Serena Williams and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, have been engaged since the end of 2016, and through Snapchat Wednesday morning, Williams announced that she is pregnant.
Some are questioning if this is true because she has since taken down the photo, so she might have been teasing the world, but this hasn’t stopped her fans from discussing one major part of this pregnancy announcement.

In William’s original post, the caption states that she is 20 weeks pregnant. If this is true, that would mean that she won the Australian Open in January while pregnant.
She WON while carrying a mini Serena inside her tummy.
Note: this does not mean that I think she is having a girl. I’m simply saying she won while having a mini-her nestling inside her, and in some roundabout way, an adult Serena and a baby Serena collectively won the title together, and that’s just crazy and making my brain hurt.
Also note: I realize that only the adult Serena won the title (it’s impossible for her baby to win a title, I’m not that crazy), but for the sake of the argument, let’s roll with it.
People on twitter lost their minds at this revelation that she was pregnant while completely dominating the tournament. Here are some of the best tweets:
