A stunning Serena Williams posed nude and pregnant for the cover of Vanity Fair's August issue.

The tennis star, who is currently about seven months pregnant, told Vanity Fair that she didn't think she was pregnant — even after unexpectedly throwing up during practice. Her friend convinced her to take a test. 

“I’ll take it just because (a) to prove you wrong and (b) because it’s fun, whatever. It’s like a joke. Why not?” She told the magazine. "I put it down. I went back to finishing hair and makeup, was laughing, talking. I was getting the styling done. An hour and a half later, I went back to the bathroom and I totally forgot about it."

Stunned, it took Williams five more positive pregnancy tests to convince her it was real. She told her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, by handing all six tests to him in a brown paper bag. 

Williams told the magazine how the unlikely pair first met. Here are five our of favorite details about their love story: 

1. They're total opposites. 

She's a professional athlete, and he's the co-founder of Reddit. He told Vanity Fair that he zoned out during tennis matches, and had never even seen a tennis match until they met.

2. They met because Ohanian made a poor table choice. 

Williams was at a hotel with her friends eating breakfast by the pool, when Ohanian decided to sit alone at the table right next to theirs — even though all the other tables were empty. One of her friends called him out on it, and they joked back and forth before he was asked to join them for a meal. 

3. Their first date was straight out of a movie. 

They wandered around Paris for six hours eating candy and looking at the Effiel Tower. No wonder they fell in love.

4. He liked to give her a hard time. 

He once turned down a tennis lesson from Williams just so he could tell his friends that he once turned down a lesson with Serena Williams. But he told Vanity Fair that he admires her dedication to the sport, and says that she "makes him a better person." Swoon. 

5. He proposed with a plastic rat. 

During their first encounter at the hotel, Williams joked that Ohanian should switch tables because their was a rat under his. So when he proposed to her in that very spot, he made sure to have a plastic rat sitting on the table.
