Only today I heard that Australian 28-year-old Casey Dellacqua became a mom three weeks ago, to a baby boy called Blake Benjamin, and it quite shocked me, especially since she played three rounds of the US Open qualifying and lost in the first round of the main draw on Day 2 to Ajla Tomljanovic. Then I figured she wasn’t pregnant actually and her partner is a woman called Amanda. I didn’t know she was lesbian!
I’m loving motherhood, my whole thing in life is family and it’s been a pretty exciting time.
Dellacqua remains in the women’s doubles draw and with fellow Australian Ashleigh Barty she’ll try to reach their third Grand Slam final this season, while in mixed doubles she’s paired with Scott Lipsky, with whom she won the 2011 French Open. (source: NineMSN, photo: © Neal Trousdale)
