Roger Federer Becomes a Father To Twin Girls

World number one, Roger Federer has become a father for the first time. 

This comes after news that his wife, Mirka, gave birth on Thursday. 

Federer released statements on his Facebook page and personal website which said the following:

"I have some exciting news to share with you: Late last night, in Switzerland, Mirka and I became proud parents of twin girls! We named them Myla Rose and Charlene Riva and they are both healthy and along with their mother, they are doing great. This is the best day of our lives!"

Roger met his wife in 2000 when they were both at the Sydney Olympic Games. They married in April. 

I would like to, on behalf of Bleacher Report, congratulate Roger and Mirka on the birth of their children and wish them all the happiness that parenthood and family life brings.
