There’s some evidence to suggest that Serena Williams might be pregnant again

Naomi Osaka Vs Yanina Wickmayer - Miami Open 2019 - Day 5

For most of 2018, Serena Williams was still working on getting back into shape after she gave birth to daughter Olympia in September 2017. Serena detailed the journey on her HBO show, Being Serena, which included a tearful conversation between Serena and her coach Patrick, where Patrick basically ordered her to stop breastfeeding so she could lose weight. By the time Serena arrived in Australia in January of this year, she looked super-fit and toned and like she’d lost almost all of the weight she put on during her pregnancy and postpartum health-crisis journey. I had high hopes that this was going to be the year that Serena came back with a vengeance. Sigh…

I’m still not going to talk about Australia and that foot fault on match point and all of that. Her next tournament was Indian Wells – she played brilliantly for her first match, then retired in the next match, claiming she was dizzy and feeling sick. Okay. She went to Miami for that tournament, one of her favorites of the year. She played one round – poorly, but enough to win – and then she announced her withdrawal from the tournament, citing a knee injury (which is the same excuse she gave when she was pregnant with Olympia). I’ll say this too – in her one match in Miami, she looked like she had gained some weight recently.

So now everyone’s wondering… is Serena knocked up again? She loves being a mom. She adores Olympia and I believe she and Alexis want more kids. But after everything that happened with her body during and after the pregnancy and after it took more than a year for her to really “get back” physically… I just wonder if she’d really decide to go through that again so soon. The other possibility is that Serena’s knee really was feeling wonky and she wants to save herself for the Slams. I don’t know.

Oh, and Serena, Alexis and Olympia were on a yacht yesterday – go here to see the photos. Preg or no?

    Definitely gained some weight. But pregnant? She had *such* a hard time and complications with Olympia’s birth, I don’t know if she’d go that route again. I thought she’d do surrogacy actually. But who knows?

    If the Baby Baby Baby shirt is a “clue”, then Mazel tov to the family!

    It happens. Since she has a history of blood clotting, it’s possible she’s restricted to IUD/barrier methods of birth control, and well…nothing is ever 100%. It’s also possible all that baby love led to wanting more kids, so who knows. Good luck to her either way.

    I for some reason got the feeling this was going to be Serena’s retirement year and now I don’t know.

  4. TheOtherOne says:

    If true, I wish her a happy and healthy pregnancy and delivery.

    If I wanted another child and was 37 and wealthy I’d just go for it. Not saying she should put aside her career for a child, I’m just saying that she has the means and there is no time like the present.

  6. Marcie says:

    Well, in the linked photos she’s literally wearing a sweater that says “baby, baby, baby” so maybe it’s her not-so subtle way of saying she’s pregnant? either way, i wish her the best of luck.

  7. Katashae says:

    Omg I hope so (if she wants and is ready and healthy and everything she needs, of course) because they are my favorite couple and they make such Adorable babies!!

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I hope she just continues to be happy and healthy. If she is pregnant then congratulations! If not – then I hope her knee is ok.
    That “baby baby baby” shirt does have me wondering though!

  9. TheOriginalMia says:

    I wondered if she was pregnant too. If she is, congratulations. If she isn’t, I just want her to get her last slam to break the record.

  10. Ashley says:

    If she is pregnant I doubt that Patrick would’ve have just come out to say Serena is going to play again in Rome, because she herself said if she was pregnant again she would retire.

    The “baby baby baby” sweater was actually a party favour from Duchess Meghan’s baby shower. It has the name of the Mark hotel embroidered on the back, as well.

    I hope so! I’d love to see more Serena babies!
