The 35-year-old pregnant tennis star explained to the publication that her pregnancy was unexpected.

“But once I found out, something happened that surprised me,” Serena said. “I became really calm. I thought, You have to win, but you’re allowed to lose, because you have something to look forward to.”

“Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way,” Serena added.

FYI: Serena is wearing a white custom Atelier Versace dress in one photo and a Ralph Lauren dress in the other.

The Reason Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian Think They're Having a Daughter Is Amazing

Serena Williams is several months pregnant and expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian – and the tennis star thinks she’s having a baby girl.

“We’re going to be surprised. I will say this, though: We have our hunches. She put it really well, actually. Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a little girl, because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on,” Alexis, co-founder of Reddit, said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week.

“I was very lucky to be raised by a very strong, amazing mother—and she’s got a good point. This is our first child. If anything, it’s really just reinforced how just amazing and strong and powerful and awesome women we are, and how useless we are during this whole thing. Because it’s like, ‘I can make you a grilled cheese. Does this help?’ We are worthless!” he continued.

Alexis also spoke about how he wasn’t a tennis fan before he began dating one of the best to ever play the game.

“She’s actually offered to give me lessons. I turned them down. Because I want to be the only person in the world who would ever turn down Serena Williams for tennis lessons—and because I know there was no benefit to her seeing me be that bad,” he added.

Serena Williams Fights For Equal Pay For Black Women in Moving Essay

Serena Williams is speaking out in honor of Black Women’s Equal Pay Day.

The 35-year-old tennis star penned a moving essay acknowledging “the many realities black women face every day,” including that black women make 63 cents for every dollar a white man earns.

“Growing up, I was told I couldn’t accomplish my dreams because I was a woman and, more so, because of the color of my skin. In every stage of my life, I’ve had to learn to stand up for myself and speak out,” Serena wrote.

She went on to discuss what needs to be done and how changes can be made in the workplace, which mostly importantly includes speaking out about the issue.

Serena added, “Black women: Be fearless. Speak out for equal pay. Every time you do, you’re making it a little easier for a woman behind you. Most of all, know that you’re worth it. It can take a long time to realize that. It took me a long time to realize it. But we are all worth it. I’ve long said, ‘You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.’”
