Last week, we were overjoyed to hear that Serena Williams is pregnant with her first child, and today she penned a sweet note to her baby-to-be. She’s clearly eagerly awaiting her baby’s arrival (as we are!), and her note is an example of what a loving, strong parent she’s going to be. And talk about an insanely lucky baby…because the little one can look forward to having a front row seat to see the number one tennis player in the world smash it with all her might!

We couldn’t be more excited that Serena and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expanding their family.

Okay, that just makes our heart melt. What an empowering message!

There’s a while to wait before their baby makes its entrance, but we’ll be watching out for more updates from these two lovebirds. (And dang, imagine having Serena Williams as your mom).

This little baby is sure to be a force to be reckoned with!
