Serena Williams Expecting Baby #2, Debuts Bump at Met Gala 2023
The Met Gala marked a night of pregnancy announcements as Serena Williams and Karlie Kloss debuted their baby bumps!
Both women are expecting a second child, and chose fashion's biggest night to share the happy news with the world.
Serena, 41, is having another child with her husband Alexis Ohanian, while Karlie will welcome hers with husband Joshua Kushner.
Serena debuted her growing baby bump in a Gucci look.
Along with posting a series of photos on Instagram, Williams wrote, “Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala.”
A few months ago, the tennis legend expressed her wishes to grow her family. In an essay for Vogue, she wrote, “In the last year, Alexis and I have been trying to have another child. And we recently got some information from my doctor that put my mind at ease and made me feel that whenever we're ready, we can add to our family. I definitely don't want to be pregnant again as an athlete. I need to be two feet into tennis or two feet out."
Serena and Alexis are also the parents of daughter Olympia, 5.
Explaining her need to step away from tennis, Serena noted, “Don't get me wrong: I love being a woman, and I loved every second of being pregnant with Olympia. I was one of those annoying women who adored being pregnant and was working until the day I had to report to the hospital — although things got super complicated on the other side.”
“And I almost did do the impossible: A lot of people don't realize that I was two months pregnant when I won the Australian Open in 2017,” Williams added. “But I'm turning 41 this month, and something's got to give."
Meanwhile, “Extra’s” Adam Glassman spoke with Karlie and congratulated her on her pregnancy, “Karlie, mazel tov.” She replied, “Thank you!”
This year’s Met Gala theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” which honors the late designer who worked with several fashion houses for many years.
Kloss’ skintight black dress was inspired by a 1983 Chanel dress designed by Lagerfeld, according to Vogue, and she told Glassman the look was “designed by Jonathan [Anderson] from Loewe,” calling it “an interpretation of my favorite Karl design.”
The model shared of Lagerfeld, “I feel lucky that… I was able to work with him many times in my career. I am excited to see the exhibition.”
Adam noted, “Baby’s first Met Gala, wow.” Karlie shared, “Yes, I know, it’s going to be a very special night. It already is.”
Karlie and Joshua are already parents to son Levi, who was born in March 2021.
