Tennis star Serena Williams is pregnant with her and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian's first child! She shared the good news – "20 weeks pregnant" – on Snapchat. She later deleted the post, but as everyone knows, nothing really gets removed from the internet.

Serena's spokeswoman, Kelly Bush Novak later on confirmed the pregnancy. "I'm happy to confirm that Serena is expecting a baby this fall," Kelly said in a statement. She also added that Serena won't be competing in any matches this year.

And as if she wasn't already badass enough, she won the Australian Open 2017 tournament in January with child.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion got engaged to Alexis in December last year. So far, wedding plans are being kept under wraps, so we'll just have to keep a close eye on social media for clues.
