Tennis hall of famer Serena Williams and her partner Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has given birth to a baby girl.
The 23-time grand slam winner was admitted to the St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach on Wednesday.
News of the birth came as her sister Venus prepared to go out on court at the US Open.
“Obviously I’m super-excited,” Venus said. “Words can’t describe it.”
The couple are yet to confirm the birth themselves but Serena’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, tweeted: “I am so happy for you and I feel your emotion.”
He added: “Btw … I wish you a speedy recovery… we have a lot of work ahead of us.”
