As for Williams and Ohanian, they have yet to reveal when they will become parents. Williams has been public about her desire to have a second child with her husband while also maintaining that they are not pregnant yet. Ohanian has yet to give a statement about whether or not he plans on having any more children.
Serena Williams certainly knows how to pick her moment. Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, waited until the Met Gala 2023 to confirm that they are expecting baby No. 2. “Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala,” Williams captioned a pic of her and Ohanian at the event, with her showing off a burgeoning baby bump.
The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., in September 2017. Williams divulged in a 2022 Vogue essay that another baby was in the works. She admitted that Olympia kept asking her for a little sister to play with and that she was stepping back from the tennis court to enjoy some more quality family time.
So, it was happy news for all of Williams’ fans but a sad night for cat lovers. ABC reported that Karl Lagerfeld’s pampered kitty, Choupette, wouldn’t be attending. The multi-millionaire feline took to Instagram to announce that she “preferred to stay peacefully and cozy at home” rather than honor her “daddy.” Thankfully, all the hundreds of other attendees were happy to step into Choupette’s paws — while she lazed around on a mink cushion in her Upper East Side mansion, eating caviar and counting her diamonds. Just as the late great fashion icon would have wanted.
