Williams, 35, on Wednesday confirmed her pregnancy through a spokeswoman, after posting a picture of herself in a yellow bathing suit on Snapchat social media with the caption "20 weeks".

Williams, who has played professionally for two decades, first gained the No. 1 ranking in 2002 and has held that spot for more than six years in total during her career. "I'm happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall", Williams' spokesperson told CNN in a statement.

Taking to Snapchat, the sportswoman shared the news with her fans by uploading a snap of her growing baby bump.

Just last week, the tennis phenomenon posted a photo on her Instagram of Kelly Rowland and her new book for new moms.

CNN reached out to reps for Williams, her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, and the Women's Tennis Association for comment. The tennis star then described the moment Alexis popped the question to her, revealing the proposal took place at the venue where they first met.

The internet mogul proposed to Serena after 15 months of dating, presenting her with a ring worth an estimated $2 million.
