Baby girl for Murrays
ANDY Murray is celebrating becoming a father after his wife Kim Sears gave birth to a girl.
The Dunblane tennis star’s partner is understood to have given birth on Sunday night, the BBC reported.
Andy’s mother Judy appeared to confirm the news in a light-hearted Twitter exchange with Scots stand-up comedian Fred MacAulay.
In a message to Judy, the comedian wrote: “Delighted to hear Andy And Kim Murray’s lovely news. @judmoo...surely a cert for 2016 GlamGran comp at Butlins.” Judy replied: “Love it.” Other well-known names from the worlds of sport and politics have offered the couple – who were married last year – their congratulations.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted: “Lovely news. Congratulations to @andy_murray and Kim on the birth of their daughter. Wishing every happiness.”
Former British Number One tennis star Annabel Croft, paralympic wheelchair tennis player Lucy Shuker, former Olympic champion Sally Gunnell and Olympic skeleton champion Amy Williams were also among those who sent early congratulations to the couple.
