It was her grandmother who confirmed reports that Boris Becker's wife is expecting her first child.
And newly-wed Sharlely 'Lilly' Kerssenberg's burgeoning baby bump was on display for all to see in Spain this week.
Fresh from their honeymoon in St Tropez, the couple were spotted on a romantic stroll in sunny Formentera.
"Yes, we're going to be parents. We are really looking forward to our baby," tennis ace Boris told German newspaper Bild, as news broke of their happy news last week.
Boris, 41, and his beautiful bride tied the knot in an intimate Alpine wedding on June 12 this year – as featured in HELLO! – and since then have spent most of their time on an extended holiday.
The new arrival is a fourth child for the Wimbledon champ.
He has two sons, Noah Gabriel, 15, and nine-year-old Elias, from his first marriage to actress and designer Barbara Feltus, which ended in 2001.
He also has a nine-year-old daughter called Anna with Russian model Angela Ermakova.
