Love match: Nadal's gorgeous family news

Mens tennis’ legend Rafael Nadal and his wife Xisca Perello are expecting their first child together.

The news after Nadal’s 14th French Open victory, taking him two clear of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic with 22 Grand Slams.

The couple have yet to formally announce the news. Xisca was spotted wearing loose fitting clothing during the Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Speculation grew and reached a pinnacle after appearing to be sporting a baby bump on a yacht as the couple enjoyed a holiday.

This sent social media into a frenzy, following Nadal’s French Open victory after a tender photo of the two after the win melted hearts.

Xisca and Rafa were together for 14 years before marrying in 2019 and have kept their relationship private. Xisca also runs the Rafael Nadal Foundation.
