Kim Sears will become Mrs Murray (we hope)


Andy Murray‘s girl Kim Sears is Wimbledon’s finest WAG – so here’s the lowdown on the Scottish tennis ace’s special girl. 

1 They’re not getting married yet

They’ve been dating since 2006 but Kim, 26, and Andy, 27, aren’t engaged, despite him once joking on Twitter: We’re getting married just after Wimbledon, should be great.’

Andy‘s even said they enjoy time apart: If we spend three months in a row together, by the end we’re, like, arguing and stuff.’

2 She’s an animal portraitist (yes, really)

Kim earns her living painting pet portraits and is devoted to the couple’s Border terriers Rusty and Maggie. Maggie even has her own Twitter account, which is managed by Kim, with over 27,000 followers.

3 Her dad’s a coach

Kim‘s used to the life of a pro tennis player as her dad Nigel is a tennis coach. Kim met Andy at a party in 2005 while travelling with her dad and he became her first real boyfriend a year later.

4 Judy Murray loves her

Although Andy‘s mum Judy has a rep for being scary (have you heard how loud she shouts: Come
on, Andy!’ during his matches?), Kim‘s clearly got her seal of approval. They regularly hug when Andy wins and Judy described Kim as the best thing that ever happened’ to her son.

5 Her hair has its very own Twitter account

Her trademark ‘do is known as the Kim‘. It’s a natural’ blow-dry and is so popular it has its own Twitter account (@KimSearsHair) with over 600 followers.
