Serena Williams revealed she was pregnant last week by uploading a photo of herself in a swimsuit via Snapchat with the caption “20 weeks.” However, she has since shared that she uploaded the photo by accident, the BBC reports.
“I was just saving them [for myself],” she said. “I’ve been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped.”
The 35-year-old was using the app to take weekly photos tracking her bump growth and quickly deleted the photo after posting—but it was too late. Her publicist was then forced to confirm the news.
“This [motherhood] is just a new part of my life. My baby’s going to be in the stands and hopefully cheering for me.”
The 23-time Grand Slam winner is engaged to Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, and the couple are expecting their first child in autumn.
