Naomi Osaka reveals baby bump in a photo taken in Japan
Naomi Osaka, the tennis star, took to social media on Tuesday, March 21 to show off her baby bump. This was just months after it was announced that she is expecting her first child with her Grammy-nominated partner, Cordae.
The tennis pro shared several snaps taken from Japan’s street. She was wearing a green cropped jersey with her last name and number 97 on the back. Her baby bump is adorably visible in front. She paired the top with a pair of voluminous oversized jeans, beige and gray sneakers, large gold hoops, and a baseball cap by On.
The caption was kept simple by the soon-to-be mom, who used the Japanese flag as her caption. She shared another picture of her bump on her Instagram Story. This time, she was holding it close-up.
Osaka first revealed she was pregnant in January, expecting her first baby with her boyfriend Cordae. At the time, she shared an Instagram carousel featuring a photo of an ultrasound screen, captioning the shot, “Can’t wait to get back on the court but here’s a little life update for 2023.”
In a message shared in English and Japanese in the following slides, Osaka shared reflections on her next chapter. She wrote;
“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.”
