Lleyton and Bec Hewitt's kids aren't babies anymore. They're all grown up.

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

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 wife Bec Hewitt.

Bec and Lleyton met at a charity tennis tournament in 1999. Talking to Stellar Magazine last year 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.

Bec is a former Home and Away star but she quit television to support the sporting career of her husband and to be a full-time mum for their three children. The couple also moved to the Bahamas for seven years for Lleyton’s work, however have returned to their Melbourne home.

In July last year Bec also announced that she was returning to TV to host a travel series Hello World for the Nine Network.

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

Now, in 2019, the kids are grown up and all seem to have emerging passions. Here's what they look like now:

Mia Hewitt, 14

Mia Hewitt appears to be interested in modelling with her mum often posting headshots of her daughter to her Instagram.

Celebrating her 14th birthday, Lleyton shared a photo of Mia taking a selfie, and yikes, we feel old. Unlike the other two Hewitt children, Mia is the only one to have her Instagram on private.

In July 2019, Bec posted this photo from Paris Fashion Week, and the mother and daughter are difficult to tell apart.

Bec also posted a sweet tribute to her daughter in November last year for her birthday.

"I’m so grateful to have her in my life everyday! I’m a real believer that our kids are here to teach us as much as we teach them! I am always learning from Mia! How to be patient, how to be positive and how to be a better person," the television presenter said of her daughter.

Cruz Hewitt, 11

Cruz Hewitt evidently is keen on playing tennis, frequently posting photos of him playing the sport on Instagram, where he has nearly 10,000 followers.

Last year he even played his first tournament and more recently he practised against former World No. 1 Rafael Nadal, naturally.

Cruz can often be seen in 20-year-old Alex De Minaur's box with his dad, who is the young Aussie's mentor.

Ava Hewitt, 9

Their youngest child Ava, nine, is an avid dancer and is more flexible than seems normal, but hey this is a family of extreme athleticism. According to her Instagram bio, Ava has also moved into TV, film and modelling, so I guess what we're saying is, watch this face.

She also has over 6,500 followers on Instagram AND she met Romeo Beckham (AKA the son of Victoria and David Beckham) at Wimbledon this year... Go figure.

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