Congratulations are in order for Sir Andy Murray and his wife Kim, who have welcomed their third child together.

The baby, who has been described by grandmother Judy Murray as a "lovely, happy, healthy baby boy", was born last week in London.

Andy and Kim, married in the tennis star's hometown of Dunblane back in 2015.

They are already parents to daughters, Sophia, who was born in 2016, and Edie, born in 2017.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Judy said: "It's lovely news. It's lovely to have a little boy to go with the two little girls."

She added that the baby was born "a few days ago", saying: "I'll leave it to Andy and Kim to fill in all the details."

Murray won his first singles title for over two years, since undergoing career-saving hip surgery, by beating Stan Wawrinka at the European Open in October.

After the tournament, he said: "I'll have three kids under four years old. When I've been off the tour my family has got bigger so I need to get back on the road so we don't get out of control!

"I'm excited for the third kid. My wife's been a huge support for getting me back on the court and making me fight to keep playing."
