Women’s tennis legend Serena Williams on Monday confirmed she is pregnant with her second child at the Met Gala event.
The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion told reporters at the New York fashion show that, there were “three of us” on the red carpet when she arrived with her husband Alexis Ohanian who is the co-founder of reddit.
The couple welcomed their first daughter, Olympia, 6 years ago in the month of October.
Williams wrote in Vogue magazine last year that she wanted to evolve away from the sport so she focus on growing her family.
The Met Gala is an annual invitation-only fundraiser for the Costume Institute, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In a TikTok post on Monday, Williams disclosed she was “so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala”.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was the chair of the evening, and a close friend of Williams, who is a frequent attendee of the annual event.
