See the moment Serena Williams and husband Alexis Ohanian reveal the pregnancy to their daughter

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian waited for the perfect moment to tell their daughter, Alexis Olympia, that she was going to be a big sister. And when they did, it was pure joy.

The tennis star and her husband are expecting their second child together. They made the big reveal at the 2023 Met Gala earlier this month.

And in her new YouTube video posted May 23, it appears their 5-year-old was made aware of the news a day before the rest of the world found out.

“Olympia doesn’t know I’m pregnant right now, but she did call me fat and then she got really stressed. She was like ‘Mommy you’re fat,'” Williams says in her video after showing her positive pregnancy test see .m, like, ‘Um, am I?’”

The video then shows the three of them sitting on the couch on the day of the Met Ball and telling Olympia the news.

“Do you remember how you prayed for a sister or brother?” says Williams. “Well, we went to the doctor and it turns out I’m not getting fat, but I have a baby in my belly.”

The 5-year-old then asks, “Are you kidding me?” as her parents tell her that she is going to be a big sister.

Olympia then hugs her mother, screams and says “Oh my god! I’m so excited!”

After Williams shows her her belly, Olympia jumps off the couch and runs around the house, screaming how excited she is.

However, upon discovering the big news came one caveat: Olympia had to wait a day to tell anyone their big secret.

The tennis star previously shared a clip from her YouTube video, in which she shared how they didn’t want to tell their daughter the news “because she can’t keep a secret.”

Later in the full video, the 23-time Grand Slam winner shared how the Met Gala would be “such a big moment” for her.

“I am announcing to the world that I am pregnant. I’m expecting my second child, which is exciting,” she says. “This is a really important time where this is the look I’m going to show my daughter or my son when they’re born one day.”

“They’ll look back and they’ll see, this is how mom expressed herself and told everyone she was pregnant with you,” she continued. “And you want this moment to be completely iconic and completely new, yet very special. I think it went well.”

For the event, Williams wore a custom black Gucci dress with silver embellishment with sheer sleeves, white cuffs and a tulle mermaid skirt. She completed the look, inspired by this year’s Karl Lagerfeld theme, with Tiffany & Co. pearls draping around her necklace and her Lelet pearl headband.
