Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has revealed he wants to have a big family with partner Costeen Hatzi.

The 27-year-old has previously said he hopes to have a baby with Hatzi in 2023, but it looks like he doesn’t want to stop at just one.

Kyrgios, who is recovering from knee surgery, asked fans to send him some “fun” questions on Instagram on Saturday.

One fan asked, “how many kids do you want” to which Kyrgios responded “four” with a picture of him and Hatzi.

It follows on from a similar Q&A session last year when one user – who appeared to be Hatzi – posted, “I love you when are we having babies.”

Kyrgios had a simple response: “Next year,” adding two emojis – a pair of eyes and a wedding ring.

The pair began dating in late 2021 and always appear loved up with Kyrgios crediting Hatzi for making his life a lot better.

They also made headlines last week when video taken from fixed cameras in the player warm-up area at Melbourne Park caught the pair in a steamy embrace.

In another intriguing answer, Kyrgios said he would “love” to coach or mentor someone and he named young Danish star Holger Rune as the player he wants to help.

The 19-year-old, who Kyrgios previously called “one of the best talents that we have in the sport”, is already ranked 10th in the world but suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Andrey Rublev in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Kyrgios was forced to withdraw from his home grand slam due to a knee injury.

He had an arthroscopic procedure to clean up his lateral meniscus and remove a paralabral, leaving him in a full leg brace.

The photos he shared on his Instagram account document the immediate aftermath of the procedure, which he said was needed to prolong his career.

He shared an image of himself lying in bed, one of his leg in the brace, and one of him standing up in his brace with the aid of crutches, which was captioned, “Day 1 was f*****”.

Kyrgios was forced to pull out of the tournament on day one, having tried everything to be fit for his first-round match.

At the time, he posted a message to his fans about what he was going through.

“I’ll be doing everything I can to get back to my best,” he wrote.

“To the real ones checking in and sending the vibes … I love you.”
