Roger Federer becomes a dad

Tennis champ and wife welcome twin girls

Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is now a father of two, after his wife Mirka gave birth to twin girls.


The babies were born in Switzerland on Thursday night. New dad Roger said the twin girls have been named Charlene Riva and Myla Rose.

“This is the greatest day of our lives. Mirka, Myla and Charlene are all healthy and doing well,” said Roger Federer.


Roger and Mirka have been together nine years – but didn’t marry until April. Mirka’s pregnancy was announced in March, but they didn’t say they were expecting twins, or even the sex. The twins are the couple’s first children.
