Good things come in twos in the Roger Federer family as the tennis star and his wife, Mirka Federer, have two sets of twins. The couple’s nine-year-old daughters, Myla and Charlene, are the oldest, while their four-year-old sons, Leo and Lennart, round out the party of six in the Federer household.
Roger and Mirka’s four children are all home-schooled which allows them to travel with him on tour. This can make for a little bit different of an environment than some of Roger’s competitors, but that is the way he prefers it.
“I refuse to leave the bed with my wife. We always wanted to have kids, but my dream was to be with [her] and not in another bedroom on another floor,” Roger noted, per Daily Mail. “I’d rather sleep with kids screaming than away from my wife.”
Roger has embraced fatherhood and called it the “most incredible thing in the world.”
“It did not change a lot,” Federer explained, per Tennis World. “It’s hard sometimes saying no even though you are like, It does not make a big difference but I did not need to have kids for a wake up call in my life but it’s the most incredible thing in the to world to have kids in general and having that responsibility.”

Roger and Mirka have embraced their lives as a traveling family understanding that at some point his career will end. The couple’s four children have become veteran travelers with stops all over the world.
“I feel very fortunate I can travel with them around the world and I discovered the cities now from a different angle,” Roger explained, per Tennis World. “They are so cute, well-educated, they like traveling, they get excited when they go on a plane or when they come to zoo or even tennis with me. I never saw myself in a vision as a tennis player and father and husband at the same time. For me it was like, Hopefully I would win Wimbledon one day, I would be No. 1 one day and probably have a girlfriend.”
