Rafael Nadal Is Going To Be A Dad

According to Spanish magazine Hola!, Rafael Nadal and Maria Francisca Perello are expecting their first child. The exclusive pictures leave no room for doubt. His wife Mery reveals her new maternity silhouette in a swimsuit.

The alarms went off at the Roland Garros tournament, where Rafa was able to win his 14th French Open title and 22nd Grand Slam. Even though Rafa made history, all eyes were on his wife, Mery, and her ‘suspicious’ change of style. She was wearing comfortable and loose looks, such as the wide lingerie cut dress that she wore in the stands during the final.

The tennis champion has previously opened up about his plans to start a family, revealing to Hola! in March 2018 that “obviously, I intend and want to form a family,” he said. “I love children and I would like them to do what they want in life.’”

The Spanish couple have yet to publicly confirm the pregnancy news.

  1. “CHEERFUL NEWS” SO Happy for the “Three” of you. Congratulations 🎊 from ALMIGHTY GOD and me

  2. Congratulations Rafael Nayadal 🎊
    I am sure your little one will be a born Champion 🏆

  3. Wonderful news for the two!!! A little sad for me though. Rafa always said beginning a family would come when he’s close to retirement!!! Fingers crossed he’ll thrill us with his play a few more times!!

    • Congrats Rafael on baby news! I agree with the previous comment, I hope you continue to give us one more season/year of great tennis. You’re a great champion. Thanks for the entertainment! You’ve always been my favorite male tennis player!

  4. The Spanish press are reporting that Mery is 5 months along and the baby is a boy … which makes no sense, because she didn’t go with him to Australia so she can’t possibly be 5 months along. Maybe 4 months? That would mean Rafa junior arriving in November 🙂 .

  5. Naughty naughty Rafa! What happened to the family planning? Couldn’t keep your hands off wifey that’s what! Hahaha congratulations champ! Baby will be beautiful and you will be an amazing daddy. God bless you and your family.

  6. Parabéns Maria e Rafael um filho é um benção de Deus é a formação de uma família abençoada q o senhor te proteja na sua gestação e o bebê com muita saúde e alegria pra todos vcs sinta-se abraçados
    .sua fã amos vcs.

  7. Rafa truly does love children. He is always so tender to the ball kids and the kid that walks out with him / takes net photo with him. Praying for a healthy child if Mery is indeed pregnant. And I suppose being so famous has its cost (paparazzi) but still… just leave them alone for a little bit!

    • I’m sooooooo Happy for the Beautiful couple, the Best news I’ve heard this yr. so far, Gemini’s are the Best I’m one too ❤️

  8. What wonderful news congratulations Maria and rafa all of your fan l over the moon for your new son hope everything goes to plan vamos

  9. If this is true, many congrats are in order but I may wait until Rafa announces it himself. Those photos are very intrusive. Rafa has said many times in the past that he wont be playing tennis when he has children. We will wait and see. Still hoping he can play wimbledon and US Open to see if he can get the calendar slam but only if the foot allows it.
