Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian Reveal They're Having a Baby Girl in Sweet Video

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian are having a girl! Williams broke the news in a YouTube video posted on July 31, which shows her, Ohanian, and their 5-year-old daughter Olympia watching a lights show that eventually forms the words "It's a girl" in the sky.

The retired tennis icon first broke the news about her pregnancy on the red carpet at the 2023 Met Gala on May 1. While speaking to La La Anthony for Vogue's live stream from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's steps, Williams revealed that there were "three" people on her and husband Ohanian's date night. "I'm feeling good now. I can breathe," Williams said of finally sharing the news. "I can stop hiding."

The former athlete also posted photos of her Gucci look for the evening on Instagram, and wrote in the caption, "Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala."

The news broke not long after Williams retired from tennis following the 2022 US Open last fall. Leading up to her retirement, Williams spoke to Vogue about loving being "an incredibly hands-on mother." "My husband [Alexis Ohanian] will tell you I am too hands-on," she said. "In five years, Olympia has only spent one 24-hour period away from me. This past year, while I was recovering from a hamstring injury, I got to pick her up from school four or five days a week, and I always looked forward to seeing her face light up when she walked out of the building and saw me waiting there for her."
