Serena Williams isn’t necessarily picking out pink decorations for her baby’s nursery.
This week, Serena Williams’ sister, Venus Williams, sparked rumors when she was said to have accidentally revealed the sex of Serena’s unborn baby.
In an interview with Eurosport after her second-round French Open victory, Venus gushed about what her niece or nephew may call her someday.
“She’s going to call me ‘favorite aunt’ ... Every day we’re like, ‘Baby Vee, Baby Isher, Baby Lyn,’ so we all want the baby to be named after us,” Venus told the reporter.
Following the rumors that Serena and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expecting a girl, Serena Williams released a statement on Twitter and clarified that they want to be surprised at the birth:
Williams surprised fans when she shared in a post on Snapchat the news that she and Ohanian were expecting.
Ohanian recently gushed about his bride-to-be and the mother of his child when they appeared on the red carpet at the Met Gala in May.
“She has the biggest heart,” he told Humans of New York. “Everyone sees her success as an athlete, but all of that is layered on the size of her heart. She gives 100 percent of herself to everything she does: as a friend, as a lover and soon, as a mother.”
