July 14, 2004|By Sandra McKee

Tennis Hall of Famer and Baltimore native Pam Shriver, 42, has given birth to a baby boy.

Baltimore tennis fans have followed Shriver's career since she was a child and have shared her on-court successes as well as news of off-court joy and sadness. They knew of her boyfriends and of her sister Marion's illness and death. They rejoiced with her over her marriage to Joe Shapiro and shared her pain at his death.

When she married George Lazenby, 63, who played James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, fans again wished her well as she talked about her dream of becoming a mother.

At 11:59 p.m. Monday, George Samuel Lazenby weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces.

And, true to form, Shriver, who lives in California, shared the news, letting everyone know shortly after midnight via a pre-arranged e-mail. "[We're] thrilled and everyone is well," she wrote.
