Serena Williams' husband Alexis Ohanian was hilariously impressed by Venus Williams' reaction to the prank orchestrated by him at the family's upcoming child's gender reveal party. On August 1st, Serena Williams and her family announced the gender of their upcoming baby by providing footage from their gender reveal party held with their close ones.
The guests and Serena Williams, however, were pranked by a smooth move coming from Alexis Ohanian, who intended to confuse everyone before the final reveal. More specifically, the inside of the cake that was supposed to reveal the baby's gender was yellow, fooling everyone and determining Venus to have the reaction of the night.
"The reaction of the night from my sis Venus Williams,"
The big revelation happened after the prank in the sky thanks to a drone show planned by Ohanian.

Serena Williams was "nervous" before the gender reveal
Surprisingly or not, Serena was a little anxious at the start of the party.
"I am going to a baby shower/gender reveal so obviously I'm team pink but I'm nervous because I don't have any contingency plan if it turns out that I'm having a boy. I'm very excited, I'm a little nervous, a little anxious and Olympia's downstairs like yelling at me.
She was ready to go an hour ago," Williams said. Ohanian describes his prank as a "troll" and hoped Serena would appreciate it. “I’m doing this because I want to troll her and Olympia into thinking that this is the reveal of Jelly Bean.
She will cut into this cake and probably be disappointed and hopefully appreciate my troll. But, we’ll see. I don’t know if she’s gonna be a professional about it. She might see this cake come out, roll her eyes, and say, ‘This guy had one job and he gave me a goddamn cake gender reveal.’ But we’ll see.
there’s a reveal after the reveal," Ohanian said
