'Olympia does not know right now that I am pregnant'

In an Instagram post not long prior to going out to the Met, Williams had told her followers that she hadn't said anything about being pregnant to her little girl yet. "Olympia does not know right now that I am pregnant, so the big reveal will be at the Met, and then before we leave, I'll tell Olympia," said the former athlete. The video includes Williams' voice as well as glimpses into her Met Gala preparations and her positive pregnancy test. "The reason I haven't told her is because she can't keep a secret."



She would proceed to tell her daughter just before she and her significant other left to go to the Met Gala in New York City in her custom Gucci outfit. The couple made a point of showing off a prominent baby bump on the Metropolitan Museum of Art red carpet, which sparked a media frenzy, as per reports.

'I can breathe. I can stop [hiding]'

She stopped to talk to Vogue employee Lala Anthony as they made their way through the crowd of photographers. Joked about her "new addition" attending their first Met Gala and gave a brief pregnancy update during that conversation. "I feel pretty good. I can breathe. I can stop [hiding]," Williams said to Anthony. She went on to post a carousel of pictures of her Met Gala outfit on Instagram the following evening, writing that she "was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala."


On September 1, 2017, the couple, who have been together for more than five years, welcomed their daughter Alexis Olympia, who goes by the name Olympia. The tennis star hasn't said when she'll give birth, but most women don't tell people until after the first trimester. Keeping this in mind, Bazaar magazine reports that if Williams is at least three months pregnant, her second child could be born sometime between August and October, as per reports.
