Tennis champion, Serena Williams, has announced she is 20 weeks pregnant, she won the Australian Open in January.

The champ has not played tennis since the Australian Open, when she would have been about 10 weeks pregnant, citing a knee injury as her reason to withdrawal from the BNP Paribas Open and the Miami Open.

Williams hinted of her pregnancy on Snapchat, posting a photo of herself appearing to show off her stomach with the caption “20 weeks”.

While she was quick to remove the photo from her account it was screen snapped and, her publicist has since confirmed the news she is pregnant.

Massive congratulations! That is pretty amazing to be winning the Australian open while battling through the first trimester. She did that well.  I was curled up on the couch for most of the first trimester of both my pregnancy’s.

  • she is an athlete and she would have been a little bit fitter than most so hence her body can cope well


  • Congratulations.


  • It’s time for her to withdraw from tennis to ensure she doesn’t get injured at all.
    I hope this isn’t just a stupid hoax, a photo that has been photoshopped


  • Way to make the rest of us look bad. When I was ten weeks I fell asleep face down on the bench at work and spewed in the garden next to the post office. She goes and wins the aus open.

    Lol. Nah. Good on her. She’s an incredible woman and a great role model.

    • I can relate to the vomitting – not a good feeling at all. :(


  • Good on her and congratulations! She is an incredibly fit and strong woman.


  • I was going to say this appeared and disappeared just as quick so it could be a prank, but it’s since been confirmed. Bit worrying she played, and won, tennis when approx 10 weeks along :/


  • Impressive to have played (and won) the Aussie open at 8 weeks pregnant!


  • Serena is a favourite tennis player of mine,wishing her all the best!
