Tennis superstar and first time mama-to-be, Serena Williams, got together with a whole bunch of her famous gal pals over the weekend to celebrate the impending arrival of her bub.
The reigning Australian Open women’s champ is due to pop with weeks, according to speculation from fans. And even though she’s taking a break from the court, Serena still knows how to deliver an ace party!
In true diva style, Serena almost broke the internet when she announced her pregnancy back in April with a blink and you missed it Snapchat post where she showed off her 20 week baby bump in a bright yellow cossie.
Since then, the 35 year old hasn’t been shy about showing off her growing baby belly, regularly posting bump shots on Instagram, often alongside baby daddy, fiance and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
Inside the Serena Williams baby shower
The ‘50s themed baby shower was held at a retro Miami diner appropriately renamed the ‘Baby O Diner‘. Serena and gal pals Ciara, Eva Longoria, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland and sister Venus Williams chowed down on retro diner fare.
Even Alexis got in on the baby shower action, sporting a rockabilly greaser hairstyle and some cool kicks as he hammed it up with his baby mama. The pair met in Rome and got engaged in December 2016.
While the sex of the baby hasn’t yet been announced, proud daddy-to-be Alexis recently shared with Jimmy Kimmel that the couple are thinking pink. “We have our hunches,” said the tech entrepreneur. “She [Serena] put it really well — she won the Australian Open while pregnant, and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a girl because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on.” Amen to that!
