Tennis star Serena Williams became a mother on Friday.

Williams gave birth to a baby girl at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Palm Beach, Florida, according to local CBS12 reporter Thomas Forester. She checked into the hospital Wednesday and had the entire first floor to herself, according to CBS12. There is strict security in place that prevents people other than Williams’ family and close friends from coming in.

Williams was induced Thursday night, the hospital confirmed to Forester.

In an interview with ESPN Friday, Venus Williams was asked about the reports of her sister getting induced.

“Obviously I am super excited and words can’t describe it,” Venus said.

Williams accidentally announced her pregnancy on her Snapchat Story back in April. The picture she was of her wearing a yellow one-piece swimsuit with the caption “20 weeks.”

The Snapchat was quickly removed from her story. But a spokesperson for the tennis star later confirmed that Williams was expecting a baby and she was due this fall.

Williams, 35, got engaged in December to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33.

Williams has 72 Women’s Tennis Association titles and most recently won her 23rd career grand slam, the most of any player in the Open Era. She hasn’t played in a tournament since beating her sister Venus in this year’s Australian Open women’s single final in January.
