Roger Federer announced that he and his wife Mirka are expecting another baby together on Christmas Day through Twitter.

"Mirka and I are very happy to share the news that Myla and Charlene will be big sisters in 2014," Federer tweeted. "Happy Holidays," he added.

Federer's agent Tony Godsick confirmed the good news to The Associated Press.

It surely will be a blissful holiday season for Roger and Mirka. A new baby brings joy and it is truly an ultimate blessing for the couple. It seems like both Roger and Mirka are ready for a bigger family. Roger did not reveal how many months Mirka is already pregnant. He also did not state the gender of the baby, whether they are expecting another girl or a boy. Maybe it is still early to tell, anyway.

What are the chances of Roger and Mirka having twins again after their first set of twins? Their identical twins, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, were born in July 23, 2009.

Not known to many, Roger and Mirka first met at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Mirka officially retired from playing tennis in 2002 because of her recurring foot injury. Ever since then, she has become a constant supporter of Roger and has always been seen attending most of his tennis matches. They wed in April 11, 2009.

Federer will lead an all-star lineup in his first-ever participation in the 2014 Brisbane International which will run from Dec. 29 to Jan. 5. It has been reported that Federer will be arriving in Brisbane ahead of the tournament and that his family, Mirka and twin daughters, will be joining him so that they could spend some quality time together during the holiday season.

Congratulations to Roger and Mirka for the new baby on the way!
