Who is Kim Sears?
Kim Sears is the wife of tennis star Andy Murray.
She was born on December 10, 1987, in the village of Barcombe.
Sears achieved A-grades in music, drama and art for her A-levels, attending the same school as This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby in Sussex.
She then went on to study at Sussex University.
Sears and Murray met at the US Open and married at Dunblane Cathedral on April 11, 2015.
The pair now share four children together.
Their eldest daughter Sophia was born in 2016 before Edie followed in 2017.
Kim then gave birth to son Teddy in 2019 and another daughter in 2021 whose name has not been publicly revealed, but is thought to be Lola.
Sears is often seen supporting Murray at his tennis matches and is occasionally joined by their children.
When did Kim Sears and Andy Murray meet?
Sears and Murray first met back in 2005.
When they met they were both in their teens, Kim 17 years old and Andy 18.
Kim’s father, former tennis player and coach Nigel Sears, introduced the pair to each other.
At the time, he was head of the Women’s Tennis Association.
Their romance was first revealed when Murray kissed Sears after he won his first tournament in 2006.
The couple briefly split up in 2009 before they reconciled and have been inseparable ever since.
In an October 2019 interview with The Telegraph, Murray praised his wife for supporting him throughout his career.
He said Sears is “very understanding of everything” he’s done, adding: “Like going away for training blocks in Miami after a really long year and things like that.
“It might not seem like much but we don’t get to see each other all of the time and it does make a big difference when you don’t have that, like, drama in your personal life and lots of things going on away from the court.”
Murray added: “She has been brilliant like that, allowed me to pursue my career and been unbelievably supportive of me doing that, so I’ve been very lucky.”
The family live in a mansion in Oxshott, Surrey with their dogs Maggie and Rusty.
Has Kim Sears ever been embroiled in controversy?
Sears was once involved in a controversial incident while supporting her husband’s tennis career.
In 2015, during Murray’s match against Tomas Berdych in the Australian Open semi-final, Sears appeared to swear about Murray’s opponent.
She was caught on camera seemingly mouthing: “F***** have that you Czech flash f***.”
Sears appeared to make light of her outburst by wearing a “Parental Advisory” jumper during the tournament’s final.
After he was appointed a Sir in 2017, Murray also joked about the incident.
He said: “She’s going to have to…no more swearing during my matches any more, for any of you who saw that a few years ago.”
