There's about to be a lot more love in Serena Williams's court. (We had to.)
The tennis star announced her pregnancy with her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, in a subtle Snapchat on Wednesday. Williams showed off her baby bump on the social-media app, posting a picture of herself wearing a yellow bathing suit, captioning the Snap "20 weeks." (It seems she and Ohanian are currently vacationing on a beach at the moment.) While reps for the couple haven't confirmed the news, fans are already in a tailspin that the 23-time Grand Slam is expecting. A few have even calculated that the timing of her pregnancy means Williams won the Australian Open in January while being pregnant.
Talk about a legend.
Williams' spokesperson, Kelly Novak, confirmed the news shortly after the baby bump was revealed — and the couple has a Fall baby on the way!
It is surprising that Williams shared the happy news on Snapchat. After she and Ohanian were engaged in Rome in December 2016, the athlete shared the news—where else?—via a poem on Reddit.
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” the 35-year-old penned. “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.”
The couple began dating in 2015. This will be the first child for both.
Most recently, Williams has been teasing fans with glimpses of her and Ohanian's super-romantic moments as well as a tiny peek at what could be her wedding dress. But she hasn't confirmed many details about the ceremony—not even if sister Venus will serve as maid of honor. And now we'll have to see if Williams and Ohanian wait until post-baby to tie the knot or if she will show us some of the best pregnancy wedding style since Ciara, Alicia Keys, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
