Love no longer means zero to tennis pro Andy Murray! The Scottish star, 28, welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with his wife, Kim Sears, on Sunday, February 7. Murray’s grandmother, Shirley Erskine, was the first to break the news via BBC Scotland.
“I am absolutely delighted, as you can imagine,” she said. “It seems a long time that we've been waiting for this, but all's well now, as far as I know. I don't have any details. I just know that I've got a great-granddaugher, so that is just lovely.”
On Tuesday, February 9, Murray’s mother, Judy Murray, confirmed the news, tweeting a photo of the mailbox that was previously painted gold in honor of Andy’s win for Britain in the London Olympics. Around the golden box were two giant pink ribbons.
“Dunblane baby love……..xxx,” the new grandmother captioned the pic.

Andy’s agent also spoke with the BBC, saying, "Andy and Kim had a daughter in the early hours of Sunday morning, and the family are doing well."
The athlete and Sears, 28, wed in Dunblane, Scotland, in April 2015 at the Dunblane Cathedral. The No. 2 tennis pro in the world played in the Australian Open last month. He lost, but his family was glad just to have it over.
“All I could think of after Andy had finished playing his final [in the Australian Open] was, 'Oh good, at least he'll get home now,’” Erskine told the BBC.
