Inactive German WTA player Carina Witthoeft is expecting her first child and she’s currently 17 weeks pregnant.
The former WTA No.48 Witthoeft announced the news on Instagram by showing her pregnancy belly as well as an ultrasound photo. The 28-year-old wrote: “My heart is full of love, my belly too. Our little Lion is on the way.”
The baby daddy is Witthoeft’s long-term partner whose Instagram handle is spencer_werner. We don’t know much about him, except that he loves surfing, travel, adventure and sports. They have been together for several years, as their first photo together on Carina’s Instagram profile dates back to July 2020.
Once a successful German player, Carina hasn’t competed since the Australian Open qualifying in 2019. In February that year she explained:
“I had to fight with injuries last year and this year at the Australian Open, so I was far from my best. It’s pretty hard to accept if your body doesn’t allow you to play as you are used to. After this year’s Australian Open, I decided to take a break from tournaments until I feel physically and mentally 100% ready to compete again. I hope you can understand that.”
