Serena Williams is enjoying a babymoon in Monaco with fiancé Alexis Ohanian ahead of welcoming their first child.

The tennis super star shared pictures of the getaway with Reddit co-founder Ohanian and a few friends on social media.

"Loved arriving in Monaco," she captioned a photo of the group on a powerboat.

During the trip, Williams (35) also attended the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix.

The athlete stepped out in style in a colourful printed top, skimming over her growing baby bump.

Williams announced in March that she is expecting her first child with Ohanian (34), after accidentally revealing her pregnancy on social media.

She told the TED conference in Vancouver that the photo she shared of her baby bump was intended only for her personal records.

"I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm getting," the 35-year-old said in an on-stage chat with journalist Gayle King.

"I was just saving them (for myself)" said Williams. "I've been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped."

The couple first got together in 2015 and became engaged in December.
