Tennis star Serena Williams is pregnant: report0:45
Tennis superstar Serena Williams on Wednesday appeared to suggest she is pregnant, posting a photo of herself in a bathing suit on the social media site Snapchat with the caption "20 weeks." Zachary Goelman reports.
TENNIS superstar Serena Williams has taken to Snapchat to announce she is pregnant.
The 23-time grand slam singles champion posted a picture overnight, showing off a prominent baby bump with the caption “20 weeks”.
That means Williams was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
The 35-year-old announced her engagement to tech entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian, best known as the co-founder of Reddit, in December.
Williams’ pregnancy is exciting enough, but the news that she was pregnant during the year’s first grand slam has left fans in awe.
Among active tennis players, Williams holds the most major titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined. More importantly, she’s hot on the heels of Margaret Court’s all-time grand slam singles titles record of 24.
