Retired Dutch tennis player Kiki Bertens announced that she is expected a baby in April 2022. She shared the news on social media with a picture at the beach with her husband Remko de Rijke.
Kiki Bertens retired from tennis earlier this year after the Tokyo Olympics. She won 10 singles titles in her career and reached a peak singles ranking of world number 4. She is the highest-ranked Dutch tennis female player ever.
At the time of her retirement, Bertens was ranked world number 24 in singles. She said that her injuries prevented her from playing at the highest level and were the primary reason for retirement at age 29.
Kiki Bertens and Remko de Rijke, who is a physiotherapist, got engaged in 2018 and married in 2019. This is the couple’s first child.
