Venus Williams Tells All About Sister Serena’s New Baby!
Venus Williams is one proud aunt and big sister! The tennis star opened up about the birth of her little sister Serena Williams’ baby girl with fiancé Alex Ohanian, who they welcomed into the world on September 1, while talking to reporters during the US Open.
"I'm super excited," Venus exclaimed when asked by ESPN about becoming an aunt again, right before winning her third-round match. "Words can't describe."
In her post-match press conference though, Venus asked that questions stick to the sport and not her family. "I'm definitely available to answer questions about tennis," the four-time US Open champion said. “That's all right now."
However, some questions managed to slip in about her sis and doubles partner, Serena.
"We always talk," Venus told reporters. "We always talk, so she's always encouraging me. Yeah, from every step of the way, every match, always."
Venus did confirm that she talked to Serena on the phone before her match and even called the conversation “motivational.”
Coincidently, the same day Serena welcomed her little one into the world, Friday, Venus advanced to the fourth round of the US Open. #GoodLuckCharm
