Tennis legend Serena Williams has given birth to a baby girl weighing 6lbs and 13oz. Serena and her fiancee, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian announced the pregnancy in April following her stunning Australian Open victory.

An official confirmation from the couple has yet to be made but we understand that Mother and child are both well. We look forward to hearing more, including the baby’s name and in the meantime warmly congratulate sport’s biggest star and icon on her new arrival.
