Babyville! Serena Williams had a 1950’s-themed baby shower on Saturday, August 5, and many of her celebrity friends were there to shower her with lots of love.
The glowing mom-to-be looked fabulous while dressed in ’50s garb, wearing black-and-white saddle shoes and a yellow poodle skirt. Her hair was held back by a red bandana and she wore a set of pearls to complete the look.
Williams’ guests also got into the theme: Longoria wore a red-and-black polka dot dress and a high ponytail, while Ciara wore a gray poodle skirt with a pink poodle on the side. Anthony and Rowland wore checkered tops with bandanas and sunglasses. Williams’ sister, Venus Williams, also dressed to impress by wearing a black-and-white polka dot dress, and a red hat to match her red shoes.
The ladies took full advantage of the nostalgic props nearby, posing for various photos in front of a red vintage pickup truck and a red jukebox, and then sharing the shots with the hashtag #ShakeRattleandRoll2017.
The tennis star, 35, is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Williams accidentally announced she was pregnant in April by sharing what was meant to be a private photo of her baby bump publicly on Snapchat. They have yet to find out whether they’re having a boy or girl, but Ohanian revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that the couple has a “hunch” that Williams will deliver a baby girl.
“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,” the internet entrepreneur explained to Kimmel on August 1.
The couple got engaged in December 2016 after more than a year of dating.
