    Williams, who is waiting to find out the sex of her baby, confessed in an interview with Gayle King that she had not meant to share the information that soon. 

    “Well, actually it was an accident,” she told King at the 2017 TED Talks conference in Vancouver. “I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where Ive been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along Im going,” Williams explained. “I didnt tell a lot of people to be quite honest and Id been saving. Every week I just take a picture and save it and Ive been so good about it and this was the one time I slipped, but its okay.” 

    She added, “On social media, you press the wrong button and 30 minutes later I missed four calls and Im like, Thats weird. But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to tell people].”

    Williams never fails to inspire with her actions. She continues to push the envelope on and off the tennis court and exemplifies the all-encompassing fortitude of women across the globe.
