Being seven months pregnant seems like a great excuse to sit down, put your feet up and demand that someone rub them. If you’re Serena Williams, though, LOL at that.
Williams is in her third trimester, and that isn’t stopping her from killing it on the tennis court just as hard as she always has. She posted a video to Instagram that shows her smashing balls around like the total killer she is. Her belly is noticeably huge, and it’s not slowing her down one single bit.
Really, though, did we expect anything less from Williams? Now that we think about it, no. No, we did not.
This is the first baby for Williams, who announced she and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, were expecting in April. She later revealed that she didn’t even mean to make the announcement — she revealed her pregnancy by accidentally posting the wrong selfie to Snapchat: one showing her posing in a yellow bathing suit that was captioned, “20 weeks.”
“I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m going,” Williams explained at the 2017 TED Talks Conference. “I didn’t tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I’d been saving it. Every week I just take a picture and save it and I’ve been so good about it and this was the one time I slipped, but it’s OK. On social media, you press the wrong button and… 30 minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’ But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to tell people].”
Now we just can’t wait to see what Williams’ baby can do on the tennis court — after birth, of course.
