Serena Williams has just announced that she is pregnant with her first child! The tennis star shared her happy news in a Snapchat post on Wednesday.

Serena, 35, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, posed in a one-piece yellow swimsuit that showed off her growing bump. She captioned the photo, "20 weeks."

Williams appeared to hint at suffering from morning sickness days ago, sharing a photo of herself in bed to Instagram. She captioned the picture, "Fighting to get up this morning."

Williams and Ohanian have been engaged since December 2016, when he popped the question with a massive diamond ring. The couple had only been dating a little over a year when Alexis proposed.

Serena spoke about her engagement in January, stating, "It feels good. I really haven’t thought about it too much, because I wasn’t even really gonna think about it until after the tournament.

'So, I just keep saying, 'February, I’ll start looking at the bigger picture of my life.' But right now I’m just so focused that this is all I can think about."

The tennis pro also gushed over her fiance Alexis, saying, "He’s incredibly — a really nice person. I think he definitely treats everyone the same, which is really cool to see. Really, really nice to see."

Williams shared a cute photo of herself and her fiance on Monday as they spent time together on the beach. She captioned the sweet snap, "My only regret is not pointing my toe sorry coach Garry."

Serena was actually pregnant when she beat her sister Venus to win the Australian Open back in January, which makes the feat even more impressive.
Williams is ranked by The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) as the No. 1 in singles on seven occasions, from 2002 to 2017. Serena also holds the most major titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined amongst active players.

Fans have started congratulating Serena on her exciting baby news:

User divastar_30 wrote, "Congratulations on your pregnancy!! You will be truly missed this year!! But can't wait to see your beautiful bundle of joy 😘"

Follower cumi31 posted, "Congrats to the beautiful couple! Praying for a healthy baby and blessed marriage ❤❤"

And one unhappy fan added, "I'm so mad.. I bought US open tix just to see you! I'm getting my refund asap if true."
