Serena Williams dropped a bombshell Wednesday revealing on snapchat that she’s 20 weeks pregnant. The 35-year-old is engaged to Reddit co-found Alex Ohanian with a wedding date still to be announced.
Serena hasn’t played since winning the Australian Open, a title she won while pregnant! And her pregnancy likely means she’s done for the season with the baby expected around the US Open.
Serena will be 36 in September and with a baby, will she be back playing tennis? And she’ll actually return to No. 1 on the WTA next week, going back ahead of Angelique Kerber.
Serena’s BFF Victoria Azarenka recently had her own child, and she expects to return to the tour this summer.
And in an odd twist, Wednesday was also Maria Sharapova 30th birthday. Serena has upstaged the Russian at nearly every turn, was this one last shot?
