“Earlier today, in my hometown, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka and I got married,” the 13-time grand slam champion wrote. “It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Roger Federer wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend. Love, Roger.”

Just last month, Vavrinec and Federer had announced that they were expecting their first child together. The lady is a former professional tennis player from Switzerland and the couple met at a Swiss training camp in 2000.

Mirka is 30-years old and was a former top 100 tennis player. She now serves as Roger’s public relations manager and travels with him around the world. You can see her photos and a biography here.

Federer will be playing in the next week’s, Monte Carlo Masters, a tournament he has never won despite making it to the finals as many as three times.
