Tennis legend and 39-time Grand Slam singles champion, Serena Williams has announced she is expecting her second child with husband Alexis Ohanian.
She revealed this news on the red carpet at the star-studded Met Gala on Monday, May 1, 2023, confirming to reporters at the New York fashion show that “three of us” were present.
Williams had famously won the 2017 Australian Open in Melbourne while pregnant with her first daughter, Alexis Olympia.
“I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me,” Williams wrote in a 2022 Vogue magazine article.
Wearing a black and white Gucci dress with a white tulle train, a Tiffany necklace and matching pearl headpiece by New York designer Lelet, Williams posed for photos and showed off her baby bump.
“Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the three of us to the Met Gala,” she wrote on Instagram before the event in New York.
Williams and Ohanian got engaged in December 2016, then tied the knot in November 2017, just two months following the arrival of their daughter, Olympia.
