Exciting news has erupted over social media on Wednesday when Naomi broke the news that she is expecting a bundle of joy.
Tennis Star Naomi Osaka posted to social media sharing a picture of her baby via ultrasound scan.
She shares that she can’t wait to get back on the court when she returns to tennis at the Australian Open in 2024, a tournament she’s won on two occasions.
“The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that its the most challenging times in life that may be the most fun,” Osaka included in her social media post.
Osaka added, “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.”
Prior to this exciting announcement, the competition organizers for the Australian Open announced on Sunday that 25-year-old Naomi Osaka had withdrawn from the competition.
She had shared in the past that she took some time away from the competitive sport following her public disclosures on her struggles with mental health following an incident in August 2021.
Subsequently, Osaka has not played since the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo September of last year.
We’re looking forward to her return to the sport following her journey into motherhood.
While we wait, let’s keep mom and baby lifted in well wishes and positive vibes!
