Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams and fiancé Alexis Ohanian! A source close to the tennis star confirms to US Weekly that the tennis star gave birth to a baby girl at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach today.

While the Reddit co-founder thought his fiancée was carrying a boy, Williams had a hunch that it was a girl all along. “Two weeks after we found out [about the pregnancy], I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die,” she told Vogue for the September issue. “Women are tough that way.”

Various celebrities have already taken to Instagram to congratulate the tennis champion, including Beyoncé, who posted one of the many stunning photos of a gown-clad, pregnant Williams emblazoned with the message “Congratulations, Serena!” We couldn’t be happier for them both.
