The first news about Maria's pregnancy was reported by Hola. Nadal admitted to reporters that he was in no hurry to announce this, because he does not like excessive attention to his person.

About me and so often write in the press because of my professional activities. My family and I would like to keep some privacy. Previously, the tennis player has stated that he plans to have children after the end of his sports career.

I would like to have children: boys, girls … I love children and I am a family man. But the reality is that the years go by. I would like to have all this for me when my sporting life determines it.
