Serena Williams has shown off her baby bump in a spectacular nude photo shoot for Vanity Fair.

The tennis superstar shows her pregnancy bod in all its glory in a stunning photo from celebrity snapper Annie Leibovitz on the cover of Vanity Fair’s latest edition .

Serena is having a baby with her fiance, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. She announced her pregnancy on Snapchat in April 2017. Serena shared the nude cover shot with fans on Twitter, inviting them to guess whether she’s having a boy or a girl.

“If you would have told me last year in October or November that I would have a baby, not be pregnant but have a baby, I would have thought you were the biggest liar in the world,” Williams tells Vanity Fair.

“This is kind of how I am right now. This is happening sooner than later, and it’s going by so fast.”

And the mum-to-be also opens up about how she discovered she was pregnant while in Australia at the start of the year. She went on to win the Australian Open.

After throwing up, and noticing her breasts had become larger, Serena humoured her friend and took a pregnancy test, expecting it to be negative.

“I did a double take and my heart dropped. Like literally it dropped,” Serena tells Vanity Fair.

“Oh my God, this can’t be – I’ve got to play a tournament. How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon this year.”

Serena and Alexis, who met in Rome, plan to get married after the baby is born and the 23-time grand slam title winner expects to be back on the pro tennis circuit in January 2018.
