Baby joy for Rafter

TENNIS great Pat Rafter yesterday became a father for the second time when his wife Lara gave birth to a girl.

Lara delivered a 4kg daughter at 3am in Sydney. The baby is yet to be named. The couple have a two-year-old son, Joshua.

An elated Rafter said Lara and his daughter were "really healthy".

"Everyone is really healthy and happy," he said. "Josh thinks it's great, too.

"He's very excited."

Rafter, 32, retired from the professional circuit four years ago.

He was named Australian of the Year in 2002.

Which means, of course, the two v.2's will -- 20 years from now -- fall in love and marry! Pity the poor grandchildren having to listen to their grandfathers talk about their old matches. :haha:
