Serena Williams gave birth to a beautiful baby girl today at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, was right alongside her to welcome their new bundle of joy.
Williams’ delivery fell right in the middle of the U.S. Open; could this be an omen that their new daughter will become a tennis pro? We certainly hope so.
WPBF-25 news producer Chris Shepard announced on Twitter, “Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well.” This is the couple’s first child.
Williams proved to be unstoppable throughout her pregnancy, winning the Australian Open while pregnant and posing nude for this amazing Vanity Fair cover:
Nothing on but a body chain? So on trend.
Williams has said she plans on quickly bouncing back and returning to tennis. She demonstrated her motivation to stay on top in the tennis world by practicing throughout her entire pregnancy.
With 23 Grand Slam singles titles under her belt, our money’s on her.
