The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion debuted her growing baby bump alongside her husband Alexis Ohanian, 40, on the red carpet at the Met Gala in New York City on May 1.
But it turns out she had only just told her five-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia that she was going to be a big sister just hours before the rest of the world did.
In an Instagram post just before heading out to the Met, Williams revealed that she hadn’t shared the pregnancy news with her daughter yet.
‘Olympia does not know right now that I am pregnant, so the big reveal will be at the Met, and then before we leave, I’ll tell Olympia,’ Williams can be heard in the clip, which also features behind-the-scenes peeks at her Met Gala prep — and her positive pregnancy test. ‘The reason I haven’t told her is because she can’t keep a secret.’
She would go on to break the news to her daughter right before she and her husband left to attend the Met Gala in New York City in her custom Gucci gown.
One on the red carpet at Metropolitan Museum of Art, the couple made a point of showing off a prominent baby bump, which set off a frenzy with the media on the scene.
While making their way in front of the sea on photographers gathered, she stopped to chat with Lala Anthony, who was working for Vogue. During that conversation joked about her ‘new addition’ being at their first Met Gala and shared a small pregnancy update.
‘I feel pretty good,” she said. ‘I can breathe. I can stop [hiding].’ Williams confessed during the brief chat.
