The U.S. Open is currently under way, with hundreds of world-class tennis players fighting for titles at one of the world's biggest tennis tournaments. But Serena Williams, one of the greatest athletes of all time, isn't playing this year.
That's because Williams, who was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January against her sister Venus, just gave birth to a baby girl Friday with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, according to reports. The child reportedly weighs six pounds and 13 ounces.
"Obviously I'm super excited. Words can't describe," Venus Williams, Serena's older sister, told ESPN.
In a recent interview on an episode of "Kneading Dough," a show where athletes discuss financial topics on LeBron James' website Uninterrupted, Williams reveals the three things she wants for her baby. First: equal prize money, if her daughter grows up to become an athlete.
Notably, Williams and Ohanian were waiting to find out their baby's sex. But, interestingly, Williams responded to the interview questions as if she were having a girl, and especially if her daughter becomes a successful athlete.
