You Reddit alright! Tennis champion Serena Williams is expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian.

The world’s top-ranked tennis player took to Snapchat on Wednesday, April 19, to announce her baby news. “20 weeks,” Williams 35, wrote alongside a photo of herself in a swimsuit with her burgeoning baby bump on display.

It’s been an eventful year for the athlete and the co-founder of Reddit, 33, who got engaged in December. At the time, Ohanian memorably surprised Williams with a surprise proposal in Rome.

“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” she wrote at the time on the platform. “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.”

The tech guru added from his end, “(She said yes.) She asked me to draw her something for ‘the future Mrs. Kn0thing’ because she had a Reddit post to make. Keeper.”

My only regret is not pointing my toe sorry coach Garry 🙈

The pair recently enjoyed a romantic trip to the beach, where she took flight in his arms. Williams has shared a few details about looking forward to wedding planning, though her pregnancy now takes priority.

“I do event planning all the time actually,” Serena previously told Australian show The Project. “I do events every year. I do everything from the food to the looks to everything… I think, in a different life, I was a wedding planner. Or just an event planner.”
