The 30-year-old tennis player, who is now ranked number one in the world, confirmed the news as he prepares for the Wimbledon tournament this week.

Andy Murray is the defending champion at Wimbledon. However, he remained adamant that he could easily make it through two weeks of the grass-court Grand Slam.

But on Sunday he dismissed fears he may have to pull out, saying: "I'll be fine to play the event and play seven matches".

He said: "I'm determined to get a Centre Court ticket, with it being Murray that will just be the cherry on the cake". It's just been very sore the last few weeks and was giving me quite a lot of trouble, moving to certain shots and getting to certain positions.

Andy Murray has confirmed that he and his wife Kim Sears are expecting their second child together!

"We made the decision last Tuesday that, after I hit for a little bit in the morning, I needed to take a few days break if I was going to give myself the best chance to be ready".

"We found out a while ago, but I'm not interested in discussing the dates of that in here", Murray said after being asked when he found out the news.

"I've had hip problems since I was very young, so it's not something new to me", Murray told reporters.

This is an extremely important tournament, so you do worry a little bit about what could happen.

In both his previous Wimbledon wins he'd won at Queen's in preparation, indeed when he won at the All England Club for the first time, it was his 18th straight victory on grass. "I've felt fairly calm the last few days, considering the problems I've had".

Sir Andy Murray is an extreme perspective tennis player, for him, it will be rather hard to build a schedule now.

"I want to make sure I make the most of all of these chances that I have left, including this year".

The pair already have a one-year-old daughter, Sophia, following their marriage in 2015.

He said knowing he is due to become a father again wouldn't provide extra inspiration as he chases a third Wimbledon title and fourth Grand Slam crown.

This year, Wimbledon will be totally different to Andy Murray, his wife Kim is expecting the second child.

"I haven't been in that sort of position too often, only a few days before a slam, and not felt good at all", he said.
