I am entirely resisting starting today's Celebaby post with any mention whatsoever of the phrase 'Game, set and match' but how's this for news? Tennis ace Roger Federer and his wife Mirka have just become proud parents of twin boys - and they've already got twin girls!

Now that's pretty remarkable.

Federer took to Twitter to share his baby announcement with his followers. He tweeted:

 Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening! #TwinsAgain #Miracle

Cute names too, eh?

The BBC reports:

"Federer, 32, pulled out of this week's Madrid Masters tournament on Tuesday as the Swiss world number four chose to be with his wife for the birth in Zurich."

"The 17-time Grand Slam champion already has four-year-old twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva."

The Beeb also quotes this fab tweet from tennis doubles star Mahesh Bhupathi: 

"Fed has twins again!! Normally that would be classified as a miracle I think but in his case probably just a walk in the park..#astounding"

Twins must run in Federer's family, as his older sister is also the mother of twins.

Can you even imagine the mayhem that is caring for two sets of twins, though?

Man, I'm going to need another cup of coffee just to calm down from even thinking about what a challenge that must be...
