Tennis star Andy Murray’s wife Kim Sears has given birth to a girl, who arrived on Sunday morning.
The couple were married in Murray’s home town of Dunblane last April and announced the pregnancy in the summer.
Shirley Erskine, Andy Murray’s grandmother said she was delighted at her great granddaughter’s arrival.
Confirming the news, the tennis star’s agent said: “Andy and Kim had a daughter in the early hours of Sunday morning and the family are doing well.”
In the run-up to last month’s Australian Open, Murray, said his family would be a “priority”.
The world number two made it clear that he would have cut short his first grand slam of the year and flown home if the baby had arrived earlier than expected.
He said: “My child is more important to me, and my wife is more important to me, than a tennis match.
“It’s a big change for me and my wife, but that’s the current priority and I’ll see after that.
“I have no idea how that will change things. I still love tennis.”
