Famous tennis star Serena Williams has just become a mom. The happy mom and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, have welcomed a baby girl. So, congratulations are in order for Serena and Alexis. Serena welcomed her baby on Friday afternoon, at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. Both the new mom and the baby are healthy and doing fine.
As imagined, Serena enjoyed some special conditions at the medical center. It has been reported that she was admitted to the medical center on Wednesday. She booked the entire first floor and security was enhanced. The pair previously revealed that they were sure they will have a baby girl. They also revealed that Serena had a very good pregnancy and actually she had only healthy cravings, including zucchini and asparagus. Serena also said she enjoyed a lot her pregnancy.
This is the first child for Serena and Alexis. The baby birth news were first shared on Twitter by Chris Shepherd. “Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well,” the post said. Of course, immediately after the star started to receive a lot of congratulations from a series of people, including famous singer Beyonce.
Beyonce’s message was quite simple, but beautiful. The singer shared a photo of Serena during pregnancy with the message “Congratulations Serena!” Beyonce also recently welcomed babies, as she gave birth to twins. The singer is mom to three children now.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian have been a couple since 2015. The pair allegedly got engaged in 2016, while they were enjoying a romantic vacation in Rome. The pair officially revealed that they are going to welcome a baby in April, and as imagined Serena had to take some time off from her very successful tennis career. However, the star claimed that she will get back to the tennis court very soon after becoming a mom.
Without a doubt, fans expect that to happen, but it is yet to see when Serena will be back.
Serena Williams is set to become a mom for the first time and it surely seems that the star is very happy. The famous tennis champion decided to share her feelings towards her pregnancy and her unborn child in a social media post. She shared a photo on Instagram of her relaxing on what appeared to be a beach, along with quite an emotional message.
So, Serena Williams is 20 weeks pregnant with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian. The star is surely enjoying her pregnancy as much as possible and wants to share her happiness with her Instagram followers. She shared the new pic along with a message that seems to be addressed to her unborn child.
“My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had,” her message said. “You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can’t wait to meet you,” she added. “I can’t wait for you to join the players box next year,” Serena’s message also said. This means that the tennis player’s fans could rest assured that after welcoming her child, Serena will return to the tennis court.
The star also took this chance to share other things, too. “But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you… once again today,” she said. And the tennis champion also had something to say for the baby’s father, who recently celebrated his birthday. “On @alexisohanian bday. from the world’s oldest number one to the world’s youngest number one. – Your Mommy,” Serena ended her post.
Well, although Serena is enjoying an amazing time in her life, the star was not happy with the latest comments made by a former tennis player, Ilie Nastase. When referring to Serena’ child, he said: “Let’s see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?” Of course, Serena responded and seemed to be very disappointed. “It disappoints me to know that we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peer,” she said.
Sad news for Serena Williams’ fans. The famous tennis player will not play at the Indian Wells. Without a doubt, this is not good news for the BNP Paribas Open, either, considering that Serena is the most famous name when it comes to female tennis and the number 1 female tennis player.
So, Serena announced that she will sit out of this major tennis tournament, joining quite an impressive list of Grand Slam singles titlists who would be out of the tennis court this time. This includes Petra Kvitova and of course Maria Sharapova. When it comes to the reason why she will not be playing at this tennis tournament, Selena said that it is all because of a left knee injury which she suffered last year and which prevented her from properly training.
Unfortunately for Serena, not being able to attend means that she will most likely lose her title of being the world’s top-ranked female player. Serena also revealed that she will not attend the Miami Open, which follows at the end of the month.
Maria Sharapova is quite obvious that wouldn’t be able to attend, considering that she is still serving a 15-month drug ban. However, the star won’t have to wait much longer before getting back to the tennis court. She will be at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, in April.
Petra, on the other hand, is still recovering after a quite shocking event. The star was stabbed during a home burglary. An intruder attacked her in her home and stabbed her multiple times in 2016. The star had to undergo surgery after the event. She has been working hard to recover and hopefully she will be able to soon return to the tennis court.
Another female tennis player who will be missing the BNP Paribas Open is Victoria Azarenka. However, in this case the news are great, as Azarenka has just become a mom. She give birth to a baby boy, Leo, on December 20, 2016. The star has not revealed the exact moment when she will be able back on the tennis court, but most likely this will happen later in the season.
