The world was treated to some of the best news we’ve had all year. Serena Williams is pregnant!

The tennis legend subtly announced her bundle of joy in a now-deleted Snapchat post. Serena, who is currently on vacation in Mexico, wore a yellow swimsuit that revealed her baby bump. She captioned the photo “20 weeks.”


This would also mean that Serena was pregnant when she won her 23th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January.

Other than the sole Snapchat photo, Serena’s social media has been baby-free. She nor fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, has said anything else regarding the pregnancy.

This doesn’t mean social media can’t comment on Serena’s baby. Twitter erupted with excitement once the news broke. Many are already anticipating the birth of a future tennis champion, while others simply couldn’t handle that Serena and Beyoncé are pregnant at the same time.

It was also noted that Serena announced her pregnancy on “rival” Maria Sharapova’s birthday.

A rep for Serena has also confirmed the pregnancy and revealed she is due in the fall. With her last match in January, the No. 1 tennis star’s 2017 competitive season is finished. However, the plan is to return to the court in 2018.

This is the first child for Serena, 35, and Ohanian, 33. The two became in engaged in December and reportedly started dating in 2015.
