Tennis champion Serena Williams is soon to be a mom of two! The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion has been photographed for the SI Swimsuit issue three times, with her debut in 2003 and her most recent magazine appearance in 2017.

The Serena Ventures founder and her hubby, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, are parents to 5-year-old Olympia and are expecting their second baby soon.

“Women need to be celebrated, and they need to embrace what you look like and not from the outside, but from the inside,” Williams said at the time of her Turks and Caicos photo shoot. “So every time I step out there in that swimsuit, I’m really feeling myself from the inside. I’m feeling my inner beauty and it’s going, and it’s showing in my poses and in everything.”

Below are six of our favorite photos from her 2017 photo shoot with Emmanuelle Hauguel.
