Serena Williams isn’t holding a tennis racket in her latest selfie, but her belly that’s carrying her first child.
The tennis star is 20 weeks pregnant and that’s exactly how she captioned the cute shot. With “20 weeks.”
For some reason she has deleted the picture but her publicist Kelly Bush Novak has confirmed to ESPN that she is pregnant and expecting her first baby this fall with fiance Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit.
In December, she announced her engagement to Ohanian in a poem on his site.
“I came home. A little late,” she wrote. “Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own ‘charming.’ Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
The tennis champion holds the record for having won more Grand Slam titles than any other player in the Open Era.
