Venus Williams hints that Serena is expecting a baby girl and wants her niece to be named after her

Serena Williams is expecting a baby girl according to excitable aunty Venus who might have just let it slip.

The proud aunty-to-be who is still breaking records in the absence of her sister Serena, referred to the bun in the oven as a ‘she’ at the 2017 French Open.

In an interview at the sports event after beating Kurumi Nara on Wednesday, the Mail Online reported that the 36-year-old said: ‘I want to be known as the favourite aunt.’

We’re like baby V, baby Lyn, baby Esher, we all want the baby to be named after us.’

Meanwhile, pregnant Serena who was seen cheering and supporting her sister in the audience during the game has previously admitted that she and her partner refer to their child as ‘baby’ as they want the gender to be a surprise. So if that’s the case, maybe aunty Venus just has X-ray vision?

The tennis champion who is engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, accidentally announced her pregnancy through Snapchat and has since been sharing sweet pics and videos.

Back in April she posted a cute letter to her unborn child in an Instagram post, saying: ‘I can’t wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you….’

Serena’s not the only one in her friendship circle that’s expecting, she’s also pregnant with Beyonce and the pair were seen enjoying each other’s company at Queen Bey’s African-themed push party a few weeks ago.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams revealed on Wednesday that she is pregnant, posting a photo of herself in a yellow one-piece bathing suit on the social media site Snapchat with the caption “20 weeks.”

The 35-year-old, who will return to the No. 1 ranking in the world next week, deleted the photo shortly after it appeared, and she had not commented further several hours later.

A representative for Williams declined to comment on whether the post was a confirmation that she is pregnant.

If Williams is indeed 20 weeks into her term, that would mean she was approximately two months pregnant when she captured her record 23rd Grand Slam tournament title at the Australian Open in January.

Her victory over older sister Venus Williams broke a tie with Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam singles championships in the sport’s modern era. Serena Williams has not played since, citing a knee injury.

Fans and celebrities reacted with a mixture of awe and glee to Williams’ Snapchat post.
