AceShowbiz - Serena Williams may soon have some good news for her fans after announcing her retirement. The former No. 1 woman tennis player has fueled speculation that she's having another baby on the way after walking the Vogue World runway.
At the event to celebrate 130 years of the iconic magazine, the former tennis ace opened the show on Monday, September 12 by walking the runway in curve-skimming custom Balenciaga tank dress with a cape in silver laminated jersey. She added glamor with a pair of massive earrings as she strutted her stuff on Fulton Street in downtown Manhattan.
Serena was later joined by model sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid at Vogue World's grand finale. Wearing matching silver outfits, they walked hand-in-hand set to Lil Nas X's performance of "Industry Baby".
While Serena stunned everyone with her appearance that night, social media users couldn't help noticing her belly that popped up underneath the cape. Many pointed out that the mother of one seems to be sporting a baby bump.
"Serena's so pregnant," one Instagram user commented on Serena's photos at the fashion event. Another reacted with delight, "oh wow. i had no idea she was pregnant again. aww congrats to her. she deserve."
Others also showered Serena with congratulatory messages despite no confirmation yet on her supposed pregnancy. "Mamas is glowing looking like Venus. Congratulations," a third wrote, as another echoed the sentiment, "Didn't know she was expecting again. Congrats."
"she looks beautiful!! happy for her if true!!" another fan reacted to the news, while one other person sent well wishes to Serena, "Olympia is getting a sibling! I hope Serena has an uneventful pregnancy and delivery." Another fan wondered, "Wait! Does that mean she was already pregnant during us open?"
There were also a few who were not convinced that Serena is pregnant again. "Stop playing with my sis... Those are just the effects of her eating chili dogs before hitting the runway," one of them argued.
The Internet went wild with speculation that Serena may be pregnant with her and husband Alexis Ohanian's second child following her retirement announcement. "In the last year, Alexis and I have been trying to have another child," she said when addressing her decision to hang her racket. "We recently got some information from my doctor that put my mind at ease and made me feel that whenever we're ready, we can add to our family."
During the athlete's swansong at the U.S. Open, fans were speculating that the athlete may have already been pregnant. "I think she's retiring because she's pregnant. Just a feeling I'm getting from her," one person claimed. Another chimed in, "That dress is making my girl #SerenaWilliams look pregnant," as another similarly suggested, "Is Serena Williams pregnant? Do I spy a bump under all those sparkles?"
Serena and Alexis welcomed their first child, a daughter named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, in September 2017.
