Novak Djokovic and Girlfriend Jelena Ristic Are Getting Married Soon (+Wedding Date, Age, Photos)
Novak Djokovic and his pregnant girlfriend Jelena Ristic are getting married soon.
The pair, who have been dating for about eight years, were slated to tie the knot earlier this year in June but postponed the date until after Wimbledon, which Djokovic ended up winning.
The wedding will now be on Wednesday, July 9 at the Montenegrin St. Stefan Peninsula, reported Blic.
Security at the wedding is said to be a high priority, and the guest list has not been released.
Allegedly the list of guests includes Viktor Troicki, Janko Tipsarevic, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Nenad Zimonjic, Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova and other names from the tennis world, Blic said.
Ristic, 28, will be six months pregnant at the wedding. The couple’s first child will reportedly be a boy.
Speaking last week, Djokovic said of his pregnant fiance: “The date is coming closer, the stomach is growing.”

“For us, it’s a new chapter of our lives. We’re full of joy,” he added, reported the Daily Mail.
Roger Federer, whom Djokovic beat at Wimbledon in the final, said that he was asked for parenting advice recently.
“He just asked me how life was on the road, how it is to be a dad. ‘You want to get some information, something you can wrap your mind around. I think he’s super excited. He’s very happy. I’m very happy for them.”
Ristic previously told the Mail: “We are emotional partners. The emotional support we give to each other is very important. ‘It’s the same for me as well. He is very supportive and encouraging of the work that I do.”
