We heart this so hard.
Serena Williams had a big announcement for fans on yesterday (Tuesday 19 April): She’s expecting her first child with her fiancé, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.
Serena made the announcement on Snapchat, simply captioning a photo of herself in a yellow one-piece bathing suit with “20 weeks.” In the pic, the tennis champ’s baby bump is just starting to show. She deleted the photo not long after it was posted, but plenty of folks still had time to grab it:
Serena and Alexis have kept their romance pretty low-key, but she announced their engagement via a poem on Reddit (naturally) in December under the title “I said yes.” “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 collided /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 r/isaidyes,” she wrote. (Alexis responded to her poem with this: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”)
The couple have maintained their relationship largely out of the public eye, but Serena has shared a few sweet photos of them on Instagram like these:
Serena has won a whopping 23 Grand Slam titles, but no word yet on whether she’ll do this year’s Grand Slam circuit, which starts in late May with the French Open. Twitter users are already pointing out that this Snapchat post indicates that Serena was likely pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
Serena Williams was pregnant when she won her 23rd grand slam tournament at the Australian Open. And did not drop ONE SET. Let that sink in.

According to E! News, the couple has been together since 2015.
