Andy and Kim Murray clearly have lots of fun with their kids but raising four isn’t always easy and the busy mum shared an unexpected downside in a new interview with The Sunday Times.
The 35-year-old gave some behind-the-scenes insight into the experience of renovating her and her husband’s £5million Surrey home, revealing She promised her architect she would never get pregnant again Because she had three kids between the start and end of the project!
In a candid interview with the newspaper, Kim said: “I had to tell the architect three times during the construction work that I was pregnant.
“The last one we finalized plans for an extra guest room, which we then had to convert into a nursery for Lola. They made me promise not to get pregnant again!”
The project took five years, starting when the couple’s eldest daughter Sofia, now seven, was four months old. The couple also share five-year-old Eddie, three-year-old son Teddy and little Lola, who is now two.
Kim commented: “It was a big project that I worked with an amazing team. The amount of decisions I had to make and my ability to make them quickly was learned during that process.”
The mother of four, with a background in painting, has since embarked on a renovation of her and Andy’s hotel near her hometown of Dunblane in Scotland.

As well as their children and property investments, Kim and Andy share a passion for tennis, not least because of how they met.
Kim’s father Nigel is a tennis coach whose friend was coaching Andy in 2005 when the couple met at the US Open. Kim was 17 and Andy was 18 at the time and they’ve been together ever since, with the blonde beauty showing her support for her partner from the stands.
