Tennis superstar Serena Williams welcomed her first child with Reddit.com tech boss Alexis Ohanian.
Florida reporter Chris Shepherd confirmed the news on Twitter.com after rumors swirled Friday suggesting the champion was in labor in a Palm Beach hospital.
Shepherd tweeted: "Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well."
He later noted he received the information from a hospital source. Serena, 35, was reportedly admitted to St. Mary's Medical Center in Palm Beach, Florida on Wednesday, and induced on Thursday night.
She and her fiancé Alexis, who became engaged last year, have yet to comment on the baby news.
