Roger Federer posts first photo of twin daughters on Facebook

On July 24, Roger Federer and his wife Mirka announced the birth of their twin daughters, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, on Facebook. So it's only fitting that the first public photo of the girls was released on the social networking Web site too.

This morning, Federer posted a picture and a message on his page for all his 2.5 million Facebook friends to see:

As promised, here is a family picture that my dad took. He thinks he's becoming a professional photographer. It was very funny as both girls had the hiccups while we were trying to take a decent picture. The girls and mom are doing great. Thanks for all your warm wishes.

I don't know why, but the fact that Federer's dad took the picture makes it that much sweeter.

Congratulations to Roger and Mirka. And if Myla and Charlene take after their father in any way at all, we may have just gotten our first glimpse at the finalists at Wimbledon in 2029.
