Former tennis player Kim Clijsters has just announced that she and her professional basketball player husband Brian Lynch are expecting their second child together.

Sports Illustrated reports the star shared on twitter that she was pregnant again, and is due this September.

Lynch and Clijsters have one child together, 5-year-old daughter Jada, who was born in Belgium in 2008. The pair married back in 2007.

Both of the proud parents shared their excitement about the news through Twitter. Lynch is excited for the new baby, tweeting, “Couldn't be more happy to say wifey has a bun in the oven!!!”

According to People, Clijsters decided to take a break from tennis, with her last competition being the U.S Open this past August. Clijsters has said her retirement was due to her desire to focus more on her family.

Clijsters also said of her pregnancy, “Halfway into September Jada will have a brother or sister. We are of course delighted. I’m doing fine, even though I tire more easily right now.”
