Roger Federer and Family: Double Take

12/23/2009 at 01:00 PM ET

Tennis ace Roger Federer will undoubtedly be checking his list twice this Christmas!

The 28-year-old World No. 1 on Tuesday shared a new family photo via Facebook. Identical twins Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, 5 months today, are seen sitting contently for Roger and wife Mirka, whom he wed in April.

“Many fans have asked for an updated picture of our girls so we thought we’d post this picture for the holiday season,” Roger writes. “Our entire family wishes you a safe and happy 2010.”

I am a big Federer fan! I’m glad to see a picture of the girls-they are little cuties! Glad to see they all look healthy and happy for the new year!

Too cute! The parents are all happy, and both girls just look like “I’m tired of posing. Hurry up and take the dang picture already!” Haha, so adorable.

Wow! He looks a lot older than 28! Does anyone know how old his wife is? I would assume they would be around the same age, but she looks much older than 28 too!

They are a very beautiful couple, nonetheless, with darling girls 😉

Roger often gets that look after time in the Dubai sun. And his wife Mirka is 31.

Lis, if you have children you would know that parents always look older in the first year that their children were born, it’s all those am feedings and interupted sleep that gets you looking soooooooo tired, because you don’t want to miss a thing when your baby first arrives, unfortunately it is sleep that you miss the most of. lol

Cute, cute, cute! Of all the twins happening in the world now, are these little girls possibly actually identical?

The babies are so cute! Roger and Mirka look so happy.

I believe that Roger has said in an interview that they are identical. I hope they are, I can’t think of any other celebrity identical twins (that are still babies).

Lou on

very cute family…

is it just me, or does Mirka look very similar to Pam from the office?

Ruthella on

Aww so cute 🙂 They look like they’re identical? Just gorgeous!

Totally! When i first saw the picture, I thought, “wait, I didn’t know that Jenna Fisher (Pam) was pregnant.”

They are adorable girls!! And I agree that it’s fun to see a set of identical twins since almost all Hollywood twins are fraternal.

Jennifer on

Oh I love that smile on Roger’s face! He looks like the happiest, most proud dad ever 🙂

Shannon on

Cute girls! They look like a perfect blend between the parents

To urbanadventurertales – awesome name !

So natural and not a fake bone in their bodies. Credit to Roger’s parents for raising such a wonderful human being. Merry Christmas, Roger and Mirka.

Roger and his family are gorgeous. They look very happy.
I’m glad to see the girls aren’t dressed up like little dolls.
The family looks relaxed and natural, just the way it should

Gia on

How cute! they are so lucky to have two gorgeous girls and im sure they know this! LOVE the name Myla Rose too!

Jennifer on

Congratulations to their family and thanks for sharing the pic it is very nice. I wouldn’t mind seeing a pic of them in pretty dresses. The twins are very cute.

Whitney on

at first I thought they were identical but in this pic the look a lot alike but have different noses… They could be like MK and Ashley Olsen….fraternal but still look almost the same
