Serena Williams’ online post hints at pregnancy
Is Serena Williams pregnant? It appears so.
On Wednesday morning, the tennis superstar posted a side-shot selfie of herself on Snapchat with the caption ’20 weeks.’
The post was quickly deleted – yet captured before taken down.
Williams, 35, withdrew from ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events at Indian Wells and Miami last month citing a knee injury; she won the Australian Open by beating sister Venus on Jan. 28.
“Sadly, I have to withdraw from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the Miami Open,” said Williams, who lives in West Palm Beach, Florida, on March 7.
