Judy Murray said she is looking forward to being an "active granny" with her first grandchild
"I’m really looking forward to the new baby, my first grandchild," she told HELLO! "When it happens I shall be an active granny. My mum Shirley was very involved with Jamie and Andy when they were growing up and I hope to be the same with my grandchild.
"As you get older, you realise that life is short and so I’ve decided that it’s time for me to slow down. I’ve been away so much that I’ve missed out on family occasions and children, such as my 13-year-old nieces Elsa and Cora, growing up, and I'm actually looking forward to cutting back on my work and spending more time with my parents, and yes, the new baby."
And Judy says she has no plans to teach tennis skills to the new arrival. "Children can start playing tennis with mini racquets from age of three," she said. "But I don’t think I could go through all that nurturing of talent again. It takes years of dedication and sacrifice, and now I just want to enjoy time with my family."
