She’s a world-class tennis champion who went viral for dominating the courts, and now, Naomi Osaka is taking “mother” to a literal level. The 25-year-old has reportedly delivered a baby girl with musician partner Cordae, after dropping the news of her pregnancy earlier this year.

Osaka announced her pregnancy in classic Gen-Z fashion, with a sonogram-‘gram, and a heartfelt paragraph drafted on her Notes app. Clarifying that she will not be swapping racquets for nappies completely, the news comes after the tennis professional took a brief break from the sport to manage her mental health in 2021. In the post, the four-time Grand Slam singles champion reflected on her tennis career stating, “Can’t wait to get back on the court but here’s a little life update for 2023”, and “One thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, ‘That’s my mom'”.
