Well it looks like Serena Williams will be trading in a tennis racket for diapers soon!
The 35-year-old pro-athlete has announced that she is 20 weeks pregnant. Williams, who got engaged to Reddit c0-founder Alexis Ohanian in December, reportedly shared the news via Snapchat early Wednesday.

Serena’s engagement to Ohanian brought out the ugly in people, with many criticizing the sports legend for marrying a White man.
“Noooooo #SerenaWilliams …how could you? How could she do this to us? to black people? to War Room Sports? …How could she do this to me?,” one person wrote on social media. “They merking us with impunity …Serena marrying one of them …yo how? How? HOW? #MakingAmericaGreatAgain”
In early March, Williams pulled out of Indian Wells and Miami due to a knee injury, according to Sports Illustrated.
The pro-athlete, who has won more Grand Slam titles than any other player in the Open Era, had her last competitive match during the Australian Open final. In that match, she beat her sister Venus in a 6-4, 6-4 victory.
Congrats to the lovely couple!
