Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick have just welcomed their new baby into the world. The actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy on September 30, as confirmed by Us Weekly. This is the couple’s first child together. Their son was born in Austin, Texas, but no other details have been revealed just yet.
Decker has been keeping everyone updated on her growing baby bump ever since her pregnancy was announced on May 2, via a cute Instagram photo. The adorable picture showed the actress and supermodel cradling her belly while she posed in a long black flowery dress. She wrote, “So this happened … #the3ofus.” It was a perfect way to share the news with the world.
Retired tennis pro Andy Roddick, who has been married to Brooklyn since 2009, has been excited to meet this little one. The new mom said that she loves kids and wanted to start a family with Andy, but wanted to find the right time. It looks like they did indeed decide that this year would be the right time for them to have their first child.
What looks to be one of her last baby bump photos taken before she gave birth, the new mom looks really happy and healthy and also anxious to meet the baby she has carried around for nine long months. She is in great shape and looks like she hasn’t put on any weight except for her well-rounded tummy.
“My butt has just folded itself into my belly. And my boobs are officially resting on my gut. We’re in the homestretch, y’all. Photo courtesy of my sort-of-tv-step-brother @barvonblaq @graceandfrankie.”
Brooklyn Decker is a former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model who changed her career path to become a well-known actress. She is currently starring in Grace and Frankie, which has just renewed on Netflix for Season 2.
Roddick is a former world number one tennis player who retired from the sport back in 2012. The 2003 U.S. Open champ has been keeping his focus on his Andy Roddick Foundation since then, which focuses on education for young people outside of the classroom. He has also continued his tennis talents by competing in the PowerShares series featuring other tennis greats such as Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, and Andre Agassi. Now it looks like his time will be well-spent with his baby boy, changing diapers and midnight rocking sessions.
According to a recent post by Page Six, Roddick confessed just last month that he was anxious to become a dad. He talked about his pregnant wife and how cool the whole pregnancy has been these past few months.
“She’s doing great. I think it becomes more real by the day. It’s something that’s been done a million times before. . . but to feel the baby moving around. . . it kind of just blows your mind. . . and now we’re at the point where we just want it to be here.”
Congratulation tweets have been coming in for the proud parents. Tennis great Chris Evert sent out a special message for them, saying, “Congrats to @AndyRoddick and @BrooklynDecker! Welcome to the club!!! #rewarding #privileged #challenging.”
Decker had previously stated that she is looking forward to having a family, and also that she and Andy may just end up adopting a child as well. According to a 2012 report by People, she told Flare Magazine that it was a good possibility in their future.
“I want to adopt a child or a baby with an intellectual disability one day. I mean, that’s in the distant future, but that’s always been a goal of mine.”
As for now, these two will be getting used to being a family of three and enjoying every minute with their son. More details of their new baby boy should emerge soon.
