Tennis star Serena Williams hints she is pregnant in Snapchat selfie

The tennis superstar announced that she's expecting her first child with her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, in a Snapchat photo on Wednesday, April 19.

Williams' selfie featured the court queen posing in a yellow one-piece swimsuit and the simple caption, "20 weeks".

She pulled out of the recent tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami citing a knee injury but was scheduled to play at the Madrid Open next month.

Williams and Ohanian announced they were engaged last December, and for weeks she teased fans who had been asking her to share a pic of her engagement ring. As she sprinted across the court, muscles heaving as she catapulted tennis balls with all the strength and might of a cannonball hurtling across the sky, she was also continuing the human species. She did not drop one set. I'm proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. "To escort me to my very own 'charming.' Back to where our stars first collided".

Williams has played little outside the Grand Slam tournaments in the last 12 months - at the Italian Open in Rome and the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro last season and at the tournament in Auckland, New Zealand, in early January.

"One of these days I hope to apply this", Williams wrote of the lessons in the book.

"He's incredibly - a really nice person", she told the Daily Mail.

Williams has won 72 career singles championships, is 23-6 in Grand Slam finals and is the two-time defending Wimbledon champ.

Legions of her 8.15 million Twitter followers flooded social media to express their amazement that the 35-year-old had managed to land a record seventh Australian Open crown in January while eight weeks pregnant. Still, at the time, she was much more focused on the Australian Open.

And what's more, even though she is only the number two athlete in the world as of right now, she'll return back to number 1 next week, even though she missed a good number of her practices.
