Update: Serena Williams‘ spokesperson, Kelly Bush Novak, released a statement to the press confirming the news. “I’m happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall.”

Original: Serena Williams seemed to confirm she’s pregnant with her first child on Snapchat but deleted the post moments later.

Williams, who won her history-making 23rd Grand Slam title in January, posted an image on her very active Snapchat account Wednesday, April 19, with the caption, “20 weeks” as she wore a fitted yellow one-piece. The bump on the tennis pro’s usually flat abdomen and her note seemed to indicate she is 20 weeks into a pregnancy.

Her representatives have not issued a statement.

Although 35-year-old Williams, who is engaged to 33-year-old Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, quickly removed the image, many fans excitedly reacted to news of an impending bundle of joy, which also would be Ohanian’s first child.

Others felt delighted about Williams and Beyoncé being pregnant at the same time.

Some remarked on the fact that Williams had been pregnant when she won the Austrailian Open.
