Nadal's wife Mery checks into clinic 31 weeks into pregnancy
Thursday, August 25, 2022 @ 9:38 PM

TOP tennis ace Rafael Nadal and his wife are set to be parents some time soon – Mery Perelló has reportedly checked into a room at a private clinic in Palma de Mallorca.

She is not due yet, being 31 weeks in, but 'might' be due for an operation at some point Thursday 'as recommended by her doctors', according to reports in numerous media sources.

The nature of the operation is not yet clear, but Mery, 33, is said to be 'in observation as a precaution' at present.

Her baby, thought to be a boy, is the couple's first, and is believed to be due around late October.

This means his arrival would coincide, approximately, with their third wedding anniversary.

Mery, a former MAPFRE insurance office manager and PR assistant for Endesa electricity, is project leader for her famous tennis star husband's eponymous charitable foundation, and her mother-in-law, Ana Parera, is its director.

Rafa's sister Maribel, Mery's closest friend and the person who introduced the couple in the beginning, is marketing manager for the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy.

Maribel, along with Mery's parents, is said to be accompanying the mum-to-be at the hospital, since Rafa is on the other side of the pond preparing for his next Grand Slam date, the US Open.

He was 17 and Mery was 14 when the latter's classmate and the former's sister introduced them to each other, and within two years, they were a couple – but it would take them until October 2019 before they wed in an hermetically-sealed ceremony at La Fortalesa estate in Pollenca, Mallorca.

They had become engaged in Rome in May 2018 – during a moment Rafa jokingly admitted was anything but romantic, given the length of time they had been together – and honeymooned in the Bahamas a couple of months before the wedding.
