Less than two months after their posh wedding in St. Moritz, Switzerland, Wimbledon legend Boris Becker and his second wife, Sharlely "Lilly" Kerssenberg, 33, are expecting a baby.

Becker, who has two sons with ex-wife Barbara Feltus, and a daughter from a brief affair, confirmed the happy news to the German newspaper Bild. "Yes, we're going to be parents," he said. "We are really looking forward to our baby."

On June 12, the tennis star, 42, and his wife tied the knot in the Bergkappelle, or mountain chapel, in St. Moritz, 6,562 feet above sea level. Kerssenberg was walked down the aisle by her 80-year-old grandmother, Esseline Kerssenberg-Bradley. Becker's best man was his friend Luis Garcia Fanjul, a Mexican businessman.

Meanwhile, Becker's ex-wife, Barbara Feltus, will be marrying Belgian artist Arne Qunize in September at a castle in Potsdam, outside of Berlin. According to B.Z., a local tabloid, her good friend Lenny Kravitz is expected to be best man.
