After a day of speculation, Serena Williams announces that she is expecting her first child. Williams, 35, posted a photo of herself on Snapchat with the caption, “20 weeks.” The photo was later deleted. Williams recently was engaged to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit in a whirlwind announcement in December of 2016.

Williams has not competed since January 28, when the tennis star was already two months pregnant. On returning to the game after she gives birth, it seems that everyone has an opinion. Pam Shriver, the former leading player says, ““For Serena to have her last tournament be winning the Australian Open would be a pretty fitting end to an all-time great career, too,” Shriver said. “Whatever happens, hopefully, it’s happily ever after.”
