According to the magazine “Holà!”, confirmed by the Spanish newspaper “El Mundo”, Rafael Nadal and Xisca Maria Perello will soon be parents. The 33-year-old is expecting her first child with the most successful grand slam man in tennis history

For several weeks it was only a rumor. From now on, Holà! can confirm it: Rafael Nadal and his wife Maria Francisca Perello are expecting their first child. Discreet during Roland Garros, his wife regularly wore “comfortable” clothes, which stirred discussions around the arrival of a child for the couple, who have been in a relationship since high school.

Already during confinement, a live on social networks between Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal had already created a surprise. The British player had complained about his children waking up at six in the morning. The Majorcan replied: “I hope to be in your situation in a short time”…

For years, Rafael Nadal repeated that he wanted to have children when he would stop his tennis career. After creating the feat in January in Australia, then confirming his leadership in 2022 at Roland Garros, the player seems to have changed his plans. If he will have waited until he is 36 to have his first child, this is not the case for Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, his historical rivals. The Swiss got married in 2009 and had twins the same year. In 2014, he will once again have twins, with his wife Mirka Federer. For the Serb, he had a boy, Stefan in 2014 and a girl, Tara in 2017. Children he had with his girlfriend Jelena Djokovic.

Two weeks before the start of the Wimbledon tournament for which he is preparing at home in Mallorca on grass, the news should be quickly made official by the couple, married since October 2019.
