Best Female Tennis Player Serena Williams has confirmed her pregnancy and is expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian this fall.
The 35-year-old American broke the news 12 weeks after winning a record 23 Grand Slam single title in Australian Open on Jan. 28, defeating older sister Venus Williams.
Williams publicist, Kelly Bush Novak said on Wednesday said,”I’m happy to confirm, Serena Williams is expecting a baby by this fall.”
Further, Novak told Reuters that Serena wishes to sit out the rest of the 2017 season and intends to return next year.
Williams announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, a Tech businessman and the co-founder of the front page of the internet– Reddit, in December.
The news of her pregnancy has already taken the world by storm but what’s breaking the internet is the picture she posted seven hours before the official announcement, on Snapchat, which she deleted soon after:
Still cant figure out what’s the catch? (ok! it means either you didn’t pay attention to the first para of the article or you are just….not “Sherlocky” enough!) ( Don’t worry, neither did I)
New York Times have connected the dots for us.
According to them ( or by anyone who can count stones thrown at him/her), if the baby bump selfie with the caption “20 weeks.” posted by Williams is accurate, then Serena won the frigging Australian Open while two months pregnant.
And this will prove that she is the” real wonder woman! (I believe that anyway)
Serena Williams, who regained the world No. 1 ranking after winning the Australian Open in January hasn’t hit courts since then. She even withdrew from the BNP Paribas Open citing pain in her knees. But Williams was set to play in the Madrid Open, starting May 5.
