Pregnant female tennis superstar Serena Williams has revealed that she and her fiancé are yet to know the sex of their baby.
She made the revelation on May 1 at the 2017 Met Gala. Speaking to Vogue Magazine’s Andre Leon Talley, she described the wait as a “surprise”. When pressed for any name for the baby yet, she responded that for now they simply addressed the pregnancy as “baby”.
The 35-year-old Williams is engaged to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit. It will be recalled that the couple made public their engagement in December 2016.
They have talked severally about the excitement of becoming first time parents with Ohanian quoted as saying he was feeling “really good”.
The Met Gala is Serena’s first appearance on the red carpet since she announced she was pregnant on 19 April.
Barely a week after the announcement, the multiple grand slam winners stated that her announcement about the pregnancy on snapchat was by “mistake”. She said this in Vancouver at a TED conference on April 25.
