On April 19, current world No. 1tennis starring Serena Williams announced her pregnancywith a Snapchat mirror selfiethat showed off her newborn bump.
Naturally, the internet freaked out and then did what the internet does and analyzed the shit out of it.
It didnt take long to realize if Serena was 20 weeks pregnant on April 19, she was already pregnant when she won the Australian Open back in January.
So, yeah, shes a total badass, but we already knew that.
It does appear, however, Serena might not be as dominant on social media as she is on the court.
In fact, the3 5-year-old admitted she wasnt ready to share the news of her pregnancy when she posted that snap she was actually only documenting it for herself.
During a TED conference in Vancouver on Tuesday, Serena told GayleKing,
On social media, you press the incorrect button and 30 minutes later I missed four calls and Im like, Thats weird.
Oops! Its OK, Serena, we have all pressed the incorrect button on our phones and sent things out into the world we didnt mean to. It could have been WAY worse.
I have this thing where Ive been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along Im getting.Ive been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped.
It turns out, she wasnt planning on keeping the secret much longer anyway. She said she was only planning on waiting 5 or 6 more days, and called the revelation a good moment.
She posted a much more official newborn bump photoon Instagram on Monday, captioning the pic,
My Dearest Baby,
You gave me the strength I didnt know I had. You taught me the true meaning of composure and peace. I cant wait to meet you. I cant wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you. once again today. On @alexisohanian bday.from the worlds oldest number 1 to the worlds youngest number 1. -Your Mommy
Her fianc, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, posted his own adorable announcement as well.
Speaking on their relationship, Serena said,
I never felt pressured to get married and I cant say Im the marrying type of person. I love my life, I love my liberty, and I love my career. I always felt I didnt want anything to interfere with that.
But truly, hes very loving and hes very kind. Hes very considerate.
Social media savvy or not, Serena Williams is one incredibly gorgeous and talented mommy-to-be.
