Congrats Serena-IT’S A GIRL! Normally this time of year tennis great Serena Williams is consumed with winning the U.S. Open, but this year she was too busy with another labor of love–giving birth to her baby. Serena delivered her beautiful 6 pound, 14 ounce baby girl on Friday. Williams and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohania gave birth to their first child at a hospital in Palm Beach, Florida. The 35-year old Williams took a hiatus from tennis this year to focus on her pregnancy, but the tennis world has not forgotten her judging from this post from the U.S. Open…
Congratulations to @serenawilliams for giving birth to a baby girl!
