July 24, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Tennis champion Roger Federer has become a father after his wife Mirka, 31, gave birth to twin girls on Thursday.   The 27-year-old Swiss star who has had a lot of great days hailed his children’s birth as the best day of his life.

In a statement released on his Facebook page, Federer gave some details: “I have some exciting news to share with you. Late last night, in Switzerland, Mirka and I became proud parents of twin girls.

“We named them Myla Rose and Charlene Riva and they are both healthy and along with their mother they are doing great.

“This is the best day of our lives.”

The twins are first children born to the couple, who were married in April.

Federer beat Andy Roddick in a brilliant Wimbledon final earlier this month, to gain his 15th grand slam title,  breaking the previous record of 14 held by American tennis ace Pete Sampras.
