Introducing Mia Rebecca Hewitt!
Proud parents Bec and Lleyton Hewitt have released the exclusive photos of their first child, daughter Mia Rebecca, in Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine. Tennis star Lleyton was present for the entire birth on November 29 and says, "It’s amazing to call ourselves a little family at last … I couldn’t be happier. To see a baby coming out of your wife’s body after nine months, and to think you made her together."

Mia arrived on her due date at Sydney’s North Shore Private Hospital at 1:45am after Bec had felt her first contraction just 8 hours previously, "It wasn’t quite the four-and-a-half hour labour people think – it was a bit longer than that – but it could have been worse," says Bec, who had an epidural to cope with the pain. Speaking of her husband’s parenting skills, Bec says "He’s great, you know, a really hands-on dad, changing nappies and everything. And he can’t wait to give her a kiss when he gets home from tennis practice every day. I think she’s going to be very spoilt, but she’ll bring us many years of happiness!" And Bec says that even though it’s hard to tell hoe Mia looks like, "When I feed her, I see Lleyton’s eyes, and she has a dimple in her chin like the both of us. That was one of the first things I noticed when she was born."
