According to ESPN, in an email on Wednesday, a spokeswoman for Serena Williams confirmed that she is indeed expecting.
However, Twitter was very quick to realize one thing. The 35-year-old won her 23rd Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January. This means that Serena was roughly 8 weeks pregnant at the time she won the trophy!
