Sir Andy Murray and wife Kim Sears are celebrating as they welcomed their son into the world.
The two-time Wimbledon champion and his wife now have three children – daughters Sopia, 3, and Edie, 2, as well as their baby son, whose name has yet to be decided.
The baby is understood to have been born at a hospital in London, near the family home.
In an interview with the Scottish Sun, Sir Andy’s grandfather Roy Erskine said: “It’s a wee boy.
“He was born during the week, I don’t know what his name is yet. My wife is away down, she went down this morning.”
Naturally, one of the first things people will wonder about the baby is whether he will follow in his father’s footsteps and get into tennis.

Well, the bookies are certainly thinking that way and you can get odds of 500/1 for him to win Wimbledon.
The Daily Record reports that William Hill are offering odds of 500-1 that Sir Andy’s son will follow in his footsteps and claim the Wimbledon men’s crown one day.
Coral’s David Stevens said: “Andy Murray was the toast of British tennis fans when ending the long wait for a home champion at SW19.
“Plenty will be hoping the family’s new arrival can go on to emulate his dad in the future.
It comes as Sir Andy, who has three Grand Slams to his name, continues his comeback from hip surgery.
He said: “I’ll definitely be taking some time off as we’ll be pretty busy with three children under the age of four.
“I’ll try to be around as much as possible in the next year, but I know my tennis career won’t go on for ever, so there will need to be a balance between me maximising the next few years and spending quality time with my family.
“I’m lucky in that I can train close to home, so that lets me do things like the school run whenever I can.”
