Naomi Osaka is one of the biggest tennis players in the entire world. Overall, she is a champion in the women's circuit and has even defeated legends like Serena Williams. Although, in the last couple of years, Osaka has struggled to maintain consistency. That said, tennis is probably the last thing on Osaka's mind as she is currently pregnant. This will be her and Cordae's very first child, and there is no denying that they are both excited about this new bundle of joy.

For the most part, Osaka has stayed out of the public eye over the last few months. Naomi Osaka announced her pregnancy in January, and since then, we haven't heard too much from her. Recently, however, that changed as the tennis superstar took to Instagram with some images from a trip to Japan. In the photos below, you can see Osaka's baby bump. Clearly, she has no issues with showing it off now as she continues to get farther along in her pregnancy.

Naomi Osaka Reveals Pregnancy Progress

“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. 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,” Osaka wrote at the time of her initial announcement. “I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moments for granted, everyday is a new blessing and adventure. 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.”

Pregnancy is certainly no easy task, however, Osaka seems to be doing well for herself right now. Hopefully, this proves to be a relaxing time for the tennis star, especially as it pertains to the anxieties surrounding her career. It seemed like tennis wasn't fun for her in the months leading up to her pregnancy. That said, having a child could very well give Naomi a whole new lease on life, and tennis.
