Serena Williams is several months pregnant and expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian – and the tennis star thinks she’s having a baby girl.
“We’re going to be surprised. I will say this, though: We have our hunches. She put it really well, actually. Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a little girl, because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on,” Alexis, co-founder of Reddit, said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week.
“I was very lucky to be raised by a very strong, amazing mother—and she’s got a good point. This is our first child. If anything, it’s really just reinforced how just amazing and strong and powerful and awesome women we are, and how useless we are during this whole thing. Because it’s like, ‘I can make you a grilled cheese. Does this help?’ We are worthless!” he continued.
Alexis also spoke about how he wasn’t a tennis fan before he began dating one of the best to ever play the game.
“She’s actually offered to give me lessons. I turned them down. Because I want to be the only person in the world who would ever turn down Serena Williams for tennis lessons—and because I know there was no benefit to her seeing me be that bad,” he added.
