Tennis superstar Serena Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, surprised the world with news of their second pregnancy at the 2023 Met Gala. Now, Serena has shared new details about the reveal in a video on her newly launched YouTube channel.
In the video, Serena revealed that their five-year-old daughter, Olympia, did not know she was going to be a big sister until the day of the Met Gala.
“The reason I haven’t told her is because she can’t keep a secret,” Serena said, laughing. The video showed footage of Serena getting ready for the Met Gala, and cut off as Serena and Alexis began to tell Olympia about the baby.
Serena also teased that more details about the special moment will be shared in a future YouTube video. “Stay tuned … link in bio to subscribe,” she wrote in the video’s caption.
Serena announced her retirement from tennis in August 2022, saying that she wanted to focus on expanding her family. The tennis star has previously been open about the challenges she faced during her first pregnancy and childbirth, including life-threatening complications. However, she has also expressed her desire to have more children and expand her family.
Fans of Serena and Alexis were thrilled to hear the news of their second pregnancy and eagerly await more updates on the couple’s growing family.
