Serena Williams has revealed that she is pregnant with her first baby!

The tennis champ took to Snapchat to reveal the happy news, posting a photo of her growing bump alongside the caption ’20 weeks’.

Congratulations!

Back in December, Serena revealed that she is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, with the tycoon proposing to Serena in the same Rome restaurant where they first met.

In a fitting tribute to her beau, Serena revealed the exciting news over on her Reddit account, posting a poem that read: “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited.

“Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own ‘charming.’ Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle.

Serena shared this pic on Snapchat.

“At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”

The pair have kept their relationship incredibly private after meeting eachother just over a year ago, with it thought that they first crossed paths at a luncheon.

The 35-year-old star has previously dated the likes of Drake and Grigor Dimitrov, and recently admitted that she wants children.

Serena is a Tennis champ.

She explained: “I definitely want to have kids one day. That’s something I’ve always wanted since as long as I could remember.”

Earlier this year, Serena admitted that she is yet to make wedding plans, revealing hat she hadn’t “thought about it too much” – and considering we now know that she’s had a bun in the oven the entire time, we can’t blame her for being a little bit preoccupied!

Congratulations once again to Serena and Alexis.
