Shock delivery: Bec Hewitt has her baby six weeks early!

The baby’s surprise entrance into the world creates drama.

Tennis star Lleyton Hewitt and his gorgeous wife Bec have welcomed into the world their third child – who arrived early last week.

The delighted couple were celebrating the birth of the bub – a girl named Ava Sydney Hewitt – at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital.

But the little one’s arrival was not without drama. Bec was rushed from her Dural home to hospital, well before the December due date she spoke of back in May. Arriving with her parents, Darrel and Michele, in the back seat of their car, Bec was taken by wheelchair straight to the hospital’s birthing suite. “They moved her inside pretty quickly,” says a hospital visitor.

Shortly after, Bec’s sister Kristy arrived with her two children, before Lleyton dashed to the airport to collect his parents, Glynn and Cherilyn, who live in Adelaide.

“As soon as they heard the news they flew straight to Sydney,” says a family friend. “They were determined not to miss a thing.” Just a few hours later, the baby arrived, leaving all four grandparents relieved and beaming with pride. Bec and Lleyton had always wanted a third child, but they didn’t expect their wish to come true so soon. “We were thinking we’d wait until Lleyton retires, because travelling with two is plenty,” Bec told OK magazine. “It’s a happy surprise though.”
