Tennis champion Andy Murray returned to SW19 on Tuesday, one decade after his momentous Wimbledon win broke the 77-year singles championship drought for British male players. 

Off court, the Scottish sportsman is a self-confessed family man, and his wife Kim Sears is always spotted courtside cheering on her husband amongst Wimbledon's most prestigious guests.When he's not battling it out on Center Court, Andy can be found playing tennis on the grounds of his newly-built family home in Leatherhead, which he and Kim share their four young children – Sophia, Edie, Teddy, and little Lola, who was born in March 2021.   

The unseeded tennis player moved into the bespoke property after selling his £5 million, five-bedroom Surrey mansionwhich was complete with a swimming pool, massage room, gym and tennis court.

Their romance developed quickly but the couple managed to keep it under wraps as they spent time getting to know each other.

Kim was hurtled into the limelight a year later when hopeless romantic Andy won his first ever tournament in San Jose, California and rushed through the crowds to give his stunning new girlfriend a kiss.

She was a teenager still at school at the time. "I went away with him thinking it's fine because he's never going to win so I'll be back in time for school on Monday and then he did!" she later recalled.

"I remember saying to my mum, you've got to call in and tell them I've got the winter vomiting virus and I won't be in, but then it was on the front cover of the paper so I was busted," she said. We're not swooning, you are.

When did Andy Murray get married?

The couple tied the knot on 11 April 2015, and Kim was every inch the blushing bride as she stepped out in a bespoke Swarovski crystal-encrusted gown by Jenny Packham to marry her tennis champion.

Kim, who was 27 at the time, arrived at Dunblane Cathedral in a sleek silver vintage car, prompted by loud cheers as she debuted her ivory dress fit for a Queen, which featured a full skirt, elbow-length sleeves and an open V-shaped back.

Seven years on from their wedding, the happy couple still prefers to keep their personal lives private from their fans, but that doesn't stop doting husband Andy from posting the odd photo of his beautiful wife on Instagram.

The former World No. 1 once referred to his partner as one of his "three favourites" when he shared an adorable photo of Kim and their two border terriers, Maggie May and Rusty!

Does Andy Murray have children?

The Wimbledon champion shares four children with his wife Kim – Sophia, seven, Edie, five, three-year-old son Teddie and Lola, who was born in March 2021.

"Seeing the kids sitting at the table, behaving and eating their food and going to bed at the right time, those sort of things make me proud," the star admitted, as per The Mirror.

Andy, 34, further revealed that five-year-old Sophia is already showing an interest in sports. "My eldest daughter plays tennis once a week and if she wanted to I'd be happy – but at their ages, it's important to be doing stuff with their friends."

When did Andy Murray have a fourth child?

The doting dad became a father-of-four during lockdown, when it was revealed that Kim had secretly given birth after an extremely private pregnancy. The tennis star initially declined to reveal whether they had had a boy or a girl, but it was later uncovered the couple had welcomed a daughter.

Sharing a rare insight into his family life during lockdown, Andy told The Times in 2020: "At the time coronavirus started I was rehabbing, and I was actually fine missing tennis because everybody else was missing it as well. I just got to spend lots of time with my family at home."
