Venus Williams took under 15 minutes to have Instagram questioning if she’s pregnant today. The 38-year-old tennis pro and sister to 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams updated her account on Wednesday with homey fireside photos – Venus is reported to be single following her 2019 split from millionaire boyfriend Nicholas Hammond, but her Instagram followers seemed pretty convinced that someone’s been getting some between-the-sheets action.
Venus is currently fronting media outlets for joining former World no. 1 sister Serena for a workout that’s been dubbed “iconic.” Talk in the comments section was more about that stomach-cradling, though.
Venus kicked off her post with a pose that’s often used to make the big announcement. The star had been photographed by a white stone fireplace while in quarantine, seen shooting the camera a knowing gaze as she flaunted her super-fit body in a look that was both relaxed and curve-hugging. A black t-shirt from Venus’ EleVen clothing was offsetting a skintight black skirt showing off the athlete’s curves.
A caption kept things simple as Williams wrote:
“Ready for anything… in this covid environment, I’m planning on winning. #win”

Venus has a more modest following compared to Serena, who boasts 12. 3 million Instagram followers. Venus’ fanbase of 1.2 million had plenty of thoughts, though.
“That first pose had me like……,” one wrote.
“Thought u were tryna tell us something at first ?wheeww‼️ love u boo u look GORG ‼️” another wrote.
“Pregnant?” was all one user needed.
Meanwhile, others simply sent love, especially regarding Venus’ recent Instagram Live appearance – “Thanks for the shout out V on insta live today! You are class personified!?,” one fan wrote.
Venus has been keeping Instagram entertained amid the global pandemic – sometimes, in usual ways. April brought the star in a tight white USA swimsuit as she power-cleaned her home with Clorox spray. The popular household product wasn’t random, though, with Venus now fronting the brand. That said, fans have proven stumped by the promo, with The Blast documenting a weirded-out Instagram as Venus first promoted Clorox.
June 2019 saw Venus reportedly split from her boyfriend of two years. Nicky Hammond, reportedly 12 years younger than Venus is said to have dated the star for “two years and have broken up. It’s not because they don’t love each other, they do. They are still friends,” a source told Page Six.
Between the sisters, Serena has continously proven to be the dominant headline-maker amid COVID-19. As one of the first celebrities to announce “going into solitude” back in March, the mom of one has been fronting media outlets for bursting out of her Disney dress while microwave-baking pies, plus admitting her own anxieties – Serena confessed to “side-eyeing” 2-year-old daughter Alexis Ohanian Olympia Jr. when she coughed.
Serena and Venus’ joint backyard workout posted to Serena’s Instagram yesterday currently sits at over 795,000 views.
