Tennis star Serena Williams hints she is pregnant in Snapchat selfie


Williams took to Snapchat on Wednesday to share a photo of her tiny baby bump while wearing a yellow one-piece swimsuit, and her caption made us realize that this is more than just a food baby.

Williams, 35, announced she was engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in December.

Former world No.1 Victoria Azarenka gave birth to her first child Leo on December 20 and is planning to return to the sport at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford at the end of July.

"I Said Yes", Williams titled a thread.

It's interesting that Williams shared the happy news on Snapchat.

The star was a few weeks pregnant when she beat her sister Venus to win the Australian Open back in January. There was no official confirmation by her representatives.

"This just adds another dimension to Serena the person", said Jim Andrews, senior vice president with IEG, a WPP Plc unit that tracks sponsorship spending.

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, 27, won the Indian Wells and Miami titles in March of previous year before missing the rest of the season after announcing she was expecting a baby in December.

The #2 tennis player in the world pulled out of recent tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami citing knee injuries, but clearly it was something else.

A congratulatory tweet from the Women's Tennis Association was also deleted. Austin asked. "We've seen a lot of great great champions come back after having a child and it really comes down to her motivation".

"I've had people look down on me, put me down because I didn't look like them - I look stronger", she explained. "It feels good", she said during a press conference. Her record of 39 major titles puts her third on the all-time list and second in the open era: 23 in singles, 14 in women's doubles, and 2 in mixed doubles.
