Three-time Grand Slam tournament winner Ash Barty and husband Garry Kissick have shared an adorable image of their first son together.
Barty, 27, warmed the nation’s hearts when she revealed she was pregnant with her first child via Instagram in January, one year after sensationally quitting tennis.
In their latest post, the two new parents gushed over their beautiful son as they welcomed Hayden to the world on Tuesday night.
Fans were quick to react to the joyful news, sending heartfelt messages and even cheekily predicting their little boy could be a future tennis star himself.
“Future Wimbledon champ? Congratulations” said the Wimbledon account cheekily.
The Australian Open, which Barty won in 2022 before retiring, called it “The greatest triumph” as they sent their congratulations.
“Well how ‘bout that for a Number #1 ! Congrats to you both,” Seven’s Morning Show host Kylie Gillies said.
“Congrats Ashhhhh! Amazing news! He’s so gorgeous! He’s so lucky to have you guys as parents,” wrote comedian Tanya Hennessy.
The Queenslander married her husband in July 2022, six years after meeting him at a Brookwater Gold and Country club in her home state.
