Serena Williams’s French Open Maternity Style Hints at Her Baby’s Gender
Three-time French Open winner Serena Williams returned to Roland Garros on Wednesday, but this time, she wasn’t competing on the court. The 23-time Grand Slam champion, who is pregnant with her first child, was instead on-hand to watch her sister Venus Williams cruise into the second round with a straight-set victory.
Serena, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, made an appearance in the stands, showing off her burgeoning baby bump in a floral Riccardo Tisci for Nike zip-up jacket. The brand ambassador polished off the look with a white Nike tee, black leggings, and black sunglasses.
Serena’s appearance wasn’t the only big news of the day: After her match, big sister Venus accidentally revealed in an interview with Eurosport that Serena is expecting a baby girl! Hopefully, this means there will be another Williams sister dominating the ranks in the future of the Women’s Tennis Association.
But as for mom, don’t expect her to be slowing down anytime soon: The tennis champion has said that she’s expecting to see her baby watching from the stands once she gets back onto the court post-pregnancy.
