Serena Williams just confirmed her pregnancy announcement was made by accident … but was only off by about 5 or 6 days.
The tennis star admitted to the social media flub Tuesday at a TED Talks conference in Vancouver with Gayle King — where she said she had meant to take the pic in private … but somehow blasted it out the world.
Serena told Gayle … “On social media, you press the wrong button and thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’”
Doesn’t sound like she regrets the early announcement — she said she was gonna publicly disclose it a few days later anyway. The news also came on the heels of her rising back to No. 1 in the women’s tennis rankings … which ain’t bad for someone who hasn’t played since January.
Unfortunately … she also had to deal with haters like former tennis pro Ilie Nastase, who made a racist comment about her future baby. She shut him down like a champ, though.
