It's a girl! Roddick welcomes second child

Andy Roddick poses with his trophy after winning the 2003 men's singles title.

Former US Open champion Andy Roddick is a dad for the second time.

The 2017 International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee and his wife, model and actress Brooklyn Decker, welcomed a baby girl named Stevie in late November. They kept the news under wraps until Jan. 3, when Decker showed off their latest addition in an Instagram post.

"A newborn, a toddler, a dog in a cone, a dog with a tumor but I'm having a good hair day so it's fine, we're fine, I'm fine," she wrote alongside a photo of herself cradling the infant.

The 2003 US Open champion announced that he and Decker were expecting their second child during his Hall of Fame induction speech last July. Decker later revealed that Roddick's announcement was unplanned and that he was simply overwhelmed by the occasion.

"You hear a lot of guys find it very tough to walk away from professional sports, but you are the reason my personal transition into a quasi-everyday life has been gratifying and full," said Roddick. "Hank (their first son) will someday realize how lucky he is, and our daughter that's coming will also realize that she has the best mother on Earth."

Roddick and Decker began dating in 2007 and tied the knot in April 2009. She was a regular on tour for the last few years of his career and was in the stands when Roddick played his final match at the 2012 US Open.
