Serena Williams Shows Off Baby Bump on Met Gala Red Carpet

This January, Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open, surpassing her already remarkable legacy.

The 35-year-old tennis champion is expecting her first child with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, but the pair are in no rush to find out whether they're having a boy or a girl, as they want it to be a "surprise".

Serena's fiance Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian kept a protective arm around his baby mama.

The star confessed the Snapchat which revealed she was 20 weeks along was sent by mistake.

She also added, "For me it's really important to hold women up".

Williams, unfortunately, is not stranger to such discussion, especially about her body. She plans to return to tennis in 2018. The tennis pro later admitted sharing the photo was accidental, but soon after shared an Instagram photo of her growing bump along with a sweet note to her little one. "You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace".

But, Williams chose to push any doubts aside.

Williams' baby is not even born yet, but they are already a target of a racial joke.

When Justine Henin shocked the tennis world with her first retirement in 2008, she was the top player in the sport. She wrote: "My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn't know I had".

Nastase was banned from the remainder of the Fed Cup.

Clearly, Williams and Ohanian are a happy couple, and will soon be awesome parents.
