Carla Suarez Navarro, last 13 December 2022, announced that she was pregnant and that she, together with her partner Olga Garcia, would embark on her motherhood journey with great enthusiasm. "We wanted to announce that I am three months pregnant.
It is twelve weeks of tremendous joy to bring new life into the world. Both I and Olga García, my partner, feel a huge responsibility, it is a great pride to have taken this step and I was thrilled to share it with all of you." The former Spanish tennis player, in the last few hours, has revealed an important update on his Instagram account.
The joy will in fact be double: she is expecting twins!

She wrote on Instagram: "A few months ago we announced with great enthusiasm that we would become mothers.
A few days later, they gave us double joy. Twins is coming! I'm counting the days left to see you and enjoy this amazing new phase together." Suarez Navarro played her last official tournament at the Billie Jean King Cup Finals with Spain.
In September 2021, the former world number 6 was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. After months of treatment, the former Spanish player defeated the disease and fulfilled her dream of greeting all her fans on the tennis court.
"I can say that I have overcome Hodgkin's lymphoma," she wrote with emotion in Spanish on social media. Many thanks to my family, my life partner, my friends, acquaintances. I will never be able to thank you for all your help.
I will try to give you back all the affection through moments to live together. To all of you, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all the loving messages, every word of support has given me the strength to carry on and fight for the past few months.
I'll wait for you at the finish line. All gratitude goes to the professionals who take care of us every day and who have given me faith and hope during my struggle. I HEALED."
