Pregnant Serena Williams asks fans for advice on packing hospital bag!


There were lots of suggestions for the star, with one mum telling her: “Some of your favourite snacks. You'll need it.” Another wrote: “2wks before expected date; if you haven't already, start packing baby & momma essentials now ...don't forget netflix lol.” A third fan said: “Outfits for the baby in different sizes! My son was almost 12 pounds and didn't fit in newborn clothes!!”

Pregnant Serena Williams asks fans for advice on packing hospital bag!

One mum gave a surprising tip, writing: “Funny enough the one thing I'm SO glad we packed was a tennis ball. We learned in a birth class that it can relieve pain if your partner rubs it in circles on your lower back and when I was laboring it was the only thing that provided a little relief (until the epidural!!)”

Serena and Alexis are keeping the sex of their baby a surprise, although Serena seems almost certain she is carrying a girl. Alexis recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and said: "We have our hunches. Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant. She remarked that she feels like it has to be a girl because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on."


When you and your crew go so far back to the 50's. Even then they had your back. @evalongoria @ciara @lala @kellyrowland @angiebeyince #shakerattleandroll2017 #babyO

Serena's 50s themed baby shower with friends

Last month, Serena told E! about reports the pair had wed: "It hasn't happened yet, not that I am aware of!" Asked about when the special occasion will take place, Serena replied: "We are just keeping it hush hush between us right now, our closest family, and friends – and that's it.”
