Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka is officially a mother. People reported that the 25-year-old athlete welcomed her first child, a baby girl, in Los Angeles with her boyfriend Cordae. “They are doing well,” the source told People of Osaka and her daughter. The exact birth date and baby’s name weren’t revealed.
Osaka announced her pregnancy in January of this year, explaining that she would be taking a break from tennis to have her child but would return next year. “Can’t wait to get back on the court but here’s a little life update for 2023,” Osaka wrote alongside a photo of her ultrasound.
She added in a Notes screenshot in the carousel, “The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that its the most challenging times in life that may be the most fun. These few months away from the sport has really given me a new love and appreciation for the game I’ve dedicated my life to. I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moments for granted, everyday is a new blessing and adventure. I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, ‘that’s my mom,’ haha. 2023 will be a year that’ll be full of lessons for me and I hope I’ll see you guys in the start of the next one cause I’ll be at Aus 2024. Love you all infinitely.”
“Sidenote : I don’t think there’s a perfectly correct path to take in life but I always felt that if you move forward with good intentions you’ll find your way eventually,” she concluded.
Osaka last shared photos from her baby shower on June 2, revealing she was having a girl.
