Some thought Serena Williams was being coy when she posted the image last week that announced her pregnancy to the world, then soon after deleted it. But it turns out the tennis star had simply never meant for the picture to go public at all, People reports. The tennis star sat down Tuesday with Gayle King at the TED conference in Vancouver, BC, and revealed, as E! Online puts it, that she's "just like us, well, sorta" when it comes to messing up on social media.
"It was an accident," Williams confessed about the baby bump reveal now seen 'round the world. She explained how she's been regularly taking pictures of her pregnancy's progress and saving it for herself, except this time around she hit "Send" instead of "Save." "You press the wrong button and…," Serena explained. Williams isn't taking the goof-up too hard, though, noting that she'd planned on sharing the big news in "five or six more days" anyway. (Williams' note to her unborn baby.)
