Showing a profile photo which clearly shows a substantial baby bump, the 30-year-old Konta said: “Busy baking my own little muffin right now.”

Dominika Cibulkova, Donna Vekic, Shelby Rogers, Heather Watson, Belinda Bencic, Caroline Wozniacki, and many other active and retired WTA players were quick to congratulate Konta. Naomi Brody’s comment was: “The best muffin you ever did make.”

Konta’s husband is her long-time partner Jackson Wade, two years her junior. According to our records, they’ve been together for about five years. They tied the knot on December 11, 2021.

The three-time Grand Slam semifinalist Konta ended her tennis career on December 1, 2021, less than two weeks before the wedding, saying that the word “grateful” best describes her days spent on tour.
