Serena Williams sparked hours of frenzied speculation on social media after she posted a picture showcasing her 20-week baby bump on Snapchat, only to delete it hours later. The picture went viral, sending twitteratis into an overdrive.

Pregnancy confirmed

Serena Williams is expecting a baby this year, her spokesperson confirmed hours after the tennis star hinted at the development in a Snapchat post.

Los Angeles-based publicist Kelly Bush Novak said in a statement, "I'm happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this Fall. While Williams won't play again this year, she looks forward to returning in 2018."

Why a superwoman?

If Williams is 20 weeks into her pregnancy, that means she was already expecting when she won her record-setting 23rd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January- claiming the title and beating her elder sister Venus in the final.
