Williams, whose older sister Venus, 37, is competing in Wimbledon, announced earlier this year she is pregnant with her first child.

She recently told Vanity Fair that she first learned she was pregnant about eight weeks in, when she hadn't been feeling well and even threw up while playing in the Australian open in January.

Her friend had told her to take a pregnancy test and when it did, the results came back positive.

“Oh my God, this can’t be — I’ve got to play a tournament,” Williams told Vanity Fair about the discovery. “How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon this year."

She took six pregnancy tests and all came back positive.
