that passion, then that would make me happy.”
