Serena Williams' new bundle of joy is here.

The tennis champ has welcomed a baby girl with her fiance, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, on Friday, reports Us Weekly. A rep for Williams did not immediately respond to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.

Williams first announced she was expecting in April via a Snapchat post that included the caption "20 weeks," indicating how far along she was in her pregnancy. It was later revealed that she accidentally pressed the wrong button and made the post public.

In June, Williams celebrated her pregnancy with a Vanity Fair cover, in which she stripped down for the magazine to reveal her baby bump a la Demi Moore's 1991 Vanity Fair cover.

Williams, 35, and Ohanian, 34, got engaged in December 2016. Following their announcement on Reddit, Williams shared a photo from the evening of the engagement on the Sneakers subreddit, giving a sneak peek of her massive rock.

Although Williams and Ohanian have yet to reveal their happy baby news on their respective social media channels, it looks like Beyonce has made the announcement for them on Instagram. Bey posted a glam photo of Williams holding her baby bump with text that reads, "Congratulations Serena!" Looks like Rumi and Sir Carter are about to have a new best friend.
