Serena Williams Drops a Note to Her Baby
Aww.   (Instagram)

It's been a busy few months for Serena Williams. First the tennis star announced in December she was marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, then she won the Australian Open, and finally, the biggest news of all last week: She's pregnant. Now TMZ reports that Williams is opening up a little more than the original cryptic Snapchat post that alluded to her pregnancy. In a Monday morning Instagram post addressed to "My Dearest Baby," a smiling Williams says she "can't wait" to meet her little one, that the baby inside her has given her "strength I didn't know I had," and that "you taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace." She closes out her note "from the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one" and signs it, simply, "Your Mommy." Cue Twitter's tears. (Another tennis star's reaction to Williams' pregnancy was … unfortunate.)
