Hours after Serena Williams seemed to accidentally post photos of her baby bump on Snapchat, the tennis overlord’s publicist has confirmed the impending arrival of her blessed bébé.

Confirming that the 23-time Grand Slam winner is indeed 20 weeks into her pregnancy, rep Kelly Bush Novak said “I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall.”

That means she’ll definitely be out of the upcoming French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, after she’d already taken time off the circuit due to an injured knee.

It also confirms that if she is really 20 weeks along RN, she won the latest Australian Open while about two months pregnant. As if her career wasn’t already filled with the wildest accomplishments.

Opinions are already flying around as to when she’ll return to the court. The BBC’s resident tennis boffin doesn’t think we’ll see her in smashing backhands until the French Open next year, which will take place four months before her 37th birthday.

Knowing her, she’ll be dominating that one, too.
