The WTA community has a new member — Australian Samantha Stosur and her partner Liz announced the birth of their first child, a daughter named Genevieve. The 2011 US Open champion shared the happy news on Instagram, showing us two photos of her lovely family of three.
Even though Stosur, a former singles world No.4 and doubles world No.1, broke the news on Monday, she’s been a mom for a month already, as her partner gave birth to the baby girl in mid-June:
Life in lockdown during coronavirus has been challenging in many ways but personally it’s been one of the most exciting and happy times of my life. On the 16th of June, my partner Liz gave birth to our beautiful little girl, Genevieve. It has been a whirlwind time but we could not imagine life without her now.
Mum and Evie are doing well and it’s so amazing to be home with them both. We are absolutely in love with this little bundle and rolling with the happy chaos. We can’t wait for what’s to come and to watch little Evie grow up….Although not too quickly we hope!
Among the first colleagues to congratulate the 36-year-old Stosur on Instagram were Casey Dellacqua and Kim Clijters, both moms of three children.
