Tennis star Naomi Osaka gave fans a glimpse of her blossoming baby bump as she toured Japan.
Sharing a carousel of photos with her 2.7 million Instagram followers, Osaka could be seen wearing a mop top that showed off her growing bump.
The 25-year-old tennis star is expecting her first child with boyfriend and rapper Cordae.
As her due date approached, the 4-time Grand Slam winner took a trip to Japan, where she snapped some photos in between visits.
Soon there would be the publication that the mother had written with the Japanese flag.
“Mama in Japan 🇯🇵😍 better not delete this!!!!!!!” Tennis star Sloane Stephens wrote in the comments section.

Osaka later shared a close-up photo of her bump on her Instagram Story.
The two-time US Open winner announced in January that she was expecting her first child after pulling out of the Australian Open.
Taking to social media, the tennis ace posted a photo of a sonogram.

“The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that the hardest times in life can be the most fun,” wrote Osaka, who has been dating Cordae since 2019.
“These few months away from the sport have given me a new love and appreciation for the game I have dedicated my life to.”
“I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moment for granted, every day is a blessing and a new adventure. I know I have a lot to look forward to, it’s one thing for my kids to watch one of my games and say to someone, ‘that’s my mom’, haha.”

Osaka said she plans to return to the Australian Open in 2024.
“2023 will be a year full of lessons for me and I hope to see you all at the start of the next one as I will be at Aus 2024. We love you all so much,” he continued.
“(Side note): I don’t believe there is a perfectly straight path in life, but I’ve always felt that if you go forward with good intentions, you’ll eventually find your way.”
Osaka and the rapper, who remains tight-lipped about their relationship, were spotted at a Clippers game in 2019.
