Taylor Townsend is going to be a mother!
The 24-year-old American tennis pro and U.S. Open competitor made the exciting announcement on Wednesday (October 14).
“BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. Life has a funny way of putting you exactly where you are supposed to be. I’m so excited to embark on the journey of motherhood!!” she said on social media, adding the hashtag “Baby Townsend 2021.”
She also shared a moving video.
“At four years old I was told I would never make it and I should quit. At 12 I became the youngest-ever to win the Georgia state qualifier. At 15, I didn’t think I was good enough, but I proved myself wrong by winning the junior Australian open in singles and in doubles. My entire life, my entire career, I’ve heard you can’t, you won’t and I’ve used it as a reason to fight hard and as motivation to keep playing,” she said in the video.
“I’m sure this won’t be any different, so I’ll have to prove them wrong again,” she added, revealing that her baby is due in March.
She also changed her bio to read “Pro tennis player” and “mom to be.”
Congratulations! All of these stars are also expecting in 2020…
