Rafael Nadal and Mery “Xisca” Perelló are expecting their first child!
The tennis star has confirmed the news in the midst of a press conference in Palma de Mallorca where he shared that he intends to play at both Wimbledon and the US Open this year.
“If things go well, I’m going to be a father!” he told reporters.
He added that he’d kept the news private because he doesn’t usually like to discuss his personal business. “I’m already exposed enough in my professional life,” he explained.
“My loved ones and I like to live with a low profile.”
Rafa and Xisca have been together since the early 2000s and tied the knot in 2019.
