Serena Williams says wedding to Alexis Ohanian 'hasn't happened yet'
UPI News Service, 07/14/2017
Bride-to-be Serena Williams says her wedding to fiance Alexis Ohanian "hasn't happened yet."
The 35-year-old tennis star denied she and the 34-year-old Reddit co-founder married in secret while discussing her pregnancy in an interview with E! News published Thursday.
"It hasn't happened yet, not that I am aware of!" she said of her nuptials. "We are still waiting. There was a bridal shower, and after the bridal comes the bachelorette [party]. Which is not gonna happen right now!"
Williams got engaged to Ohanian in December, and announced her pregnancy in April. She said she's been "really fortunate" to have "a really good pregnancy" thus far.
"Everything has just been really good," the star said. "Sometimes I am walking in my house, and I'm like, 'I really like being pregnant.' I never thought I would say that. I am definitely [the type] that enjoys it."
"I don't have the [food] cravings," she added. "So I am a little disappointed with that. But I am OK with it because I feel like, maybe if I had the cravings, I would have a tougher pregnancy."
Ohanian couldn't help but gush about Williams in a recent interview with the CNBC series Squawk in the Box. He said he will help support the tennis star by taking parental leave after she gives birth.
"My fiancee is doing an awesome job," the Reddit co-founder lauded. "She's very good at a lot of things and well on her way to being an awesome mom, too."
"At Reddit, it's really important for us to support men and women when they are welcoming a new member to the family," he said. "I'll be taking off for six weeks myself and trying to do the best job possible as a new dad."
