The 25-year-old broke the exciting news by sharing a photo of an ultrasound screen on Instagram on Wednesday, January 11. "Can't wait to get back on the court but here's a little life update for 2023," she captioned it.
Naomi also attached a lengthy note in her post that read, "The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that it's the most challenging times in life that may be the most fun." It added, "These few months away from the sport has really given me a new love and appreciation for the game I've dedicated my life to."
"I realize that life is so short and I don't take any moments for granted, every day is a new blessing and adventure," Naomi further wrote. "I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I'm looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, 'that's my mom,' haha."
Naomi then vowed to get back to tennis after welcoming her baby. "2023 will be a year that'll be full of lessons for me and I hope I'll see you guys in the start of the next one cause I'll be at Aus 2024. Love you all infinitely," she stated.
