Tennis superstar Serena Williams has given birth to a baby girl in West Palm Beach, Florida.
No name has been provided for the child as of yet, however Serena's friends and colleagues - including Beyonce, Boris Becker and Rafa Nadal - have all posted congratulatory messages on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Williams is engaged to Alexis Ohanian, one of the co-founders of Reddit.
Congrats Serena!!! So much joy for you!!! https://t.co/u4edTrqIbB

Williams' child, her first, was "accidentally" announced when she posted a candid selfie of her baby bump when she was approximately twenty weeks along, and it's understood from local news source CBS12 that Williams was put into induced labour before giving birth to a six pound, thirteen ounces bundle of joy.
