According to US Weekly, she gave birth on Friday at a hospital in Palm Beach, Florida. The name of the child has not been released.
This is the first kid for Serena and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
Back in April, Serena accidentally shared the news that she was expecting by posting a pic on Snapchat stating she was 20 weeks along.
Serena and Alexis were engaged in December 2016 and have yet to reveal a wedding date.
Meanwhile, Serena’s sister Venus Williams not only became an aunt, but she also advanced to the fourth round at the US Open after beating Maria Sakkari of Greece on Friday.
Congratulations all around.
