The video then cuts to the 41-year-old sat down and talking to the camera, revealing that her daughter has been commenting on her changing body.

“Remember how you've been praying for a little sister or brother?”, Williams began. “Well, we went to the doctor, and it turns out I'm not getting fat. But I have a baby in my belly”.

Clearly over the moon, Olympia asks, “What, are you kidding me?”, before her dad confirms, “You're going to be a big sister”.

Joyfully, the five-year-old hugs her mum and her blossoming baby bump as Serena undoes her jeans and lifts up her top to have her full bump on display. 

Olympia then gets up and runs around the room as she exclaims, “I’m so excited”.

“You got a lot of work to do. You gotta do a lot of work getting ready to be a big sister”, Alexis teased.
