The tennis great recently posed for the print-only Australian magazine, which released its latest issue over the weekend. Williams wears a gray Berlei bra on the cover and a pink satin trench from Michael Lo Sordo, both of which showcase her gorgeous baby bump:
In her interview with Stellar, Williams opened up about becoming a mother for the first time, and her biggest fears as her due date approaches.
“I don’t think watching birthing videos helps,” Williams confessed to the magazine. “I actually think it makes it worse. Having a baby, nothing is guaranteed.”
She added, “That’s the scariest thing. [But] I think [giving birth] will give me more strength, if that’s possible, and a lot more confidence. I feel like I will be ready for anything.”
Williams and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are expecting their first child together sometime this fall. Williams accidentally confirmed the news in April when she released a Snapchat saying she was 20 weeks pregnant.
Ohanian posted an Instagram with Williams from the shower and captioned it, “Preparing for our greatest adventure yet.”
This is going to be one lucky (and truly exceptional) baby.
