Serena Williams Announced Her Pregnancy on Social Media by Mistake

The media went abuzz when Serena Williams suddenly announced last week on SnapChat that she’s 20 weeks pregnant.

But the tennis superstar revealed on Tuesday that she shared her happy news by mistake. And she even tried taking the photo down, but it was too late.

The star was speaking to Gayle King at a Ted Talks in Vancouver when she revealed that she had intended the photo in a yellow one-piece swimsuit – with the caption ’20 weeks’ – to be a private photo – but she accidentally posted it on social media

The world no. 1 tennis champion said, “I was on vacation, taking time for myself, and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking a picture every week.

“I’ve been just saving it, but you know how social media is — you press the wrong button and…

‘My phone doesn’t ring that much and thirty minutes later, I’d missed four calls. So I picked it up and realized, “Oh no.”‘

Williams shrugged off the announcement casually saying it wasn’t a big deal because she had planned on sharing the news soon anyway.
