Tennis Star Serena Williams Poses Nude For Vanity Fair Cover
It’s said that the best way a celebrity can document her first baby bump is on a top magazine cover. That in mind, Serena Williams poses nude for Vanity Fair Cover and it was shot by Annie Leibovitz. Yes, Serena who is seven months into her pregnancy, graces the front of this year’s August issue in nude underwear, a body chain and little else as the silhouette of her growing belly takes center stage.
Serena Williams, 35, and fiancé Alexis Ohanian became engaged in December 2016 in Rome at a table where the two first met. Unlike her surprise pregnancy, Williams suspected her beau was about to ask her a very important question when he insisted she get on a plane to Italy. She recalled:
“I knew it was coming. I was like, ‘Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want.”
However taking a pregnancy test a month later, proved a little more tasking. As she told the story to the magazine, friend Jessica Steindorff had an inkling and urged her to take a pregnancy test. Anyway, after a few days, she decided to.
“I’ll take it just because (a) to prove you wrong and (b) because it’s fun, whatever,” she said. “It’s like a joke. Why not?”
Serena Williams was so unconvinced she was expecting that she forgot to check her pregnancy test. She had taken one while getting ready for an event.
“An hour and a half later, I went back to the bathroom and I totally forgot about it because it was impossible for me….So I went back to get dressed and I went back in the bathroom and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, that test,'” she recalled. Once she saw the result, Serena “did a double take and my heart dropped. Like literally it dropped.”
