German tennis star Angelique Kerber has announced the birth of her first child, a daughter named Liana. The 35-year-old, who has won three Grand Slam titles, shared the news on her Instagram account on Tuesday, just three days after the baby was born on February 25th.
Kerber had taken a break from tennis last year to prepare for the arrival of her child. During her time away from the sport, she kept busy with other projects, including writing a book that was published last year. She spent the final months of her pregnancy out of the public eye, and has now confirmed the birth of her daughter with partner Franco Bianco.

Kerber captioned the post with a heartfelt message, “Welcome to our family, Liana *25.02.2023 ❤️🍼💫Having you with us is the most beautiful & overwhelming feeling we could have ever imagined.”
