As you must have heard, Victoria Azarenka is pregnant! The tennis star announced it today in an elaborate statement, but what is strange is that she's very reserved in talking about the baby father, Billy McKeague. However, there are some pics of her handsome boyfriend online and I'm excited to share them with you.
First, the main part of Vika's announcement:
It’s been a few weeks since you last heard from me. While recovering from the knee injury that I sustained at Roland Garros, I received news from my doctor that my boyfriend and I are going to become parents at the end of this year. We couldn’t be happier and feel very blessed to begin this exciting journey of building a family together.
While I will miss competing in the sport that I love this season, I am excited for all that’s ahead. I will take the time to improve myself in ways I’ve never been able to do before. I have been truly inspired by so many strong female athletes who return to the very top of their sport after having children, and I plan to do exactly that. There is nothing more special than becoming a parent, and I’m blessed to have so many examples of women, in every walk of life, who have pursued careers they love while raising children.

Vika's previous relationship, with Redfoo, was very public, but with her new boyfriend the Belarusian for some reason decided to keep her love life far from the media radar. What is strange is that Vika did post some photos with her American partner on Instagram, not officially announcing the relationship, but since photos were of her hugging with the guy, it was obvious that he was her love partner, however, she has deleted those photos!
Today, when the 26-year-old announced her pregnancy, everyone started googling "Who is Victoria Azarenka's boyfriend", but unless you dug really deep, you couldn't find anything.
My reader Sru was especially successful and found this Vine clip of Vika's boyfriend:

Azarenka is expected to give birth at the end of the year, as you've read in her statement, and she's definitely planning to return to the sport, strong and fit, just like Kim Clijsters and Lindsay Davenport did back in the day.
