PARIS: Former top-ranked tennis player Amelie Mauresmo has given birth to a second child.

Mauresmo, who stepped down as France's Fed Cup captain last year when she announced her pregnancy, posted a picture of her children's hands with the caption: "Aaron and Ayla finally met on April 20! Deeply moving..."

The two-time Grand Slam champion had her first child two years ago.
