Pregnant tennis ace Serena Williams says she does not want to find out the sex of her child.
The 35 year old said she wanted to wait so it would be a surprise, revealing that she and her fiance, the Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33, were simply calling their little one “baby” at the moment until they know whether they need a boy’s name or a girl’s.
The sporting champ spoke about her pregnancy while on the red carpet at the Met gala. While it is notoriously tricky to find red carpet wear with a baby bump, Serena looked the picture of elegance in a custom Versace gown in emerald green.
She has previously said that she accidentally revealed her pregnancy news to the world after accidentally hitting the button on Snapchat to release a photo of herself 20 weeks’ pregnant.
Serena said she had been taking images of herself so she could privately chart her pregnancy journey. However, she ended up accidentally hitting the wrong button. She only realised her mistake when messages and phone calls started coming through to her in quick succession.
She quickly deleted the post, but later confirmed through her publicist that she was indeed 20 weeks’ pregnant.
