Former tennis star Maria Sharapova became a mother

The former professional athlete has given birth to her first child. Maria Sharapova shares a photo with her fiancé and the baby – and reveals the name.

She achieved almost everything in tennis: Maria Sharapova was the world number one and one of the few professionals to have won all four Grand Slam tournaments. And the 35-year-old is also on the path to success in her private life.

A few months after retiring in early 2020, Maria Sharapova announced that she was engaged to British businessman Alexander Gilkes. In April this year, she then shared the happy news that she was expecting a child from him.

“The most beautiful, stimulating and rewarding gift”

Now the baby has been born, as the former tennis player announced on Instagram. On the social media platform, she shared a first family photo with her approximately 4.5 million followers. She and her fiancé gaze lovingly at the newborn.
