According to reports, tennis ace Andy Murray and his artist wife Kim Sears are to become parents for the first time.
The couple, who married in a lavish ceremony in Scotland in April, have reportedly only told close friends and family about the baby news.
The paper adds that stylish artist Kim recently visited hospital for a 3-month-scan, adding to speculation that the couple's first child will be born in February 2016.
The long-term couple wed after a ten year courtship in Andy's hometown of Dunblane, followed by a reception at the luxury Cromlix House hotel, which Andy owns.
The former Wimbledon champ's supportive mother Judy is said to be overjoyed at the news, having recently told the media she couldn't wait to be a grandmother.
Andy (28) and Kim (27) currently live in Surrey.
The former British number one recently told Sky Sports that he has taken to married life like a duck to water, and has helped enhance his performance.
"It (marriage) has been nice and a lot of people have spoken about the honeymoon period," Murray said on Sky Sports 3.
"But we've been together a very long time and getting married was the next step.
"I've always said if the personal stuff is happy and under control that helps your performance on the court.
"But I also feel healthy this year and I have trained well, I'm in much better shape on the clay than I have been for a number of years," he concluded.
