Between the Grand Slam titles, money, fame, a clothing line, and endorsements, what do you give the greatest athlete her sport has ever seen when she has everything?

You get Serena Williams a card congratulating her on the birth of her baby girl.

Flashback to April 2017 when the record-breaking tennis champion announced to the world that she and fiancee Alexis Ohanian were expecting their first child. It was three months after the 35-year-old  won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title, the Australian Open, and she did it eight-weeks pregnant.

Ohanian, who is the co-founder of Reddit, posted the announcement after what many have called an “accidental Snapchat” by the Queen of the Court four days earlier.

 

 

Serena actually gave birth on Sept. 1, but waited nearly two weeks to share a photo of her beautiful baby girl with the world.

The news was out almost immediately, especially with her A-list friends and other tennis pros joining in to share in Williams’ and Ohanian’s joy.

 

 

Tweets from the tennis world, where Williams is understandably highly respected, came pouring in.
