Serena Williams has seemingly announced that she is 20 weeks pregnant. 

The former World No 1 appeared to reveal the news on social media app Snapchat, with a caption reading "20 weeks", although the photo has since been deleted.

The 35 year old won her 23rd Grand Slam in January when she triumphed in the Australian Open final, beating sister Venus in the deciding match in straight sets. 


The next Grand Slam event on the WTA Tour is the French Open which starts on May 28th.

Williams, who announced her engagment to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian at the end of 2016, is one more Grand Slam victory from matching the all time number of individual major titles, which is currently held by Australian Margaret Court who won 24 Grand Slams during her career.

Williams overtook Steffi Graf's Open Era record by winning her 23rd Grand Slam in Australia.
