She's a tennis champion, a fashion designer, and a Beyoncé-approved bride-to-be. But one of the greatest athletes in the entire world is about to take on another huge role: Serena Williams is going to be a mother. Williams' spokesperson confirmed to Bustle that she is expecting a baby in the fall. This will be the tennis star's first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian. Williams announced her engagement to the Reddit co-founder in December 2016. Besides wondering about the baby's name and whether he or she will be a tennis prodigy, fans of the Grand Slam queen must be curious about Williams' due date.
The 35-year-old broke the internet on Wednesday, April 19 after posting a photo of herself posing on Snapchat in a yellow one-piece with the caption, "20 weeks," which would make Williams half-way there. Twenty weeks from mid-April would be around early September, so fans should be on the lookout for a little tech wiz or tennis star at the end of the summer.
Although the mere fact that the Compton native is pregnant has hearts racing, what's even more impressive is that the accomplished athlete was with child when she won the Australian Open in January 2017. Talk about a Wonder Woman!
Now that Williams has aced the tennis world, juggling a wedding and a new baby should be no sweat. (Kidding!) Although the tennis phenom has stayed mum on her wedding plans, hopefully she'll give the world a peek into her upcoming nuptials and baby preparations before her two big days.
