35-year old Serena Williams is one of the most famous athletes in the world, with numerous titles and Olympic gold medals.
A source close to Serena confirmed to Us Weekly that the 35-year-old tennis superstar gave birth to a baby girl on September 1, 2017, after being admitted to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Palm Beach, Florida.
This is the first baby for both Serena and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. A producer with the Florida-based WPBF television station cited hospital sources as saying Williams’ daughter weighed in at six pounds and 13 ounces (3.09 kilograms). Celebrity magazine US Weekly cited an unnamed source close to the tennis star confirming the birth.
Serena and Alexis announced their engagement on December 29, 2016. The famous athlete told the good news to the world via a Reddit post written like a poem and featuring a cartoon of the couple at the top. The two had been dating since the fall of 2015, though they had kept their relationship mostly out of the spotlight.
