It looks like Serena Williams will be taking an extended amount of time off the tennis court. The 35-year-old professional tennis player just announced she’s expecting her first child with Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian.
She announced the exciting news in a Snapchat photo early Wednesday morning. She wore a yellow one-piece bathing suit that clearly shows off her baby bump, and she captioned the photo, “20 weeks”
Serena and Alexis started dating in 2015, and just one year later in December 2016, they announced via Reddit that they were engaged.
Williams is actually the one who posted the engagement announcement on Reddit. She posted a thread with this sweet message:
“I came home / A little late / Someone had a bag packed for me / And a carriage awaited / Destination: Rome / To escort me to my very own ‘charming’ / Back to where our stars first collide / And now it was full circle / At the same table we first met by chance / This time he made it not by chance / But by choice / Down on one knee / He said 4 words / And / isaidyes.”
Well, congrats to the happy couple! Engaged in December, and pregnant in April! I guess they didn’t care about having a honeymoon, or an empty house for the first year of marriage.
It’s a bold move. We’ll see how it works out. We wish them all the best!
