Serena told Vogue Magazine that before she gave birth, both her and Alexis made guesses on the gender of the baby, as they wanted to wait until her birth to find out.

 She even played a major tournament after she found out she was pregnant!  She told Vogue, "Two weeks after we found out about the pregnancy, I played the Australian Open.  I told Alexis it has to be a girl because I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”  Amazing!

Serena told Vogue she has a "strong suspicion that it's a girl.” On the other side, Alexis thought it was going to be a baby boy. He was clearly wrong.
