Serena Williams who is due to give birth to her first child later this summer posed nude for the cover of the most recent issue of Vanity Fair.
The photograph by Annie Leibovitz depicts Williams in front of a stark background, nude except for her hand in front of her breasts and a waist chain, a recreation of her famous 1991 cover shot of actress Demi Moore.
During the interview with Vanity Fair, Williams, who announced her pregnancy back in April, said she learned she was pregnant just before winning the Australian Open.
“If you would have told me last year in October or November that I would have a baby, not be pregnant but have a baby, I would have thought you were the biggest liar in the world,” Williams told Vanity Fair.
“This is kind of how I am right now. This is happening sooner than later, and it’s going by so fast.”
Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:
