Williams’ post has unsurprisingly been viewed millions of times, with thousands getting in touch via the comments section to send their best wishes. The multiple major winner announced her retirement from tennis in September 2022 due to her desire to have more children.

Williams and Ohanian met in May 2015 when they were staying at the same hotel in Rome. After a couple of dates, the pair quickly decided to make their relationship official.

A little over a year later, the couple got engaged in December 2016 and married the following November, by which time they’d already welcomed Olympia into the world. In April 2017, Williams revealed on Snapchat she was 20 weeks pregnant, which meant she was eight weeks pregnant when she won the 2017 Australian Open, her last ever Grand Slam victory.
