Serena Williams reveals baby bump at Met Gala

3 min read

Retired American tennis player, Serena Williams attracted attention on Monday night when she announced her second pregnancy on the red carpet of the MET Gala 2023.

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 said she was “so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala”.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the chair of the evening, and a close personal friend of Williams, who is a frequent attendee of the annual event.

Williams’s fellow tennis champion, Roger Federer, was also present at the event. The Swiss co-chaired the evening alongside Wintour and Grammy-winning songstress Dua Lipa, actress Penélope Cruz, and writer, actor, and producer Michaela Coel.

In the photos, the 41-year-old tennis great is seen posing in a black and white gown with her husband Alexis Ohanian, the founder of Reddit, and cradling the baby bump.

Williams and Ohanian are already parents to Olympia, born in September 2017.

Last year, Williams – who won 23 singles Grand Slam titles and multiple Olympic gold medals throughout her long career – bid an emotional farewell to tennis at the US Open.

“I’m ready to, like, be a mom, explore a different version of Serena,” she said at the time.

Last year, in an essay for Elle magazine, Williams described the difficulties she experienced in giving birth to Olympia, eventually via emergency C-section, and how she suffered blood clots in her lungs shortly thereafter.

Williams was not the only person to reveal a baby bump at the Met Gala; model Karlie Kloss also confirmed her second pregnancy at the event.
