Serena herself tied her hair back with a red bandana and donned a yellow poodle skirt and black and white saddle shoes, with a string of pearls completing the retro look. "I am not "less of a woman" because I don't have children", wrote one Twitter user. "[Fiancé Alexis Ohanian] [will] probably know more [than me] after his four-hour course".

Throughout her career, Williams has broken down barriers when it comes to sports, but she's also vocal when it comes to women's rights.

"Whatever they want to do, they can do", she said. "I want to be a sexy pregnant person - you can do it". I'm not going to say, 'You have to play tennis.' I wouldn't even put a tennis racket in their hand.

The couple recently celebrated their coming bundle of joy with a star-studded, 19-themed baby shower.
