Just like any expectant mom would do, the tennis star, Serena Williams 35, made the announcement on Wednesday when she showed off her baby bump on Snapchat.
Williams was wearing a yellow swimsuit when added that she was 20 weeks along.
The star has been engaged to a lucky guy by called Alexis 33—Reddit co-founder, since December 2016. Alexis proposed with a large diamond ring, which Serena showed off in January.
Serena had a small pregnant belly, which she showed in the profile.
However, soon after she posted the photo to Instagram stories as well as Snapchat – she deleted it.
Serena spoke glowingly of her husband-to-be.
“He is incredibly a really nice person.” she said adding that, “I think he definitely treats everybody, in the same way, something which is really cool to see—really, really nice to see.”
News of her pregnancy came as a surprise because she has been showing off ‘a flat tummy’ on the social media in the recent weeks.
Williams was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to Oracene Price and Richard Williams, and is the youngest of Price’s five daughters: full sister Venus and half-sisters Lyndrea, Yetunde, and Isha Price.
She moved to LA’s Compton neighborhood while she was still a toddler. But when her career took off, her family moved to Florida.
Today, Serena is one of the most known female athletes around the globe: The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), has ranked her as world No. 1 in singles for seven consecutive occasions—from 2002 to 2017.
The Florida resident also has the most major titles in doubles, singles, and mixed doubles combined compared to other active players.
The tennis ace is very wealthy, too and according to Forbes, she is worth $150m.
Serena made tennis as the focus of her career, although she has featured on several TV shows: ‘The Bernie Mac Show,’ ER and ‘Law & Order—Special Victims Unit, and, oversees a fashion line.
But in early March, she decided to pull out of Indian Wells and Miami, claiming a knee injury. Her last competitive game was the Australian Open final, where she narrowly won a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Venus—her sister.
And now the star will have to take a leave from the game, something which she has hardly done since she began competing as a child.
Hope that this is the ultimate man for the star as, the 22-time Grand Slam champion, was once in love with: Drake, Common, Grigor Dimitrov, Patrick Mouratoglou, Amar’e Stoudemire, Jackie Long, Hosea Chanchez, and Colin Farrell, among others.
Congrats two of you, it is going to be one gorgeous child!
