Serena Williams Shows Off Her 'Pregnancy Lips'
By Emily Rekstis |
Serena Williams loves being pregnant and she isn’t shy about flaunting it. Besides covering Vanity Fair nude, the first-time mother also shares her enthusiasm on social media. Most recently, she took to Snapchat to reveal her newest favorite pregnancy change—her lips.
While some women may get upset about their changing body during pregnancy, Serena is not one of them. On Sunday, the athlete shared a close up of her impressively full pout, writing, “Pregnancy lips are finally here! I’m SOOOOOOOO excited! Lol haha.”

We’re used to hearing about feet and ankle swelling during pregnancy, but swelling in the lips is much lesser known. “Pregnancy lips are a real thing but nothing to worry about,” explains New York dermatologist Doris Day, MD. “They happen as part of the overall increased volume and blood flow a woman has during pregnancy.” Some women experience this in unwanted areas like the ankles, but others can get fullness in their cheeks or lips. It seems that the tennis star is one of the lucky ones.
Even if she weren’t, we bet she’d be just as excited.
