My new baby was conceived during Wimbledon, says Willis

By Sherna Noah

Wimbledon tennis star Marcus Willis has revealed he is going to become a father - to a baby conceived during the tournament.

The British player (25) stunned Wimbledon this year when he reached the second round to face Roger Federer on Centre Court despite being ranked at number 772 in the world. He told Hello! magazine that becoming a father was "a dream come true".

Willis beat Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis to make it through to the second round just months after he was talked out of quitting tennis by his fiancee Jenny Bate. Bate (30) told the magazine: "We think the baby was conceived after the Berankis game."
