Michaella Krajicek welcomed her first child on August 7, a baby boy named Valentijn Leo Sels. The retired Dutch tennis player shared the news on Instagram, posting a picture of the lucky parents holding their newborn’s hands.
The 2007 Wimbledon quarterfinalist threw a gender reveal party in early March and informed the world that the expected delivery date was July 31. The baby arrived a little bit later, so the mama had an additional week to get spoiled by good food, as she mentioned in one of her recent Instagram posts.
The baby father is Jelle Sels, whom Michaella has been dating for a few years now. He is also a professional tennis player representing the Netherlands, currently ranked No.308 in singles on the ATP Tour.
The 32-year-old Michaella kept us updated throughout her pregnancy and even shared some stunning pregnancy photos in lingerie.
Wishing all the happiness to the new mom and dad! My friend who creates wonderful prewalking baby shoes has made a custom pair for Michaella’s boy. The shoes are on their way. I am glad that I have something to treat the new tennis mama with and also give a shout-out to my talented friend and her top-quality Colorada brand.
