Mama na girl o! Serena Williams and her fiance welcome baby girl


23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams, 35, whose partner is Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, is reported to have given birth to a baby girl last night.

The news came just as her sister, Venus, was preparing to go out on court at the US Open. “Obviously I’m super-excited,” Venus said. “Words can’t describe it.”

Everyone is excited for the super athlete, with Rafa Nadal among the first to tweet his congratulations.


We are having a wealth of girl births and it is sweeting my belle. Serena Williams just had a daughter. Mark Zuckerberg has two. Two out of three of Beyonce’s babies are girls. George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama – all with daughters. If nothing else, in a few years, there will be influential women in all walks of life who might be able to narrow certain gaps. And that is a nothing if not a joyful thing.
