“She’s going to call me ‘favorite aunt,'” Venus said during her post-match interview with Eurosport after winning the second round of the French Open on Wednesday.. “Every day we’re like, ‘Baby Vee, baby Isher, baby Lyn,’ so we all want the baby to be named after us.”
Not so fast, Serena relayed in an Instagram post essentially saying the pronoun “he” is not common in their household so that’s the reason Venus used that word. Hmmm….
“To clarify what Venus said, I am always joking with my sisters to see what favors I can get them [to] do for me next,” Serena Williams wrote in the “words” photo. “If I want something from one of my sisters, I say ‘Baby Venus, Baby Lyn, or Baby Isha needs it.’ I did not grow up with any brothers, only sisters and we all say ‘she’ more than ‘he.’ ”
Serena has previously said she planned to wait until the birth to reveal the baby’s gender.
“I think the surprise of knowing what you are going to have on that very special day you give birth is probably the best surprise you can ever have,” she said.
Now we will know it is the truth if they have a boy! The Grand Slam champ accidentally announced on Snapchat this past Aprail that she and co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child.
