Tennis Star Serena Williams Won Australian Grand Slam While Pregnant
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.
Williams’ spokeswoman has told Reuters she will not play again this year, but will return to the WTA circuit in 2018.
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.
By the way, she didn’t even drop a set at the Australian Open.
