Djokovic is the third father in the Top 5 of the Emirates ATP Rankings, joining Switzerland's Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. His official website posted a statement to confirm the Belgrade native will spend the following few days at home with his family, before travelling to Paris for the BNP Paribas Masters, beginning Monday, 27 October.
Stefan, our baby angel was born! I am so proud of my beautiful wife Jelena! Thank you so much for your love and support. We love you all!!!~Novak via twitter
The 27-year-old Serbian had announced the pregnancy through social media in April, posting on Facebook, “My dear friends, You've been with me through many tough and good times in my career. I've been blessed to travel the world, play the most beautiful sport that brings me a lot of excitement and joy; I am happy, loved and healthy. Jelena and I are truly blessed to soon become parents! My love is pregnant!”
The two were married in July, four days after Djokovic won his second Wimbledon title.
