Tennis legend Serena Williams has shared the delightful news that she's expecting a beautiful baby girl with husband Alexis Ohanian!
The sporting champion, 41 – who is already mother to her five year old daughter Olympia – made their heart-warming announcement last night in utter celebrity style.
Serena's beloved friends and family had arranged a "baby shower-slash-gender reveal" party for her to celebrate she and Alexis' incoming addition, revealing she'd attended the soiree as a representative of 'Team Pink', believing they were having a girl.
In a YouTube video uploaded yesterday, the star – who last year revealed that Prince Harry helped with her decision to retire from tennis – was seen wearing a sweet pink and white top, showing off her blossoming baby bump.
She told viewers on the clip: "I'm a little nervous because I don't have any contingency plan if it turns out to be a boy."
The lavish outdoor celebration saw rainbow balloons adorning a stunning arch, which surrounded a sign reading, "Out Next Great Adventure", as well as multicoloured balloon bouquets sitting on long white sticks, resembling trees.
Matching rainbow blankets were also scattered around the plush green grass, giving Serena and Alexis' guests the opportunity to relax and soak up some sun.
DJ Mike Wise supplied the toe-tapping tunes for the family celebration, which also came with an exclusive dance area and a dunk tank for brave attendees to enjoy.
But on top of the family-friendly activities, Alexis had an extra special trick up his sleeve to give mum-of-two-to-be Serena – who announced her pregnancy on the Met Galal red carpet earlier this year – a baby shower she'd never forget.
He'd actually ordered a yellow cake – which he later threw at the tennis star – as opposed to the standard blue or pink cake, in order to throw her off.
"I want to troll her and Olympia into thinking that this is the reveal of Jelly Bean," the video saw him whisper into the camera. "She'll cut into this cake and probably be disappointed and hopefully appreciate my troll, but we'll see.
"I don't know if she's going to be profesional about it. She might see this cake come out, roll her eyes and say, 'This guy had one job and he gave me a goddamn cake gender reveal. But we'll see. There's a reveal after the reveal."
After cutting into the tampered-with cake and discovering it was yellow, Serena hilarious squashed the sweet treat into her husband's face.
Alexis then laughed: "We are actually going to reveal Jelly Bean’s sex. The way we’re going to do it, though, is with a little style and some spectacular lights."
He then called on the DJ to give them some music, asking him to "draw attention to the heavens", after which a display of drones lit up the sky, spelling out the word 'Girl!'.
Serena debuted her baby bump on the cream carpet of the Met Gala in New York in May, telling Vogue magazine at the time: "There’s three of us here. I’m good, I’m really good now. I can breathe, I can stop, I’m not hiding but… yeah."
