Serena Williams surprised the world Wednesday when she posted a photo of herself with a baby bump captioned “20 weeks.” The tennis star posted the photo in her Snapchat story then deleted the image causing wild speculation as to if she was pregnant.
Her rep later confirmed that she and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, are indeed expecting their first child in the fall. Kelly Bush Novak tod media outlets, “I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall.”
The spokeswoman also said Serena will be out of the tennis arena, returning in 2018.
She announced in the same surprising fashion in December that she was engaged Alexis, who is co-founder of Reddit.
