Tennis legend Serena Williams and her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a baby girl on Friday, New York Daily News reported. 

The baby was born at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach. 

Chris Shepherd, a news producer in West Palm Beach, said sources at the hospital told him both mom and baby are doing well.

Williams, 35, accidently announced her pregnancy when she was 20 weeks by posting a photo on Snapchat while she and Ohanian were on vacation. 

Fans were speculating Serena was having a little girl after Serena's sister, Venus Williams, referred to her baby as “she” in a post-match interview in May.

“She's going to call me 'favorite aunt,'” Venus said after winning a second round at the French Open.
