It’s the moment Serena Williams’ fans have been patiently waiting for—the tennis champ is in labor.
Williams checked in to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida on Wednesday, according to local news station CBS12. Hospital staff told CBS12 reporterThomas Forester that Williams was induced on Thursday evening and she is now in labor.
According to reports, the hospital’s entire first floor has been cleared for authorized personal only.
In 2016, Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian got engaged and in April, she accidentally revealed her pregnancy on Snapchat much to the delight of fans. (Williams won the Australian Open while pregnant.) Proud dad to be Ohanian often speaks of how lucky he is to be engaged to the tennis superstar.
The couple now reside in Palm Beach Gardens and this will be there first child.
