Melbourne, July 1 : Lleyton and Bec Hewitt will get a little more than they bargained for when it comes to the birth of their baby number two. The couple are expected to fetch around 100,000 dollars for the exclusive interview.
The Hewitts, who initially denied the rumours they were expecting a new baby later confirmed the news to OK! magazine.
In the interview the couple confirmed that they are expecting, and Bec talks of speculation that she is tired of following Lleyton around the world.
The baby, due in January, will be a sibling for the couple's two-year-old daughter Mia, whose birth, conception and early milestones were sold in a reported 1million dollars magazine deal.
The latest tell-all, posed at the Hewitts' luxury Wimbledon rental home, is rumoured in management circles to have netted the celebrity parents 100,000 dollars.
That is the same amount Hewitt was guaranteed to receive in prize money from his fourth-round clash against reigning Wimbledon champion Roger Federer last night, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The couple's manager, David Drysdale, who denied the Hewitts were expecting last week, did not return calls on Monday.
Last Tuesday, he dismissed as "gossip" speculation over Bec's fulsome appearance in a maternity-style top.
"The poor girl can't wear a particular top without being pregnant. I haven't got anything to report on that front," Drysdale said.
Last month, Drysdale also rejected claims the couple confirmed the pregnancy during a medical check-up at North Shore Private Hospital, where Mia was delivered in 2006.
The glossy eight-page spread, in OK! magazine, follows on the heels of the pair's recent complaints over media intrusion into their private lives.
