Former Grand Slam champion tennis star Maria Sharapova has confirmed that she is expecting her first child soon.

According to the news agency ‘Reuters’, the former Russian tennis star has confirmed the expected birth of her first child in a social media post.

Maria Sharapova shared a photo of herself on the beach on Instagram, in which she can be seen with ‘Baby Bump’. The former Grand Slam champion announced the birth of his first child on the occasion of his 35th birthday.

Maria Sharapova was engaged in December 2020 to 45-year-old British industrialist Alexander Gilkes, with whom she had been in a relationship for the past few years.

This is Maria Sharapova’s second engagement and Alexander Gulkes’ second engagement. Maria Sharapova first got engaged a decade ago in 2010 at the age of 22 to an American basketball player and the two lived together for almost two years.

However, when the bitterness between the two increased in 2012, the two ended the relationship and later the tennis star established a relationship with other men.

Legender Glake’s first marriage was to British fashion designer Mishano in 2003, but he separated from his first wife in 2016, 13 years later.

Maria Sharapova moved to the United States in 1994 to train tennis at the age of seven.

In 2004, at the age of 17, Maria Sharapova won her first Grand Slam by defeating number one seed Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final.

In 2016, Maria Sharapova admitted to failing a drug test at the Australian Open due to her drug use, after which she was temporarily suspended by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) for two years.

After the ban was lifted, she returned to tennis in 2018 but did not have much success, after which she announced her retirement in February 2020.

Maria Sharapova was famous for her beauty and modeling more than her sport and she is still famous for her modeling.
