Tennis Star Andy Murray & Wife Kim Welcome Second Child!

Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears have welcomed their second child – a baby girl!

The 30-year-old British tennis pro and his wife welcomed the new child a “couple of weeks ago,” according to the BBC.

Andy‘s grandmother, Shirley Erskine, reportedly told the publication that “all the family is delighted.”

Shirley was asked the baby’s name and replied, “We’ll find out this weekend. I don’t really know much at the moment because we haven’t seen her. But we’re looking forward to having a little cuddle and a little play with Sophia, who is running about all over the place and chattering.”

Andy and Kim are also parents to 21-month-old daughter Sophia.

Andy Murray Stands Up For Women in Sports: 'We Still Have So Many Issues'

Andy Murray has been vocal about being a feminist in the past but now he’s asking why more men aren’t feminists too!

The 30-year-old tennis pro opened up about women in sports and how he believes that more men should be supporting female athletes.

“I just don’t get is why it wouldn’t be something that tennis players are proud of, like, to be the only sport [where the men's and women's game and earnings] are even comparable. That’s positive. We still have so many issues, but it’s something that tennis players should celebrate,” Andy told Elle.

Some of the issues he’s seen include the criticism he faced for having a female coach in the past.

Andy added, “Some argue, ‘Oh, well, she’s a woman, so she can’t understand the men’s game.’ But then how can a man understand the women’s game? I obviously grew up getting coached by my mum, so I didn’t see any issue. But even I – when I came on the professional tour, there were no men coached by women, so looking for a coach, you assume you’re looking for a man, but when you get older you realize…well, no, it doesn’t have to be that way.”

While Andy says there are still issues to be fixed in the divide between men and women’s sports, we’re so glad he’s speaking out about the topic!

Serena Williams Praises Andy Murray for Calling Out Sexism

Serena Williams is speaking out to praise her friend Andy Murray after he called out a reporter’s sexist comment during a Wimbledon press conference.

Andy was asked about being defeated by American player Sam Querrey, who became the first male American to reach the semi-finals of a grand slam tournament since 2009. When the reporter said Sam was the “first American” to reach the point since 2009, Andy chimed in the specify “male player.”

Serena has won 12 grand slam tournaments since 2009 and other female players, including her sister Venus, have reached the semi-finals.

“I don’t think there’s a woman player, and there shouldn’t be a female athlete that is not totally supportive of Andy Murray,” Serena said on ESPN’s The Six. “He has spoken up for women’s issues and women’s rights, especially in tennis, for forever. And he does it again, you know! That’s who he is and one thing we love about him. He has such a wonderful mother who has been such a strong figure in his life and he’s done so much for us on our tour. We love Andy Murray.”
