Naomi Osaka Welcomes First Child With Boyfriend Cordae

Their baby girl was born in Los Angeles.

She’s here!

Tennis phenom Naomi Osaka welcomed her first child, a daughter with boyfriend Cordae, on Tuesday (July 10), as reported by PEOPLE.

A source told the outlet that mommy and baby are “doing well”.

The proud mom broke the news she was expecting on Instagram in January. She shared a sonogram of her growing baby, along with a heartfelt message.  “I know realize that life is short and I don’t take any moments from granted, everyday is a new blessing and adventure. I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matched and tell someone, “that’s my mom”, haha.”

The four-time Grand Slam singles champion continued, “2023 will be a year that’ll be full of lessons for me and I hope I’ll see you guys in the start of next one cause I’ll be at US 2024.”

Osaka withdrew from the French Open in 2021 to focus on her mental health, but received backlash after she decided to not participate in post-match press conferences, as cited by USA Today.

Of that decision, she took to Twitter in a transparent post on her struggles with depression. “I never wanted to be a distraction and I accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer…The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the US Open 2018 and I have had a really hard time coping with that.”, the post read in part.

During her pregnancy, Osaka took joy in preparing for the arrival of her little girl with her beau.

Back in April, Osaka told PEOPLE that they had been considering baby names for their baby girl. "We have been discussing names. I would say that we are going for something more unique than traditional," she said.

She also opened up to the outlet on her pregnancy cravings, and admitted that she “haven't craved anything out of the ordinary."
