Monfils couldn't wait to be a daddy
In May this year, Gael Monfils and his wife Svitolina announced they are going to have a baby.
Svitolina, of course, took a long break from tennis to go through her pregnancy. "With a heart full of love and happiness, we are delighted to announce that we are expecting a baby girl in October," Svitolina wrote in a Twitter post.
Monfils clearly expressed his excitement about becoming a father. “Yeah [I’m excited], it's gonna be a different life. I can’t wait to have my baby girl, I hope I’ll be a cool daddy. It's gonna be in a couple of weeks now.
So I just have to focus now, daddy he has to win a couple more matches and be ready for October,” Monfils said. The Monfils-Svitolina couple tied the knot last year and they look to be a great pair. Monfils showed his support for his wife on plenty of occasions.
“Gael has been here every step of the way, he is a huge support. Obviously he sees that I’m not in the best mood everyday, there are ups and downs so I’m really thankful for his support, I know it’s difficult for him to see me sad,” Svitolina told the Olympics website.
