35-year-old Tennis Superstar, Serena Williams who is carrying her first baby stripped down for Vanity fair in a very risqué shoot by longtime collaborator Annie Leibowitz , who first shot Williams alongside her sister Venus, when she was 16 years old.
The Tennis star also talked about how surprised she is to find out that She’s pregnant, barely a week to Australia Open in January this year (2017). In an interview with contributing editor Buzz Bissinger.
According to Serena Williams, She relented and allow her friend Jessica Steindoff , who suspected it was not merely her hormones acting up, buy her a pregnancy kit.
‘I’will take it just because to prove you wrong and because it’s fun, whatever. It’s like a joke. Why not?’
After taking the test, she forget about it, thinking its impossible that it could be positive. When she finally checked the results, she says she did a double take and my hearth dropped. Like literally it dropped.
Her first thought:
‘Oh my God, this can’t be—I’ve got to play a tournament. How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon (her third straight) this year.’
To further convince her of the reality, Jessica purchased five more test kits; all proved positive. After discovering she was pregnant, Serena called her boyfriend Ohanian and, without providing a reason, told him to fly to Melbourne earlier than previously planned
Now, a little more than six months pregnant, she is facing the reality that she is indeed having a baby with her soon-to-be husband.
‘it’s just doesn’t seem real. I don’t know why. Am I having a baby?’ She says
Williams tells Bissinger that, as of May, she hadn’t made any preparations:
‘I don’t know what to do with a baby.
I have nothing . I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room.’
Meanwhile, Bissingner writes that Ohanian is ‘earnestly preparing and already has a tip jar he puts money into whenever he uses profanity so he won’t utter it around the baby.’
The couple first met at the Cavalieri Hotel in Rome in May 2015 where, after Ohanian sat at the table beside hers, Serena pretended to know about Reddit, and he withheld the fact that he had ‘never watched a tennis match on television or in real life’.He’s looking forward to the marriage; Williams, on the other hand, tells Bissinger (with tongue in cheek), ‘I’m trying to enjoy the little freedom I have left.’
Their first date saw the ultra-romantic pair roam the streets of Paris for six hours while Serena was in town for the French Open. Ohanian proposed to Serena in December 2016 at virtually the same spot where he had first met her.
On Ohanian’s proposal at the Cavalieri, for which he had asked her to fly to Italy under the guise of a spontaneous trip, Serena says,
‘I knew it was coming. I was like, “Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want.”‘
Ohanian says he knew he wanted to marry Serena because she was helping him become the best version of himself: ‘I felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self,’ he says. ‘I find myself just wanting to be better by simply being around her because of the standard she holds.’
