“Serena Williams won the Australian open pregnant. Idgaf who you think the greatest athlete ever is. They didn’t win a major title pregnant.”
Another quipped, tweeting, ”
Serena Williams won a grand slam while she was pregnant so every man should probably shut up about everything forever.”
The news of Serena’s baby bump came to light as the star took to Snapchat where she shared a close up photo of her growing bump.
Fans can now make sense of the many pull outs of several tournaments since beating sister Venus in January at the Australian open for her 23rd grand slam title. Last month the Ms Williams pulled out of Indian Wells and Miami Open citing a knee injury.
The 35 year old tennis champion announced last year of her engagement to fiancé Alexis Ohanian, a co-founder of Reddit.
Having conquered the world of tennis, Serena can be said to have achieved all milestones she could ever imagine with the news of her baby on the way.
Fans have no doubt the Tennis goddess will also be a great mum. A twitter user wrote,
@serenawilliams !! You will be such an amazing mother and I wish your family health and happiness for the best journey in the world
