A tweet by a comedian/comedy writer named Travon Free summed it up nicely: "Serena Williams won a grand slam while she was pregnant so every man should probably shut up about everything forever".

Serena Williams has always been lovely.

The 35-year-old tennis champion flaunted her baby bump while attending this year Met Gala in NY with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.

During the same interview with King, Williams made very clear that she wasn't one to settle, and that marrying Ohanian meant something very special to her. Sure, she also showed off her bump last week on Instagram when she posted a powerful letter to her future child. "I can't wait for you to join the players box next year".


"My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn't know I had", Williams wrote. My number one, @Serenawilliams, is pregnant (she announced officially earlier today) and I'm so excited to meet the little one. "I'm really good", Alexis, who's the co-founder of Reddit, told André.

"I knew that at that moment, it was important for me to just focus", she said. "Can I play? I know it's very risky in the first 12 weeks or so, so I had a lot of questions".

Serena recently revealed she had actually accidentally announced her pregnancy.

Williams' publicist has confirmed that the star athlete does indeed have plans to return to the circuit next year.

Williams and Ohanian still have a few months before the baby arrives.
