A new little athlete appears to be on the way for Serena Williams and her fiance, Alexis Ohanian.
In a photo shared to her Snapchat, the 35-year-old tennis star hints that she’s pregnant with her first child. Posing in front of a mirror in a bright yellow bathing suit showing off her growing baby bump, Williams captioned the photo: “20 weeks,” confirming she’s now 20 weeks along in her pregnancy.
The tennis star deleted the Snapchat post a few minutes after it was posted, however. Perhaps she meant to post it to Reddit first.
A rep for Williams has reportedly confirmed the pregnancy to TMZ, “I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this Fall.”
Williams opened up about this wonderful time in her life on Instagram. “My Dearest Baby, you gave me the strength I didn’t know I had,” she wrote.
My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can't wait to meet you. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you…. once again today. On @alexisohanian bday. 😉 from the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one. -Your Mommy
The renowned athlete and fashion designer is currently engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who proposed to Williams back in December 2016. They, of course, chose to make the engagement announcement on Reddit, revealing a photo of her stunning sparkler along with an adorable poem Williams penned describing how the proposal took place.
While Williams has remained fairly private about her relationship to the tech entrepreneur, she shared a glimpse into their love life with a sweet beach photo posted to her Instagram.
