Serena Williams is joining a slew of A-lister parents who proudly show off their pregnancy body, as she covers Vanity Fair in a stunning new shoot. The 35-year-old beauty shares how she is handling becoming a mom, plus her new life with fiancé Alexis Ohanian.
Turns out Serena is not as prepared as she would be for let's say, a tennis match, when it comes to motherhood. She revealed, “I don’t know what to do with a baby. I have nothing.... I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room.” Luckily, it turns out Alexis is staying on top of things, and even has a jar he has to put money in each time he curses so he doesn't do it when the baby arrives.
And while Serena and Alexis have been dating for over a year, they've managed to keep their relationship very quiet, but finally open up about how he proposed. He shocked her by proposing during a trip he asked her to join him on in Italy while she was training for a tournament. While she was confused as to why he would book a trip during her practice sessions, she soon found out when he dropped down on one knee in the same hotel room they'd booked a year ago. Aw!
Serena says now about the special occasion, "I knew it was coming. I was like, ‘Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want.’ ”
As for how they keep the relationship going with their busy schedules, Serena said the two see each other every weekend and will be in a bi-coastal relationship until marriage.
