American professional tennis star, Serena Williams announced yesterday that she is expecting her first child with her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, Reddit co-founder.
The 35-year-old tennis champion posted a side profile shot of herself in a yellow swimsuit on Snapchat with a caption that read “20 weeks” before deleting it.
Serena Williams’ 20-weeks pregnancy suggests that she was about eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
This implies that she will not likely play again in 2017, and probably miss the year’s remaining three grand slams — the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open.
According to her publicist, Serena would likely return to the tour in 2018.
