The tennis queen just scored the most important win of her life: motherhood.
However, her fans won, too. They no longer had to wait for an epic gender reveal. Serena's sister Venus did the rest of the world a favor by revealing the sex of her sister's baby. A Eurosport reporter had asked her what her sibling's child would call her, to which Venus cheekily replied, "She's going to call me 'favorite aunt.'" Her slip-up is reminiscent of Serena's own accidental announcement that happened not too long ago. When the Olympic champion was on Snapchat, she shocked everybody with her pregnancy news.
While people were still wondering whether Selena and Drake were an item or not, she was already a mommy, not to mention a fiancée. "Serena, 35, and her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, are expecting their first child together," an Us Weekly article says. The medalist's engagement was announced late last year, so fans can probably expect a wedding within a couple of years. After all, they look like they're head-over-heels in love. Now, all they need is their baby to complete their growing family. However, a marriage and baby carriage won't stop Serena from playing. After she gives birth, she wants to further her career.
"The athlete's rep Kelly Bush Novak confirmed to Reuters that Serena is taking maternity leave, but she will be back on the court next year," the article continues. Her enemies better practice extra hard. When Serena makes her comeback, her snapback will be a force to be reckoned with. Not only will she be serving looks, but she'll also be serving major game. She's not just on the court for herself; she'll be on the court for her daughter, a little girl who will always have the number-one spot in Serena's heart.
