Nadal welcomed a baby
Rafael Nadal and his wife Mery Perelló welcomed their first child on Saturday! Rafa and Xisca welcome their first child, a baby boy, at their home in Palma de Mallorca.
Rafa and Mery have been married for three years and have been together since they were teenagers. Nadal has consistently stated that he would like to have children, and now, at 36, he will take on the new role of father.
Novak Djokovic sent Nadal a message after hearing the news. «Congratulations! I didn’t know that. Really? This is wonderful news. I wish your wife and baby lots of health and happiness. As a parent, I’m not going to give you any advice (smiling).
He has a big family. I’m sure he will experience himself (smiling),» Djokovic said after advancing to the Astana Open final. Andy Murray appeared on Spanish sports radio show El Larguero and was asked about Rafael Nadal as a father.
Murray, who is also married and a father of four, knows all too well how it feels to be a father and a professional tennis player at the same time. «I think he (Rafael Nadal) and his partner had his first child a few days ago, so it will be interesting to see if that increases the motivation levels or reduces the amount of competition he has now, I don’t know. «. Murray said, according to Sportskeeda.
While having fun with the family, Nadal is also back on the practice court, working on his game and hoping to get back to 100% for Paris and Turin.
