Novak Djokovic has taken to Twitter to announce that he is the proud father of a baby boy.

The tennis star posted an update on the social network early on Wednesday morning and revealed that the baby is called Stefan.

“Stefan, our baby angel was born!” Djokovic posted on Twitter.

“I’m so proud of my beautiful wife Jelena! Thank you so much for your love and support. We love you all!!!”

Djokovic and wife Jelena have been together for more than eight years and married four days after he won his second Wimbledon title in July.

The 27-year-old had announced the pregnancy through social media back in April, writing on Facebook: “My dear friends, You’ve been with me through many tough and good times in my career.

“I’ve been blessed to travel the world, play the most beautiful sport that brings me a lot of excitement and joy; I am happy, loved and healthy. Jelena and I are truly blessed to soon become parents! My love is pregnant!”
