As you surely know, last week Serena Williams leaked her pregnancy news as she took to Snapchat to share a pic of herself at 20 weeks. However, not long after the photo went live, the tennis champ deleted it from the social media app.
Why?? Well, because the Olympic gold medalist wasn’t quite ready to share her happy news with the world!
In fact, Miz Williams’ pregnancy announcement was a total accident. On Tuesday, Serena chatted with Gayle King at the TED conference in Vancouver, where she revealed:
“On social media you press the wrong button and├óΓé¼┬ª 30 minutes later I missed 4 calls and I’m like, ├óΓé¼╦£That’s weird.'”
Oh no! The American athlete continued:
“I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m getting… I’ve been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped.”
Regardless, Serena isn’t kicking herself over the slip up as she was going to make the announcement sometime within that week anyway. The 35-year-old noted:
“It was a good moment. I was only going to wait 5 or 6 more days.”
And it seems as though the starlet is living her best life as she couldn’t help but gush about her “nerdy geek” fianc├â┬⌐, Alexis Ohanian. The A-lister dished to King:
“I never felt pressured to get married, and I can’t say I’m the marrying type of person. I love my life, I love my freedom, and I love my career. I always felt I didn’t want anything to interfere with that. But really, he’s very loving and he’s very kind. He’s very considerate.”
Awwwww. We honestly couldn’t be happier for Serena and Alexis.
Congrats again, you two!
