Serena Williams reveals she’s pregnant with baby No. 2 at Met Gala 2023


Serena Williams’ second baby is on the way. The athlete announced that her and husband Alexis Ohanian’s family is expanding while walking the Met Gala 2023 red carpet Monday.

The pregnant tennis pro’s budding belly — and new bob hairstyle — were on display in a black Gucci gown as she posed for pics.

Williams’ plunging dress featured sheer sleeves and a white tulle skirt.

She completed the curve-hugging maternity look with a layered pearl necklace and matching headband.

“I’m feeling good. I can breathe. I can stop not hiding,” the tennis pro, 41, gushed on her way inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, joking about her big plans to “not drink.”

Minutes ahead of her red carpet reveal, Williams shared her pregnancy news with her Instagram followers.

“Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala,” she captioned sweet social media snaps cradling her stomach.


Williams and Ohanian, who have been married since November 2017, are already the parents of 5-year-old daughter Olympia. The little one was born in September 2017.

Two years later, the Olympian told Page Six that she wanted to give her child a sibling as close to her age as her own older sister, Venus Williams.

Serena Williams gave much thought to looking for the perfect balance between her professional and family life and then decided to retire from tennis to focus on her family.

She wrote a very emotional essay about her retirement “I have never liked the word retirement. It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition, but I want to be sensitive about how I use that word, which means something very specific and important to a community of people. Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution.”

Serena Williams continued; “I‘m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me. A few years ago I quietly started Serena Ventures, a venture capital firm. Soon after that, I started a family. I want to grow that family.”
