Tennis Great Serena Williams Is Expecting Her First Child


April 19, 2017

It looks like one of the greatest tennis players of all time is about to embark on a new journey of motherhood. Today, Serena Williams took to her Snapchat to announce that she’s “20 weeks” pregnant with her first child.



The news comes a few months after Williams announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. 

As the congratulations started to pour in, many couldn’t help but to notice that 20 weeks along means that Williams was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January. The win marked Williams’ 23rd grand slam singles title, which is more than any other female and male tennis player in the history of the Open Era.


 Congratulations Serena on your new journey into motherhood!
