Tennis great Serena Williams hinted on Tuesday that she is expecting her first child, posting a photo of herself on Snapchat captioned “20 weeks”.
The photo captured by US media, shows Williams in a yellow swimsuit with what appears to be a baby bump.
Williams, 35, has not played since beating her sister Venus in the final of the Australian Open in January to clinch a record 23rd Grand Slam singles title.
She cited a knee injury in pulling out of tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami in March.
In December she announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, first sharing that news on the Reddit social media site.
