Serena Williams Pregnant: Tennis superstar Serena Wiliams announced she is five months pregnant on Wednesday with a photo of herself in a swimsuit showing off her baby bump.
“20 weeks,” she captioned the image on Snapchat Wednesday after posting a series of photos from a seemingly tropical getaway.
US Open organizers wished the star a big congratulations shortly after she revealed the news with a celebratory tweet.
“Serena Williams will have a new pride & joy to hug and call her own soon! Congratulations on the exciting baby announcement!” the post read.
Williams, 35, is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33. The US Open champion documented her whirlwind engagement on Reddit back in December with a poem.
Ohanian popped the question during an impromptu trip to Italy. He proposed at a restaurant in Rome at the same table where the duo first met on a lunch outing in 2015.
“This time he made it not by chance /But by choice / Down on one knee / He said 4 words And /isaidyes,” she wrote at the time, using the classic Reddit terms.
Ohanian, a Brooklyn native, also posted to his website at the time of the proposal with the line, “she said yes.”
Williams and the techie began dating in October 2015 and didn’t discuss their relationship publicly until the engagement news bombshell.
On Monday, Williams shared an adorable snap of her fiancé holding her up in his arms on a beach.
Before finding hapiness with Ohanian, Williams dated rapper Common on-and-off for about two years before splitting in 2010 and was also rumored to be dating tennis coachPatrick Mouratoglou, NBA star Amar’e Stoudemireand rapper Drake.
The star was a few weeks pregnant when she beat her sister Venus to win the Australian Open back in January.
