He posted a photo to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday showing himself holding a tissue as blood dripped from his nose.

Andy, 31, captioned the pic: “When playing with your 10 month old daughter gets a bit too physical!”

They welcomed Edie late last year after announcing just before Wimbledon that a second child was on the way.

Andy said at the time: “We’re both obviously very happy and looking forward to it.”

They’ve chosen to keep Sophia, who was born in February 2016, and Edie away from the spotlight.

Andy previously opened up about fatherhood, saying it takes a priority over tennis.

He told Loose Women last year: “Having children changes your perspective on life, changes your perspective on things, so I feel like I’m appreciating things a bit more now.

“Tennis isn’t the be all and end all, which is a good thing.

“Before, tennis was all I was bothered about, whereas now, the first thing I think about when I get up in the morning isn’t tennis anymore and that’s a good thing.”

Andy and Kim married in Dunblane, Scotland in April 2015 after a nine-year romance.

They first met as teenagers on the tennis circuit; Kim’s dad, Nigel, is a tennis coach and she’d been travelling with him when she first laid eyes on Andy.
