Serena Williams has kept quiet since announcing her pregnancy last week, but that changed this morning. The tennis champ took to Instagram to share another baby bump photo and, more importantly, an emotional open letter to her future child.

See if you can read the whole message without tearing up:

 

"My Dearest Baby,

"You gave me the strength I didn't know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can't wait to meet you. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you.... once again today. On @alexisohanian bday. From the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one. -Your Mommy"

Williams is about 20 weeks along, she disclosed when she revealed she revealed and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expecting. She's due in the fall and will be taking a maternity leave from tennis for the rest of the 2017 season.
