Serena Williams goes into labor as entire floor of the hospital is cleared
Pregnant Serena Williams has gone into labour and reportedly cleared an entire hospital floor so she can give birth to her first child in total privacy.
CBS claims the Wimbledon star was induced in St. Mary’s Medical Centre in West Palm Beach, Florida on August 31, 2017.
The 23 Grand Slam title winner is said to have checked into the hospital on Wednesday, with the entire first floor cleared for security reasons.
Serena – whose child will be her first with fiance Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian – announced her pregnancy in April on Snapchat.
She said she is having a baby girl.
Speaking to American Vogue she said: ‘Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open,’ the proud mum-to-be explained.
‘I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble.
‘Ride or die. Women are tough that way.’
