It’s love all around for Kim Clijsters!

The former tennis champion and her husband Brian Lynch welcomed their second child — a boy! — on Wednesday, Sept. 18, Clijsters announced on Twitter.

Jack Leon Lynch is born! Born at 7:06 p.m. tonight and we are both doing well,” the new mom, who gave birth in Belgium, writes. “His big sister, mama and daddy are very proud and happy!”

Baby boy joins the couple’s daughter Jada Ellie, 5½.

Clijsters, who retired from the sport after competing in the 2012 U.S. Open, announced her pregnancy in February.

“We are of course delighted,” she wrote on her website. “I’m doing fine, even though I tire more easily right now.”

I looked up to Kim so much when she played professional tennis. She is a true class act and a very kind person. Congratulations on the birth of your son!

Congratulations to Kim and her family. I guess “Leon” may be in homage to her late dad, Leo. She was my favorite women’s player. The game just hasn’t been the same w/out her.
