TURN ON THE SIREN. RING THE BELL. SCREAM UNTIL YOU CAN SCREAM NO LONGER. FOR SERENA WILLIAMS IS PREGNANT. I REPEAT: SERENA WILLIAMS. IS. PREGNANT. 

That’s right: The tennis great announced on Snapchat Wednesday that she is 20 weeks pregnant with her first child. Her rep later confirmed to The Huffington Post that she is due this fall.

Do you know what this means? It means that our nation’s two queens, Beyoncé and Serena Williams, are both pregnant at the exact same time. 

Even more astonishingly, it means that Williams was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January

The news comes just a few months after Williams announced that she’s engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian ― appropriately enough in a post on her fiancé’s site

I came home

A little late

Someone had a bag packed for me

And a carriage awaited

Destination: Rome

To escort me to my very own “charming”

Back to where our stars first collided

And now it was full circle

At the same table we first met by chance

This time he made it not by chance

But by choice

Down on one knee

He said 4 words

And
