Serena Williams welcomes her first child- and it’s a girl!

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Congratulations, Serena Williams!

The tennis champ and her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, have welcomed their first child into the world.

On Friday, September 1, at a hospital in Palm Beach, Florida, Williams gave birth to a baby girl, according to Us. 

Williams accidentally announced her pregnancy on Snapchat back in April when she posted a picture of herself with her bump announcing that she was “20 weeks” along.

“On social media you press the wrong button and … 30 minutes later, I missed 4 calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird,'” she explained to Gayle King during a TED conference in Vancouver only days after the accidental announcement.

Williams and Ohanian announced their engagement last December but have not yet set a date for a wedding.  The two met at a hotel in Rome, Italy by chance when Ohanian was in town for a conference and Serena for a match, and exchanged numbers platonically.
