Serena Williams Had an Adorable 1950's-Themed Baby Shower And Everybody Was There — See The Pics
Serena Williams is a champion and she brings us joy. 

Her baby bump is currently being highlighted in all of its glory on the cover of Stellar magazine. That’s cool! 

The photoshoot was accompanied by a great interview, in which she discusses her pregnancy, feminism, and breaking barriers.

“There are barriers I hope to break so my baby, whether boy or girl, won’t have to live under those stipulations,” the tennis star said.

“I definitely am a feminist. I like to stick up for women and women’s rights. So many things happen and I just think, ‘Wow, why don’t we have a chance?' […] If that makes me a feminist, I am proud to be one,” she explained.

This isn’t her first time talking about feminism. Obviously
She actually recently penned an essay on the gender wage gap for Fortune, in honor of Black Women’s Equal Pay Day.

“Together, we will change the story – but we are going to have to fight for every penny,” Serena wrote. “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 and her fiancé Alexis Ohanian got engaged in December of last year and are expecting their first child in a month. Neither of them have confirmed the sex of the baby, but Alexis shared a funny and sweet story on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week.

The verdict is still out on whether Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian are having a boy or girl, but Alexis is a little convinced that his first child will be a girl. Get an understanding of the Reddit co-founder's reasoning in the clip on the site. #linkinbio🔥🔥🔥🔥 #bck#serenawilliams #alexohanian

“She won the Australian Open while pregnant. She remarked that she feels it has to be a girl because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ — only a woman could be strong enough to take on,” he quipped.

We are still busy swooning over the social media snaps of her baby shower, by the way; it was both star-studded and adorably-themed. The guest list included celebs like Kelly Rowland, Ciara, La La Anthony, Eva Longoria and Angie Beyince. Costumes were worn. It was glorious.
