The postbox in Dunblane, Scotland, which was painted gold in honor of tennis legend Andy Murray’s victory at the London Olympics, was decorated with pink ribbons over the weekend.
This was to announce and celebrate the birth of Murray and wife Kim Sears’ first child, a healthy baby girl, born on Sunday. Dunblane is Murray’s hometown and was also the venue of his wedding last April.
Murray was the runner-up at the Australian Open in January, losing the final match to Serbia’s Novak Djokovic. He had said at the time that his family now took priority over everything else. He said he would have cut short his first Grand Slam of the year and flown home if the baby arrived early. Fortunately, she decided to delay her arrival so that her daddy would be home in time for the big day.
Andy Murray is currently world No. 2 in the ATP rankings, looking to take on Djokovic at the French Open in May, later this year.
