Roger Federer: “It’s An Amazing Feeling To Be Called A Dad”

Tennis ace Roger Federer may be a pro on the court, but he admits he’s a bit out of his element when it comes to Daddy duty.

Roger, who welcomed twin daughters Charlene and Myla with his wife Mirka on July 23, tells People of double diaper duty, “Thank God nobody is judging me on it! It’s hard! But I’m still trying to be good at it.”

The doting dad is back to work competing in the US Open in New York, but he says he makes plenty of time for his family.

“It’s been a lot of fun being a father and spending time with them,” the 28-year-old reveals. “I’m hands on as much as I can because everyday is something new and something different. I don’t want to miss anything.”

Despite his amazing tennis career, Roger says his new job as a father is the one that means the most: “It’s an amazing feeling to be called a dad. I take a lot of pride in that title.”

    I loved Mary Carillo’s story, during the Open coverage last week, about how Roger just kisses on those babies all the time – can’t help himself. He’s a class act (and a big ol’ softie), Mirka is an absolute rock, and they’ve always sounded completely devoted to each other. Carry on, Federers!
