The wife of tennis player Andy Murray has given birth to a baby girl. The couple, who got married in Murray's hometown of Dunblane last April, announced the pregnancy in the summer. A formal announcement is expected from the tennis player and his wife Kim Sears.
Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon has tweeted her congratulations to the Scottish star.

Last month, Britain's number one tennis player said he'd leave the Australian Open if Kim went into Labour early. Andy's next tournament is the French Open in May.
