Yesterday, world number two and 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams announced that she is pregnant. The 35 year old tennis superstar posted a picture on her Snapchat showing her baby bump with the words “20 weeks”. The pregnancy announcement comes months after her relationship and engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian was made public.
The pregnancy announcement sent social media into a frenzy (as usual). Everyone marveled at the fact that Serena’s pregnancy dates back to when she won the Australian Open back in January. This is definitelya great feat as the early stage of pregnancy is known to be difficult. Serena and Alexis have our heartfelt congratulations.
Some reactions from Twitter:
Serena williams won the Australian open with a fetus inside her….. and you telling me you couldn’t text back because periods ?

Serena Williams is 20 weeks pregnant, which means she won the Australian Open while being pregnant and didn’t drop a single set. The GOAT.
