Serena Williams Confirms Pregnancy!

She's already considered the best women's tennis player of our era, and now Serena Williams will be conquering another milestone after announcing that she is pregnant with her first child!


The pro athlete first set tongues wagging after posting a photo of her subtle bump with the caption '20 weeks' on SnapChat on Wednesday before deleting it.



The news comes just 12 weeks after winning a record 23rd Grand Slam singles title, making the tennis star almost eight weeks pregnant while winning in Melbourne. 


According to reports from the New York Times, Serena's spokeswoman Kelly Bush Novak said that while Williams would miss the 2017 season, the tennis pro would be back to play for the 2018 circuit.


“Serena said that I should make sure if anyone asks that that is clear,” said Bush Novak.



The announcement is the second surprise that Serena has dropped recently, after announcing her unexpected engagement to businessman and the co-founder of Reddit - Alexis Ohanian - in December.


Congratulations Serena!
