In a conversation with Gayle King at the 2017 Ted Talks Convention, Serena Williams revealed that her Snapchat selfie unveiling her 20 week baby bump was actually 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. I didn’t tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I’d been saving it.
The tennis star went on to explain that she discovered that she was pregnant two days before the Australia open. Meaning that she triumphed at the Australia Open without dropping a set in the first trimester of her pregnancy. Talk about Black girl magic.
