She’s a mom!

Serena Williams was induced Thursday night at St. Mary's Medical Center in Palm Beach, according to CBS12.

The tennis star, 35, gave birth on Friday to a baby girl with her fiance Alexis Ohanian by her side. UsWeekly confirmed the happy news.

Gossip Extra reports she was staying in a luxury wing at the hospital called Birthplace Suites, where Celine Dion gave birth in 2010.

Palm Beach’s WPBF-25 TV producer Chris Shepherd announced on Twitter that the infant weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces, but his source is unclear.

Williams announced her pregnancy by accident on social media back in April.
