Djokovic Welcomes Birth Of Second Child

Serbian celebrates birth of daughter Tara

Novak Djokovic and wife Jelena welcomed the birth of their second child, a healthy baby girl named Tara. The former World No. 1 announced the news on Saturday morning on his social media channels.

In October 2014, Djokovic welcomed his first child, a son named Stefan.

Djokovic posted the following message on Facebook:

Very happy and proud to welcome our little girl Tara to our home. Jelena and I have been hand in hand on this journey and as a man, I have to send my love and admiration to every single women out there for going through so much pain and effort to create life, to bring life and raise a human being... what a blessing to have an opportunity to be a parent! Thank you for celebrating the birth of my daughter and sending my family all the love and best wishes in the past few days. On behalf of me and Jelena, I want to say thank you! We are back from hospital, Jelena and Tara are my angels, and Stefan is a proud big brother who wants to take part in baby chores. Life is divine!

Djokovic is expected to return to the ATP World Tour in 2018 after shutting down his 2017 season in July due to an elbow injury.
