Rafter A Father!

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/National/story_36533.asp


Tennis superstar and Australian of the year Pat Rafter has become a father for the first time.

His father Jim Rafter said hat his son's partner Lara Feltham had given birth early this morning.

"It's a boy," Mr Rafter said.

"They're both well, it was a long birth."

The baby was born at the Selangor Private Hospital at Nambour on the Queensland Sunshine Coast.

Pat Rafter and Ms Feltham have been based on the Sunshine Coast at their Noosa Heads apartment in the weeks leading up to the birth of their first child.

Two time US Open winner and former world No 1, Rafter has been out of tennis all year in the lead-up to the birth of his partner's baby.

Rafter, 29, and Ms Feltham, 33, recently bought a $5.5 million mansion in the Sydney harbourside suburb of Mosman, where they intend to settle with their son.
