Another baby on the court — and at the Met Gala Serena Williams is pregnant and expecting her second child with husband Alexis Ohanian, the tennis champ revealed on Fashion’s Biggest Night.
“Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala,” the iconic athlete, 41, wrote via Instagram on Monday, May 1, alongside multiple photos of her and the Reddit cofounder, 40, dressed to the nines at the New York City soiree.
Williams stunned in custom Gucci, wearing a form-fitting, mermaid-style gown that showed off her growing baby bump, which she cradled in several of the sweet pics. She and Ohanian — who are also the proud parents of daughter Olympia, 5 — color-coordinated in dark ensembles, though the 23-time Grand Slam winner opted for a lot more glitz and glam: she accentuated her dress with rhinestones and a waterfall of pearls that cascaded down her neck. The frock crescendoed into a white tulle fabric at the bottom.
It is the second pregnancy announcement for Williams, whose 2017 reveal – she was expecting daughter Olympia at the time – did not go as planned. In April 2017, five months before giving birth to her first-born in September of that year, Williams accidentally shared her pregnancy news when she mistakenly uploaded a photo of her baby bump to Snapchat.
“On social media you press the wrong button and … 30 minutes later I missed 4 calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird,’” she told Gayle King at a TED conference that same month.
The seven-time Wimbledon champion revealed that she took the photo to privately document the pregnancy.
