Retired Czech tennis player Lucie Safarova and her husband Tomas Plekanec welcomed their second child, a boy named Oliver.
The former doubles world No.1 announced the news on Instagram, sharing a photo of the newborn in the hands of all his family members, as well as a photo of the little guy with his older sister Lea who will turn three in December.
The 35-year-old Safarova had revealed her second pregnancy in late December, showing her baby bump while posing next to a Christmas tree. Four and a half months later, the WTA star is announcing the happy news: “Little brother is here! We are excited to welcome you to our family Oliver! Thank you to my hometown hospital for amazing care!”

The five-time Grand Slam doubles champion Safarova quit tennis after the 2019 French Open, where she played doubles alongside Dominika Cibulkova.
