The sportswoman also quipped about her baby having already got a Grand Slam title to her name, as Serena won the Australian Open during the early stages of her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, Serena’s older sister, Venus Williams, recently admitted she is “super excited” about the new addition to their family.

Speaking at the US Open, Venus said: “I’m super excited. Words can’t describe.”

Speaking after her third-round match win against Greece’s Maria Sakkari, Venus claimed she wouldn’t be answering questions about her sister’s start to parenthood, but did admit the pair “always talk”.

She said: “We always talk. We always talk, so she’s always encouraging me. Yeah, from every step of the way, every match, always.”
