Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian Welcome First Child: A Girl

Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian.

The tennis champ, 35, and her Reddit co-founder fiancé, 34, have welcomed their first child – a girl – on Friday (Sept. 1), Us Weekly reports.

The newborn arrived at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, weighing in at 6 lbs., 13 oz.

No further information – including the baby’s name – has been announced at this time.

The tennis pro recently opened up about her surprise delivery.

“Alexis thinks we’re having a boy, but I have a strong suspicion that it’s a girl,” she shared. “Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”

As for her birth plan, she admitted to being nervous.

“I’m nervous about childbirth,” she said. “I’m not a spring chicken. The one thing I really want is an epidural, which I know a lot of people are against, but I’ve had surgeries galore, and I don’t need to experience any more pain if I can avoid it.”

Congratulations to the Williams-Ohanian family!
