Twenty three-time grand slam winner, Serena Williams, is expecting her second child with husband, Alexis Ohanian.

She made the announcement on Monday night at the star-studded Met Gala in New York.

Williams also took to Instagram to share the news in a post captioned: “Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the three of us to the Met Gala.”

The 41-year-old gave birth to her first child Olympia in 2017.

The news of her pregnancy makes the possibility of her returning to competitive tennis action unlikely after she also announced last year that she was “evolving away from tennis”.

Williams has won 23 grand slam titles and is just one short of equalling the record (24) held by Margaret Court. Article by Ntsako Mukhari
