Serena Williams, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, announced yesterday that she’s pregnant, sending the internet into a frenzy. The tennis superstar dropped the news through Snapchat; the caption “20 weeks” accompanies the photo of Williams in a yellow bathing suit sporting the beginning of a baby bump. Williams, 35, announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit in December.

This announcement comes on the heels of her success at the Australian Open, where she won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title on Jan. 28, while nearly two months pregnant. Williams further proves that women can literally do everything men can do (and do it better, while she's at it). 

Serena Williams is nothing short of a superhero, and people on Twitter agree wholeheartedly.
