Serena accidentally announced her pregnancy back in April by posting a photo of her baby bump on Snapchat, including the caption, "20 weeks."

She soon confirmed the pregnancy, later revealing that she'd be taking some time off from tennis. However, Serena's expected to resume her pro tennis career sometime in 2018.

Congratulations to both Serena and Ohanian! We can't wait to learn more about your new little bundle of joy!

We know you and your husband will be wonderful parents.
