Andy and Kim’s vital stats:
Andy Murray, born 15 May 1987
Kim Sears, born 10 December 1987
Andy and Kim’s children:
Sophia Olivia, born February 2016
Edie, born November 2017
The press and some fans wondered if Kim might be pregnant again – with her 3rd child – during the 2019 Wimbledon tournament but, in the absence of an announcement from the couple themselves, we’re not going to speculate.
How did Andy and Kim meet?
The couple met at a US Open party in 2005, when Kim was travelling with her dad Nigel, who was head of the women’s section of the Lawn Tennis Association. Kim was still at school and Andy was 17: he was her first serious boyfriend.
Kim’s 1st pregnancy
Kim and Andy got married in Dunblane on 11 April 2015 and had Sophia the following February.
Andy’s mum, Judy, shared her own ‘announcement’ of the birth – with this picture of Dunblane’s golden postbox (it was painted gold in honour of Andy’s Olympic gold medal), covered in pink ribbons, and a caption “Dunblane baby love…xxx.”
Kim’s 2nd pregnancy
Baby number 2, Edie, came along in 2017. The couple waited 10 months before revealing her name. After her birth, Andy flew to Australia for the first of the hip operations he’s had.
He was determined to keep playing sport, telling OK! magazine that Kim and his daughters were the reason he wanted to stay in the sport:
“That’s one of the things that’s motivated me to keep playing,” he said.
“It would be cool if she can come along and watch me hit some balls or practise just to see what it is I do.”
Why the rumours in the press about a 3rd baby?
As we’ve mentioned, the tabloid press wondered if a 3rd baby is on the way for the couple during Wimbledon 2019 when Kim was spotted wearing what looked to be a maternity top – but there has been no word on this from the couple themselves on this. We’ll keep you updated if we hear any news.
