One of the best tennis players in the history of the sport, Serena Williams, is all set to become a proud mother. Reports suggest that Serena Williams is three months pregnant and the new was broken by not a gossip website but the czarina of the tennis herself through Snapchat picture.
The photo was released on Twitter after being shared on Snapchat Wednesday, April 19. The tennis star showed her minor baby bump, usual at this time of pregnancy, in a bright yellow bathing suit.
The Snapchat photo released on Twitter was accompanied by a small, two words, sentence “20 weeks”. The tennis star was looking her gorgeous self, content and happy to be the first time mother at 35-years of age.
A Sports Illustrated news later said that the athlete deleted the image shortly after posting it on Twitter. But it was enough for her followers to share it so many times that it was an exercise in futility. Within a few minutes her picture with the minor baby bump was almost everywhere in media and social networking sites.
It must be kept in mind that Serena Williams is engaged to Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian. The two have been dating since October 2015 and tried to keep their affair a secret. Williams who is not known to mince words has been all praise for her beau. In a January post-match conference, Williams’ gushed about her husband-to-be, saying, “He’s incredibly — a really nice person,” she said. “I think he definitely treats everyone the same, which is really cool to see. Really, really nice to see.”
It really seems incredible to know that the athlete is five months pregnant. This means that Serena was pregnant even when she won the Australian Open in January. It may be true that she might have not realized her pregnancy at that time and realized her pregnancy only later. Otherwise she might have not taken risk to play the game at such high level, risking her life and the life of the fetus.
