"Growing up I wasn't the richest, but I had a rich family in spirit. Standing here with 19 championships is something I never thought would happen. I went on a court just with a ball and a racquet and with a hope."

13 Secrets to Serena Williams' Success

New mother and wife-to-be, Serena Williams is selling her Bel Air, Los Angeles home for a whopping $12 million.

The 6,101 square feet property boasts six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 2.7 acres of outdoor space, a private salon and bar. The white picturesque home is surrounded by foliage, including a beautiful vine covered walkway.

According to Harper's Bazaar, the tennis champ bought the place eleven years ago, in 2006, for just $6.6 million. Having made her home back in Florida, Williams is no doubt selling the property to consolidate her life with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian. She's also making a great return on investment if someone buys for $12 million.

Last week Williams and Ohanian were spotted in New Orleans where their wedding is rumored to be held. The Reddit co-founder popped the question to the tennis champion in December 2016 in Rome a year and a half after they first met —they welcomed their baby girl in September.
