Serena Williams Opens Up About Pregnancy and Expect Return to the Court

The 35-year-old Serena Williams looks absolutely stunning in Vogue’s September issue. In her accompanying feature, the tennis pro opens up about her pregnancy and whether or not she’ll return to the court after welcoming her first child.

The pregnancy was somewhat of a surprise for Williams and fiancé Alexis Ohanian. Williams discovered she was pregnant while competing in the 2017 Australian open, accidentally announcing the news via Snapchat.

In her interview she told vogue that the pregnancy brought with it a sense of calm saying that once she found out she was pregnant, “I became really calm. I thought, ‘You have to win, but you’re allowed to lose, because you have something to look forward to.’”

Many have raised the question of whether or not Williams will return to the court after the arrival of the baby. The expecting mother told Vogue that her post-baby tennis comeback is already in planning admitting that “[i]t’s hard to figure out what the end of your tennis career should look like. I used to think I’d want to retire when I have kids, but no. I’m definitely coming back.”

Just ten days ago Williams celebrate a star-studded ‘50s themed baby shower. The adorable event took place in West Palm Beach, Florida. Williams was joined by her sister Venus and closest friends, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony and Eva Longoria, all dressed in sweet 1950s attire.
