Serena and Federer light up the Met Gala

Serena Williams is "waiting" to find out the sex of her baby.

Anyway, since April 19, Serena has demonstrated she's not quite as technologically savvy as she thought she was, pressing the wrong button and inadvertently spilling the beans on her pregnancy on Snapchat.

When Justine Henin shocked the tennis world with her first retirement in 2008, she was the top player in the sport.

Serena Williams at the Met Gala in 2011. The 35-year-old tennis player recently (and accidentally) announced that she's pregnant, and also shared the exciting news that she's engaged to the (relatively unknown) tech mogul and co-founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian, 34.

Serena's most unfortunate situation was dealing with Nastase's racist remark about her unborn child, which was made worse by his shameful failure to realize he said anything objectionable. "I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm going". Williams posted a message to her future child, via Instagram, that read "I can't wait to meet you".

With former number one Victória Azárenka - who missed last year's tour due to pregnancy - returning in July, and Sharapova - who returned from her 15-month ban for doping at the Stuttgart Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Germany on Wednesday - it will be interesting to see how women's tennis plays out. That killer smile, soulful eyes and flawless skin have long turned heads, but never has she looked as lovely as she does right now.

"My Dearest Baby", Williams wrote. "If I don't win, it's actually bigger news".

Williams and Ohanian still have a few months before the baby arrives.

"I was so nervous", she added".
