They wrapped up the festivities on Sunday with beach party brunch and everyone looked precious in yellow for the happy occasion.
Incase you missed, Serena announced her pregnancy by mistake on April 19. “On social media you press the wrong button and…30 minutes later I missed 4 calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird,’” Serena explained during a TED Talk with Gayle King. She had no idea that she had shared her thrilling news with the entire world on Snapchat! “I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m getting… I’ve been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped.”
But when it comes to revealing the sex of her and her fiancé Alexis Ohanian‘s first child, Serena Williams won’t be making the same mistake… As she is also keeping herself in suspense. She revealed this during an interview at the just concluded Met Gala, which took place May 1st, Serena said that she and Alexis are waiting to find out their baby’s sex, Serena also mentioned what they’re calling the unborn youngster in the meantime.
“We’re waiting. [It’s] a surprise,” Serena gushed to Vogue‘s André Leon Talley at the star-studded affair when he asked her and Alexis if they know what they’re having. “We call it ‘baby.’”
When André asked the couple if they would be raising their fam in Alexis’ current home base of San Francisco, the tennis champ replied, “That’s the question of the hour… I couldn’t be stuck in a more beautiful place.” Something else the two can clearly agree on is how exciting becoming first-time parents is going to be. “I’m really good,” Alexis, who’s the co-founder of Reddit, told André.
Serena agreed, adding that she and her man “have time” to prepare for the arrival of their baby this fall. The Met Ball was the athlete’s first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy last month. Serena loopked absolutely stunning and radiant in a green Versace dress that showed off her curves. Alexis opted for a well tailored black tux. They looked amazing together.
