Congratulations are definitely in order for these two...

Today marks the start of Wimbledon, with this year's tournament set to be an unforgettable two weeks. With reigning women's champ Serena Williams skipping the tournament due to her pregnancy, everyone from Johanna Konta to Heather Watson is gearing up to steal her crown.

In the men's singles however, the most popular Wimbledon hopeful is defending champion Andy Murray, who just started his 2017 Wimbledon journey in the most unlikely way.

Just yesterday, the two-time Wimbledon winner and world no.1 announced that he and his wife, Kim Sears, are expecting their second child together.

The couple who are already parents to 17-month-old daughter Sophia haven't given any details about their future arrival other than that they can't wait. When asked if another baby could be added stress, Andy rubbished the idea, insisting, 'We're both obviously very happy and looking forward to it.'

However, according to the Wimbledon champion, the good news won't be a distraction, with the 30-year-old coming back with force to defend his title.

When asked whether he would be able to focus on the game, Andy replied: 'Well, I mean, I’ve had family the whole time I’ve been playing tennis so yeah, I’ll be fine dealing with that.'

He continued: 'It's certainly not a distraction in the slightest.'

Congratulations to Andy and Kim!
