A dancer and a rising tennis star. The lives of Bec and Lleyton Hewitt's three kids.

During his 18-year career in professional tennis, Lleyton Hewitt won 30 career titles earning him a spot in Aussie hearts as one of our most loved athletes.

Being in the spotlight for so long, the public often saw the two-time Grand Slam champion with his children, Mia, Cruz and Ava Hewitt, who he shares with his wife Bec Hewitt.

Former Home and Away star Bec and Lleyton met at a charity tennis tournament in 1999. Talking to Stellar Magazine in 2018, Bec recalled the beginning of her relationship with the tennis star.

“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,” she said.

The couple moved to the Bahamas for seven years for Lleyton’s work, however they have since returned to their Melbourne home.

Since Lleyton retired from singles tennis, we haven’t seen their kids on our screens for a while. Remember these moments when the tennis star would bring his kids onto the court?

Now, the couple's kids are all grown up and each have their own emerging passions. Here's what their lives look like now:

Mia Hewitt, 18. 

Mia Hewitt has shown an interest in modelling, with her mum often posting headshots of her daughter to her Instagram.

But most recently, she was photographed at her graduation ceremony, where she received a Diploma of Branded Fashion Design.

Just like other regular teenagers, Mia started off her career working in retail as a sales assistant for Christian Dior, and she's currently paving a path for herself in the fashion industry.

In 2019, Mia was given the opportunity to attend Paris Fashion Week alongside her mum, with Bec sharing the following photos:

Cruz Hewitt, 15.

Cruz Hewitt has followed in his father's footsteps, showing a keen interest in tennis. The 15-year-old frequently posts photos of himself playing the sport on Instagram, where he has over 18,000 followers.

The young athlete is showing signs of becoming a tennis prodigy just like his dad and was recently granted entry into the Australian Open Junior Championships.

His dad played in the same tournament over 25 years ago, back in 1996 when he was just 14 years old.

Cruz is ranked 199 in the boys ranking for his age group and joins 10 other Australian junior players in the championships.

It's clear his hard work and perseverance are paying off, after he experienced his first win at the Darwin Tennis International.

Ava Hewitt, 12.

Their youngest child, Ava, is an avid dancer and is more flexible than seems normal, but hey this is a family of extreme athleticism. Ava has also moved into TV, film and modelling.

Last year, the pre-teen was nominated for a Kids' Choice Award for her work with Nickelodeon as part of the Nick News Crew. Now, she's putting her energy into dancing, sharing videos of her routines over on Instagram.

All the kids have evidently grown up a lot, but we'll never forget their utterly adorable moments with their dad on court.
