Roger Federer Becomes Father Of Twins
World's top tennis player Roger Federer and wife Mirka have become proud parents of twin girls on Thursday night.
Federer called it the best day of his life.
In a statement released on his personal website he announced the girls had been named Charlene Riva and Myla Rose.
"I have some exciting news to share with you," Federer said on his Facebook page.
"Late last night, in Switzerland, Mirka and I became proud parents of twin girls."
"This is the greatest day of our lives. Mirka, Myla and Charlene are all healthy and doing very well."
It was the first children of the couple who got married in April.
The 27-year-old Federer, who clinched his 15th Grand Slam in Wimbledon to break Pete Sampras' record, met his wife at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000.
Mirka, 31, immigrated with her family to Switzerland from Slovakia when she was two. After playing on the WTA Tour, she retired prematurely due to injury and became one of Federer's managers.
