A FLOOD of congratulatory posts have popped-up on social media since Friday (September 1), after news that Serena Williams had given birth to a baby girl.

No.1-ranking Williams and her fiancee, Reddit founder and serial entrepreneur, Armenian/German Alexis Ohanian, have kept quiet about the newborn's name and are no doubt spending time between feeds quietly scrolling through masses of messages from well-wishers, whilst the happy realities of parenthood sink in.

New aunty Venus Williams revealed a tiny bit of the family's joy when speaking with ESPN ahead of her match at the US Open on Friday, telling the sports media house:

"Obviously, I'm super-excited. Words can't describe."

Serena's coach Patrick Mouratoglu, Beyonce and Reverend Jesse Jackson are just some of those who have offered their best to the happy couple via Twitter and Instagram.
