Serena Williams shows off her baby bump at Met Gala 2017

Not only did Williams clinch her 23rd Grand Slam title in the January competition to pass Graf. she was expecting at the time, as many were quick to point out once she accidentally announced her pregnancy in April.

Last night, at the 2017 MET Gala held at the Museum of Art in NY, the tennis champ and her fiance Alexis Ohanian stepped out for the first time since the news of her pregnancy broke, and she rightfully stole the show. Williams posted a message to her future child, via Instagram, that read "I can't wait to meet you".

Williams was spotted heading into the Comme des Garçons-themed gala with her Reddit co-founder fiance Alexis Ohanian, and while Ohanian looks sharp, Williams is the true show-stealer.

The athlete rocked a sleek and straight short hair 'do as she turned heads in her beaded green gown.

"Pregnant or not, no one knew and I was supposed to win that tournament".

But again, it's impossible to know for sure without details about which income levels would be assigned to which tax bracket . It's also impossible to know what sorts of new or different tax breaks will be available for child care or elder care.

Williams is now away from the sport as she is on her maternity leave.

"You know how social media is; you press the wrong button and there it is", Williams said with a laugh. "I couldn't be stuck in a more handsome place", she admitted. Destination: "Rome", Williams wrote. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. "From the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one - Your Mommy". It's not just that gentle curve that is adding to her undeniable beauty however - it's the look in her eyes, the expression on her face - pure, deep happiness.

"That's the question of the hour", Williams replied.
