Serena Williams has welcomed her first child with her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian at a Florida clinic on Friday, a source told ‘Us Weekly’.

The newborn baby girl weighs 6 pounds, 13 ounces and both she and her mother are doing well, according to reports circling on social media.

Williams had accidentally announced her pregnancy in a Snapchat photo on April 19 when she posted a selfie that showed off her tiny baby bump, writing that she was “20 weeks” pregnant.

Serena won her record 23rd Grand Slam title at this year’s Australian Open over her sister Venus.

Williams and Ohanian, 34, got engaged in December 2016. The pair have yet to announce a wedding date.
