Serena Williams : Second child gender | Baby gender
Williams is married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. He proposed to her on December 10, 2016, in Rome.
On December 30, 2016, Williams announced their engagement in a Reddit post. They married on November 16, 2017, in New Orleans.
Guests at the wedding included Beyoncé, Anna Wintour, Kelly Rowland and Kim Kardashian. She planned to move to San Francisco with Ohanian after the wedding.
On April 19, 2017, Williams posted a sideways picture of herself on Snapchat that focused on her midsection; it had the caption, “20 weeks”, prompting speculation that she was pregnant. Later that evening, her spokesperson confirmed the pregnancy.
The fact that she was 20 weeks pregnant when announcing her pregnancy meant that she was eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open earlier that year.
Serena Williams Second child gender
Serena William and husband Alexis Ohanian are expecting baby no.2, and the couple revealed the gender of the baby in the most fun way possible.
The retired tennis player made her preference known as she arrived at the gender reveal party that also doubled as her baby shower, proudly declaring herself “team pink.” Her outfit, a pink and white skirt, and top, stylishly showcased her baby bump.
In a video of the festivities posted on YouTube, William expressed a bit of nervousness, humorously mentioning that she hadn’t prepared a “contingency plan” in case it turned out to be a boy.
The outdoor celebration featured vibrant decorations, including a rainbow-colored balloon arch, with a huge sign reading, “Our Next Great Adventure.”
Colorful balloon bouquets were displayed on long white sticks, resembling trees, and cozy matching blankets were nicely scattered around the lush grounds for the guests to relax on.
Ohanian decided to add a playful twist to the gender reveal moment, which surprised the 41-year-old, who was unaware of his plans. Instead of the conventional pink or blue cake, he ordered a yellow cake to throw her off.
The dad whispered in the video to the camera, “I’m doing this because I want to troll her and Olympia into thinking that this is the reveal of Jelly Bean,” which is the cute nickname they have for their baby.
The actual gender reveal though left everyone in absolute aww, and the soon-to-be dad of 2 made sure to make it extra special. He called on the DJ to set the mood with music and asked everyone to look up at the sky. Soon, drones illuminated the sky, forming the word “Girl!” in a spectacular display.
Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, shared the news Monday via YouTube where they posted a recap of their hybrid baby shower and gender reveal party. The couple learned the sex of their “Jelly Bean” with a nighttime drone display coordinated by Ohanian.
The Grand Slam champion, 41, took followers behind the scenes at the outdoor summer party, which included a dunk tank, food truck, picnic blankets, a choreographed dance and music by DJ Mike Wise. Before the reveal, Williams, who was firmly “Team Pink,” said that she felt nervous because she didn’t have “any contingency plan” if the baby was a boy.
The Compton-raised superstar announced her second pregnancy in May, confirming the news by debuting her growing belly at the Met Gala.
Williams and Ohanian welcomed Olympia in September 2017, two months prior to their nuptials in New Orleans. The athlete — who was two months pregnant when she won the Australian Open in 2017 — later shared that she gave birth to her daughter by emergency C-section and survived multiple postpartum complications and surgeries after Olympia arrived.
The revelations underscored the high maternal mortality rate among Black women in the United States.
Williams also revealed her second pregnancy shortly after announcing her “evolution” away from tennis and writing an essay for Vogue that explained her 2022 decision to focus on expanding her family.
