The happy couple met in 2015, and got engaged in December 2016. 

The Grand Slam champion accidentally announced her pregnancy on Snapchat earlier this year, when she posted a picture of her growing belly with the caption "20 weeks" publicly.

Her rep later confirmed the news, which meant she was eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.

Venus William’s sister recently admitted that becoming a mother would not slow down her ambition, and she was already planning her return to the tennis court.

"I am looking forward to becoming a mother and coming back to the courts already," she told The Telegraph.

"I’m always thinking about what’s next: the next victory, the next trophy."

The 35 year old also kept incredibly active during her pregnancy, saying how important exercise was to her.

"I intend to keep exercising for as long as possible while pregnant," she continued. "I want to baby to be healthy and for that you need a healthy life.

"Also, when I come back to tennis it’ll be better if I’ve kept as fit as possible all the way through the pregnancy rather than having to lose a lot of weight afterwards in order to get fit again. Eating healthily is a must, but being healthy is a lifestyle."
