Lederhosen-clad Boris Becker overcomes hip op to attend beer fest

Tuesday September 29, 2009

Not even major surgery was going to stop Oktoberfest regular Boris Becker from celebrating the famous Munich beer festival.

Five days after undergoing a hip operation, the tennis icon donned lederhosen and a velvet waistcoat – as well as grabbing a crutch to help him walk – to attend the event with new wife Lilly.

And though she's no stranger to the festival herself, the Dutch model wasn't supping jugs of beer this year.

At five months pregnant with the couple's first child, 33-year-old Lilly instead stuck to coca cola.

The pretty brunette – who got into the spirit of the event in a traditional alpine hat and shorts – is expecting the baby in the new year. 

Boris already knows the sex of the baby, although Lilly is trying to fight off the urge to ask him before the birth.

"I told him that he should not tell me. But with my luck, I'll end up asking him soon," she says.
