Serena Williams Announces Pregnancy on Snapchat

In December she announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, first sharing that news on the Reddit social media site.

Williams posted a picture of the two on a beach on Monday. She is ranked No. 2 in the world but will return to No. 1 next week despite the absence.

If Williams is pregnant, she will be the second top player in less than a year to take time away from the tour to have a baby.

If the news is true, Williams would have won the Australian Open back in January while pregnant; the Open was her record-setting 23rd Grand Slam title.

The 2012 Olympic Gold medalist (she has also won three Gold medals in doubles with Venus) has won the Miami Open eight times - most recently in 2015. If she is 20 weeks pregnant, she would have been pregnant during that tournament. She confessed, however, that she and Ohanian have yet to make wedding plans.

The news hasn't yet been confirmed by her team. She ended the sweet poem by adding: "Down on one knee, he said 4 words".

"I'm a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn't really meant for black people".

"He's incredibly - a really nice person", the star gushed of her husband-to-be. "Together we can change the future".

"So Serena cheated", Trevor Noah, the host of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, wrote on his Twitter account.
