Alexis Ohanian Said the Sweetest Thing About Future Wife Serena Williams

Plus, a baby update!

 

This year just seems to get better and better for Serena Williams. Not only has she continued her streak of victories on the tennis court, she's also happily engaged, expecting a baby, and still making killer fashion choices. Did you see her Met Gala look? Incredible. Great style wasn't the only highlight of her Met Gala night—the professional athlete's fiancé Alexis Ohanian also opened up to Humans of New York photographer Brandon Stanton about what he loves most about Williams. And the details are adorable.

"She has the biggest heart," Ohanian was quoted as saying in the Humans of New York Instagram post that followed. "Everyone sees her success as an athlete, but all of that is layered on the size of her heart. She gives 100% of herself to everything she does: as a friend, as a lover, and soon, as a mother." Sorry, but does anyone have a tissue handy? Who needs The Notebook when there are Instagram posts like this?

 

That's not the only relationship update we got from this couple at the Met Gala. It turns out Williams and Ohanian don't yet know the gender of their child—and tey don't want to. "We're waiting," Williams told Vogue, according to the Daily Mail. "It's a surprise. We call it, 'baby.'" The athlete announced her pregnancy on social media just a few weeks ago, and we're so happy to see she's showing off her adorable baby bump in public now!

 

So, any guesses on the gender of the baby? We bet he or she is going to be an absolute rockstar on the tennis court!
