Maria Sharapova was once ranked as the best tennis player in the world by the WTA Tour. She and her partner, Alexander Gilkes, now have a baby boy. They wrote about how happy they were with each other on her Instagram.
She is the only Russian who has won all four Grand Slams in her career. She played on the Women’s Tennis Association Tour from 2001 to 2020. Then, for 21 weeks, she was named the best player in the world.
She has also played in the Olympics. In the women’s singles event at the London Olympics in 2012, she won a silver medal. Throughout her career, she has also won five major titles, including two at the French Open and one each at the US, Wimbledon, and Australia Open.
Theodore is the first child of tennis player Maria Sharapova and her partner Alexander Gilkes
Former tennis player Maria and her partner Alexander Gilkes had their first son. They wrote about their baby on social media and gave him the name Theodore. On Friday, the picture of the three of them turned up on the web.
People saw the 35-year-old former athlete and the 42-year-old British businessman holding their baby. The Russian star posted it on her social media with a caption that mentioned his name. She also wrote the most beautiful, difficult, and rewarding present her small family could have asked for.
The five-time Grand Slam winner from Russia told her 35th birthday on April 19 that she was pregnant. She showed a picture of herself on the beach with a baby bump. She wrote, “Eating two pieces of birthday cake.”
Since 2018, they’ve been dating, and they seem to understand each other and connect better than in any of their other relationships.
Plan for Maria Sharapova to marry her baby’s father
In December 2020, British businessman Alexander Gilkes will propose to the Russian tennis player who used to be the best in the world. The Daily Mail said that he was down on one knee with a £300,000 diamond ring.
But Maria said that because of the coronavirus pandemic, they hadn’t talked about their wedding and hadn’t made any plans yet. She also said that they want their family and friends to feel at home and have a good time.
She was already engaged to Sasha Vujai, a professional basketball player from Slovenia. They started dating in 2009, but the tennis player said they were no longer together in 2012.
From 2012 until 2015, she was with a Bulgarian athlete who played the same sport as her. Grigor Dimitrov was with her.
More on Maria Sharapova’s family
Maria was born on April 19, 1987, in Nyagan, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union, to her parents. Her parents, Yuri and Yelena, were both born in Gomel, Byelorussian SSR. But because of how the 1986 Chornobyl nuclear accident affected the area, they had to leave their home before the birth of a future superstar.
Sharapova has never talked about her family until she and her fiance, Alexander Gilkes, decided to start their own. Also, her fans want to see her son, but she hasn’t posted a good picture of him yet.
