Former world No. 1 Viktor Axelsen and girlfriend Natalia Rohde have welcomed a baby girl named Vega Rohde Axelsen.

Axelsen shared the news through his social media account.

โ€œSay Hi to Vega Rohde Axelsen. She was born at 10:26 PM yesterday evening Danish time. So proud of you and your amazing mom.โ€

Axelsen and Rohde made their relationship public in 2018 even though they have known each other for a long time.

Axelsen missed out the ongoing DANISA Denmark Open 2020 as he is recovering from an ankle surgery. The recovery time proved to be a blessing in disguise for Axelsen who got to be present at the time of the birth of his daughter.

This priceless moment is something many top badminton players tend to miss out due to prior career commitments.
