TURN ON THE SIREN. RING THE BELL. SCREAM UNTIL YOU CAN SCREAM NO LONGER. FOR SERENA WILLIAMS IS PREGNANT. I REPEAT: SERENA WILLIAMS. IS. PREGNANT.
That’s right: The tennis great announced on Snapchat Wednesday that she is 20 weeks pregnant with her first child. Her rep later confirmed to The Huffington Post that she is due this fall.
Even more astonishingly, it means that Williams was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited
To escort me to my very own “charming”
Back to where our stars first collided
And now it was full circle
At the same table we first met by chance
This time he made it not by chance
But by choice
Down on one knee
He said 4 words
For context, here are some of Williams’ other recent Snaps:
What wonderful news amid the chaos that is life.
This post has been updated to include confirmation from Williams’ publicist.
