Williams and Ohanian previously discussed when they told their eldest about their family expanding. "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," the happy mama said in an Instagram video. "The reason I haven't told her is because she can't keep a secret!"

"Remember how you've been praying for a little sister or brother? Well, we went to the doctor and it turns out I'm not getting fat. But I have a baby in my belly," the athlete told Olympia, who excitedly asked, "Are you kidding me?!"
