According to the A-lister’s rep, Miz Williams will be going on maternity leave after she welcomes her baby with fiancé Alexis Ohanian into the world this Fall.

Serena’s spokesperson revealed Beyoncé‘s pal will be sitting out the remainder of the 2017 tennis season and won’t be returning to the courts until 2018. Although we’ll miss seeing Serena kick ass at the Madrid Open this May, we’re so excited for her as she prepares for motherhood!

Congrats again, girl!
