Serena Williams published a video showing the moment when she alongside her husband Alexis Ohanian announced Olympia that she'll become a big sister. "Remember how you've been praying for a little sister or brother? Well, we went to the doctor and it turns out I'm not getting fat but I have a baby in my belly," Serena tells Olympia in the video.
"Are you kidding me?" Olympia answers. "No, you're gonna be a big sister," Alexis Ohanian adds. Watch the video below.
Serena Williams announced her pregnancy
Serena Williams has announced that she is pregnant with her second baby at the start of May.
She did it by sharing a couple of photos taken at the Met Gala on her Instagram. In one of the photos, Williams is holding her baby bump. Williams, 41, welcomed her first child in 2017 when Olympia was born. "Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala," Williams captioned her Instagram post.
Serena Williams' news was not so much a surprise because she stated in her retirement essay she published in Vogue in August 2022 that she wishes to expand her family.
"Earlier in my career, I never thought about having kids. There were times when I’ve wondered if I should ever bring kids into this world, with all its problems. I was never that confident or comfortable around babies or children, and I figured that if I ever did have a baby, I would have people taking care of it 24/7.
I’m not going to lie—I definitely have a lot of support. But I’m also an incredibly hands-on mother. My husband will tell you I am too hands-on. 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.
The fact is that nothing is a sacrifice for me when it comes to Olympia. It all just makes sense. I want to teach her how to tie her shoes, how to read, where babies come from, and about God. Just like my mom taught me," Williams wrote for Vogue in August.
