Serena Williams is expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian.

The tennis star announced the happy news on her Snapchat feed, sharing a picture of herself in a yellow swimsuit and cradling her growing bump.

'20 weeks' the caption on the image reads.

The pregnancy reveal comes just a few short months after Serena and Alexis, the founder of Reddit, announced their engagement back in December 2016.

'It feels good,' she said of the union the following month, prior to her appearance at the Australian Open.

'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 couple got engaged in Rome at the same restaurant where they met by chance, and in keeping with her husband-to-be’s work, she announced the happy news in the form of a sweet poem via her personal account on Reddit.

She wrote: ‘I came home late. A little late. Someone had a bad 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. But not by choice. Down on one knee. He said 4 words. And r/isaidyes’.

The tennis superstar is currently ranked world number 1 in women’s tennis singles, having first received the title in 2002. Adding to this, she also holds the most major titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined amongst active players.
