Worldwide tennis champion Serena Williams pretty much slays everything she does, and that’s soon going to include motherhood. To celebrate the upcoming arrival of her little one, she recently posed for the cover of Vanity Fair – wearing nothing but panties and a body chain.

Serena first met her man, Reddit inventor Alexis Ohanian, in 2015 at a hotel in Rome. After a year and a half of courtship, romantic dates in Paris, and Alexis flying around the world to watch Serena play, the pair became engaged in December 2016. The following month, Serena made the jaw-dropping discovery that she was 8 weeks pregnant – and then casually went on to win all 7 matches of the Australian Open with no one even knowing her secret.

Though Serena looks like a stunning, other-worldly goddess in the sumptuous Annie Leibovitz photo series, you probably could’ve guessed by now that, as usual, some people are still shocked by the sight of a naked, pregnant female body. For the most part, however, she’s getting the praise she deserves. See her incredible photoshoot below, and add your opinion in the comments!
