Serena Williams Says Announcing Her Pregnancy on Snapchat Was an 'Accident'!

Serena Williams is spilling more details about her pregnancy!

The 35-year-old tennis star recently shared that announcing her pregnancy was not planned and that it was one big accident.

“Well, actually it was an accident. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m going,” Serena told Gayle King during a Ted Talk conference in Canada. “I didn’t tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I’d been saving it. On social media, you press the wrong button and… Thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’ But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to share].”

Last week, Serena posted a photo on her Snapchat announcing she and her Reddit co-founder fiance Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child together

“Every week I just take a picture and save it and I’ve been so good about it and this was the one time I slipped, but it’s okay,” Serena said.

Serena Williams Fires Back at Former Tennis Star's 'Racist' Remark About Her Upcoming Baby

Serena Williams is speaking out after former tennis pro Ilie Nastase reportedly made a comment about the color of her unborn child.

The 35-year-old tennis player announced last week that she was pregnant with her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian.

On Friday (April 21), Ilie was caught on tape before Great Britain’s Fed Cup stating in Romanian, “Let’s see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?” (via ESPN and the Telegraph)

“It disappoints me to know we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peers,” Serena shared on Instagram on Monday (April 14).

“I want to know what word I used is racist?” Ilie told the Associated Press.

The International Tennis Federation is currently investigating Ilie and has issued a statement that reads: “The ITF does not tolerate discriminatory and offensive language and behaviour of any kind. We are aware of alleged comments made by Romanian captain Ilie Nastase and have begun an immediate investigation so that we have the full facts of the situation before taking further and appropriate action.”
