Met Gala 2023. Tennis Legend Serena Williams Reveals Second Pregnancy
Met Gala 2023 - the fashion industry’s biggest night of the year - brought together personalities from music, cinema, fashion, and sports. Maybe the most sparkling guest was Serena Williams, who confirmed she was pregnant.
Serena Williams stunned in a Gucci gown accessorized with Tiffany jewelry. In a red-carpet interview with LaLa Anthony for Vogue, Williams said she was excited to finally share her big secret with the world.
"I feel good now. I can breathe," Williams said. "I don't have to hide anymore".

"There’s three of us here,” Williams told Vogue in a live stream on the red carpet.
"I’m good, I’m feeling good now," she added. "I can breathe, I can stop–not hiding, but."
On the red carpet, her husband, Alexis Ohanian, also dressed in Gucci, cradled Williams’ bump in a sweet gesture.
"Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala," Williams wrote later on Instagram with photos of herself with a pregnant belly.
Serena Williams, who retired from tennis after last year's US Open, has a daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. born in 2017.
Last year, Williams wrote in Vogue magazine that she wanted to move away from tennis and focus on growing her family.
Model Karlie Kloss Also Confirmed Her Second Pregnancy At The Event.
Earlier the same evening, Karlie Kloss used her red carpet moment to show off her own bump and confirm her pending addition as well. It's also Kloss's second child.
Another star from the tennis world who attend Met Gala was Roger Federer. Williams' fellow tennis champion was also co-chaired the evening alongside Wintour and Grammy-winning songstress Dua Lipa, actress Penélope Cruz and writer, actor, and producer Michaela Coel.
Federer appeared on the red carpet wearing James Bond-style sunglasses. His wife, Mirka, wore a pale pink dress that attracted many eyes.
This year, the Met Gala had as its theme the celebration of Karl Lagerfeld.
