Her instincts have made her arguably the greatest women’s tennis player of all time. And pregnant Serena Williams is apparently using those championship instincts to predict the sex of her child.
The 35-year-old athlete thinks she is going to have a baby girl according to her fiancee Alexis Ohanian.
The 34-year-old Reddit co-founder appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday as he talked about the possible sex of their soon-to-be-born child as he said: ‘We’re going to be surprised.
‘I will say this, though: We have our hunches. She put it really well, actually.
‘Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a little girl, because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on.’
It is not just the influence of his future wife that has made Alexis believe in Girl Power as he explained: ‘I was very lucky to be raised by a very strong, amazing mother—and she’s got a good point.
‘This is our first child. If anything, it’s really just reinforced how just amazing and strong and powerful and awesome women we are, and how useless we are during this whole thing. Because it’s like, “I can make you a grilled cheese. Does this help?” We are worthless!’
Last month Serena revealed on Instagram that she was going to let their baby’s sex be revealed at birth.
