Lleyton and Bec Hewitt’s kids don't look like this anymore – so grown up!

Lleyton and Bec Hewitt’s kids don't look like this anymore – so grown up!

The Hewitt children are growing up fast and look so much like their superstar parents.

Bec and Lleyton Hewitt have been in the spotlight for years, Bec known for her role on Home and Away before she left the hit show over 13 years ago to support her husband’s career and the three children they share – Mia, Cruz and Ava Hewitt.

But before the extravagant marriage to her famous tennis husband almost 14 years ago, Bec was regarded as one of the most famous faces in Australia – releasing an album and out-dancing Pauline Hanson on the first season of Dancing With The Stars.

Lleyton, before retiring in 2016, had an 18-year career of professional tennis, earning over 30 career titles – and easily becoming a beloved sports figure by Australians.

The two met at a charity tennis tournament in 1999, and the actress turned TV presenter for Helloworld says their relationship was a crazy experience for them both.

“It was such a whirlwind, which I think was part of the reason why we ended up with such a lot of attention – because it was after only six weeks that we got engaged,” Bec explained to Stellar Magazine last year.

Since the tennis star’s retirement, we have not seen much of the Hewitt kids, and they have grown up a lot since then.

Mia, who is the oldest of the bunch, is 13 years old now, and deemed by her mother in a sweet Instagram post as a “kind, gentle, intelligent, calm yet bubbly person to be around… I am always learning from Mia.”

 

The middle child and only boy in the Hewitt clan is 10-year-old Cruz, who recently had a hit of tennis against the former World no.1 Rafael Nadal, which he shared to his official Instagram account.

The Lleyton look-alike can be seen often hitting the racket against 19-year-old Alex De Minaur, who is fast becoming an Aussie favourite on the tennis court, and who is a mentor to Cruz.

The youngest, 8-year-old daughter Ava, can usually be seen on her mother’s Instagram, practising and competing in Gymnastics – a natural superstar at the flexible sport.
