Earlier this month Serena revealed the gender of her daughter alongside her husband at a party.
The tennis player and her spouse first met when they ran into each other at a hotel in Rome in May of 2015, and they began dating not long afterward.
The pair went on to become engaged in December of 2016, and they welcomed daughter Olympia the following September.
The two subsequently tied the knot during a star-studded wedding ceremony that took place in New Orleans that November.
Another one: Williams announced that she had become pregnant for the second time just before the Met Gala this past May
Williams announced that she had become pregnant for the second time just before the Met Gala this past May.
The former athlete spoke about motherhood during an interview with Vogue, where she expressed that she did not see herself as a parent during her younger years.
‘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,’ she said.
Williams then expressed that she had since learned to embrace parenthood and remarked that she had become particularly attached to her daughter.
‘The fact is that nothing is a sacrifice for me when it comes to Olympia. It all just makes sense,’ she said.
