Meet Roger Federer’s adorable four children

The tennis player is the proud dad of two sets of twins!

Roger Federer isn’t just one of the greatest tennis players of all time. He’s also a loving husband and father!

The winner of 20 grand slams first met fellow tennis player Miroslava ‘Mirka’ Vavrinec at the 2000 Sydney Olympics while they were both competing for Switzerland.

A romance between the two quickly ensued and, after dating for almost a decade, Roger and Mirka tied the knot on April 11 in 2009.

The intimate ceremony took place in the picturesque Wenkenhof Villa in Basel – Roger’s hometown.

Is Roger Federer a father?

Yes, as aforementioned, Roger is indeed a father; a proud one at that!

How many children does Roger Federer have?

Roger has four children.

In late 2009, shortly after their wedding, Roger and Mirka welcomed identical twin girls, named Myla and Charlene.

At the time, Roger shared the news on Facebook and wrote, “This is the best day of our lives.”

Then in 2014, the couple welcomed another set of twins, this time fraternal twin boys named Leo and Lenny.

Days after the boys were born, Roger told the Telegraph, “This is the best time of my life,” before adding:

“When we found out we were having twins, it was like one of those moments where you’re like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe it, it’s really happening again.’

It’s clear that Roger just dotes on his kids; he’s made so many loving comments about them over the years.

For instance, when Roger retired from tennis in September 2022, he released a statement that thanked his wife but also Myla, Charlene, Leo and Lenny.

“I also want to thank my four wonderful children for supporting me, always eager to explore new places, and creating wonderful memories along the way. Seeing my family cheering me on from the stands is a feeling I will cherish forever,” the statement read.

Likewise, in June of this year, Roger listed each of his children’s interests to People… And it looks like Leo might follow in his parents’ footsteps.

“They do play tennis, and we ski, and we’re all learning to golf. We recently tried scuba diving. But the girls were never passionate about tennis, and I was relieved about it,” Roger said.

“The boys love their soccer. Leo is starting to show interest in getting serious about tennis. Lenny is much more creative, he’s very into drawing, reading.”

He went on to share that he was planning to treat his four children by taking them to The Eras Tour.

“This summer Taylor Swift is coming to Switzerland so, of course we’ll go to that.”

Roger kept that promise; fans spotted Roger, Mirka, Myla, Charlene, Leo and Lenny happily dancing and singing along at the July 8 show of The Eras Tour in Zürick.

The tennis star then shared a photo of him and Taylor to Instagram, so we’re guessing his four kids were lucky enough to meet Taylor too!
