Osaka announced her pregnancy this January. On Instagram and Twitter, she posted a photo of an ultrasound of her baby and included a touching note about the happy news:
“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. 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,” the note read.
“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,” the four-time Grand Slam champion added. She also mentioned that she will be returning to tennis at the Australia Open in 2024. “I’ll see you guys in the start of the next one [because] I’ll be at Austin 2024. Love you all infinitely.”
Osaka concluded, “Sidenote: I don’t think there’s a perfectly correct path to take in life, but I always felt that if you move forward with good intentions, you’ll find your way eventually.”
