American tennis player Serena Williams

Baby-mama to be!

Serena Williams has caused a mass social media storm with the announcement that she is 20 weeks pregnant with her first child!

The tennis superstar is currently female world number 2 in tennis and the announcement led to people figuring out that she must have won the Australian Open roughly eight weeks preggos! If that isn’t awesome, I don’t know what is.

From the start, Serena has been a force to be reckoned with. She has been ranked No.1 in singles on seven occasions by The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and is a four-time Olympic gold medallist.

Serena has won more than $84 million in career prize money, more than any other female athlete in the world.

Just let that soak in.
