Serena Williams hints she may be pregnant

Serena Williams hints she may be pregnant

Today, tennis star and occasional Beyoncé backup dancer Serena Williams announced her pregnancy with her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, in a subtle Snapchat on Wednesday. Perhaps she meant to post it to Reddit first.

In early January, Williams headed down under for the Australian Open, and showed off her engagement ring for the first time.

"I'm happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall", Los Angeles-based Bush Novak said. A representative for Williams declined to comment on whether the post was a confirmation that she is pregnant.

She's now the no.2 in the world, and only just won the Australian Open in January of this year. Her only other tournament this year was in Auckland, New Zealand, where she lost in the round of 16. "20 weeks", she captioned the pic.

Victoria Azarenka, the former world No1 and two-time grand slam champion, announced last week that she will return to the tour in July after stepping away previous year when she became pregnant.

Serena Williams just served the Internet.

The 35-year-old's selfie saw her posing in a bright yellow swimsuit that left very little to the imagination including her growing tum. (Kidding!) Although the tennis phenom has stayed mum on her wedding plans, hopefully she'll give the world a peek into her upcoming nuptials and baby preparations before her two big days.

The post was quickly deleted - yet captured before taken down. Only one woman has won more: Margaret Smith Court, who claimed part of her 24 during the amateur era.

Serena Williams is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33.

She went on to reveal she and Alexis were first introduced in the romantic Italian city, and called Rome "the place where our stars first collided".
