“Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well,” WPBF-25 news producer Chris Shepherd announced on Twitter, citing a source at the hospital.

The new mom was induced on Thursday night, according to local station CBS 12.

Williams, 35, announced her pregnancy in a bathing suit snap on Snapchat in April with the caption “20 weeks” amid a series of images from the couple’s tropical getaway.The athlete later revealed she had posted the snap publicly by accident — and that it was really only meant for close friends.

Ohanian opened up about how the Olympic champ will be a great mother during an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box” in early July.

Serena confirms she hope to return to playing as early as January.
