Judy Murray 'looking forward to being a granny'

It's only been a few days since Andy Murray and Kim Sears married, but the tennis champion's mother Judy already has babies on the brain. Judy, 55, revealed that she is ready to become a grandmother – despite not knowing when her son and his new wife will start a family.

"I'm really looking forward to being a granny," Judy told Closer magazine. "I've always wanted to have grandchildren, but I had to be patient and let them get married first."

Andy and Kim, who tied the knot on Saturday in the groom's native Scotland, met at the US Open when they were 17. The couple went public with their romance a year later, and announced their engagement in November 2014.

Tennis coach Judy added that when Andy, 27, does have children, she will want to teach them the sport from a young age, just like she did with her Wimbledon champion son and his older brother Jamie, also a tennis star.

Judy herself picked up tennis while growing up in Scotland. The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant said that because there were no indoor courts near her, she took to playing tennis in the summer and badminton in the winter.

"It was lovely, just lovely," said Judy of her son Andy Murray's wedding to Kim Sears

Speaking more in depth about Andy and Kim's big day, Judy, who admitted she felt prouder about her son's wedding than his 2013 Wimbledon win, said: "It was the perfect day from start to finish, even despite the hailstones and the snowstorms that we had during the course of the morning. It was lovely, just lovely."

She added to the BBC: "They've been together for a long time so to see them getting married with all their friends and family around them, and in Dunblane, for me that was very, very special to be able to share it with the people in Dunblane who give so much love and support all the time for him.

"They made such a huge effort and so many of them turned out in not great weather and were there for hours."

Ahead of his big day, Andy admitted that he wasn't nervous about getting married, given that he and Kim have been together for nearly ten years, and have lived together for the past six or seven.

"I don't think a whole lot's going to change," he told BBC Sport. "I kind of feel like we have been married already in terms of the way we spend our lives together and live together. I think I will be more nervous about starting a family because that would be more life-changing, in a good way."
