The whole world knows Serena Williams is an athletic superstar who's constantly kicking butt on the tennis court. But soon, she'll also be one of the globe's most famous mamas! The tennis champ took to Snapchat this morning to reveal that she and her fiancé Alexis Ohanian have a baby on the way. She wrote that she's "20 weeks" on a mirror selfie, in which she's flaunting her growing baby bump in a hot yellow one-piece bathing suit. So awesome!

Williams and Ohanian have been engaged since December, and fans learned about the soon-to-be union via a poem that Williams posted to Reddit. "I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome," she wrote. "To escort me to my very own 'charming.' Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes."
