Roger Federer welcomed another pair of twins into the world on Tuesday after his wife Mirka gave birth to sons Leo and Lenny.
The Swiss star, who had pulled of out the Madrid Open ahead of the impending birth, announced his happy news on Twitter.
Federer took to Twitter, writing, “Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening!”
Roger Federer and Mirka became parents to twin girls Charlene Riva and Myla Rose in July 2009.
The 32-year-old revealed on Twitter on Christmas Eve that they were expanding their family in 2014, but did not reveal her due date or the fact they were having another set of twins.
Roger had no problems pulling out of the tournament, announcing on Facebook previously, “I’ve decided to withdraw from Madrid to be with my wife Mirka during these next few exciting weeks for our family. I apologize to my fans and hope to be back in Madrid next year. I’ll be training near my home, and am excited to rejoin the Tour soon!”
It appears Federer may be able to make the first grand slam now, but will probably miss Rome Masters next week.
