Since announcing her pregnancy on Snapchat last month the ex-tennis player has been no stranger to posting snaps of her baby bump on social media.
And the 35 year old knew exactly how to celebrate her first Mother’s Day weekend in style this year.
Posting to her 5.7 million Instagram followers at the start of Mother’s Day weekend, Serena proved that maternity dressing can be chic with a colourful outfit.

While the UK celebrated Mother’s Day on March 11 this year, the US celebrated the same event on May 14.
Earlier this month the mum-to-be announced that she does not want to know the sex of her baby until it arrives.
Revealing the news to Vogue, she said: “We’re waiting. [It’s] a surprise. We call it ‘baby’.”
