Maria Sharapova and fiancé Alexander Gilkes are expecting their first child together.
The five-time Grand Slam winner made the announcement on Instagram on her 35th birthday.
Sharing her photo from the beach, the five-time Grand Slam winner wrote: “Lovely beginnings! Eating birthday cake for two has always been my specialty.”
Maria got engaged to British millionaire Gilkes in December 2020.
Gilkes is known as New York’s most connected Brit, whose ex-wife is also a friend of Meghan Markle.
Gilkes is reportedly understood to have befriended Prince William when they were both at Eton and is also said to be close to Prince Harry, who also went to the same school.
He was also invited to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Reports also claimed that the couple was expected to attend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding in 2018.
