Serena Williams is taking on a new title: Mother.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion traveled back in time to celebrate the next chapter in her life with a 1950s themed baby shower. Held at Nick’s 50’s Diner in West Palm Beach, Florida, friends and family turned up in full force to support the expectant mother to be, including La La Anthony, Ciara, Eva Longoria and her sister Venus.
Serena and her famous friends went all out wearing various shades of poodle skirts and polka-dotted tops. With a group of this many famous people in one room, there were bound to be a lot of Instagram posts.
Feast your eyes on the baby shower of the *century.*
Andy Murray may have lost Wednesday at Wimbledon in the quarterfinals to Sam Querrey, but he definitely won the post-match press conference.
When a reporter started phrasing a question to Murray by claiming that Querrey was “the first U.S. player to reach a major semifinal since 2009,” Murray quickly interrupted with “male player.”
Several American women’s tennis players have reached the semifinals of major tournaments in recent years, most notably Serena Williams, who has won 12 major titles since 2009. Serena’s sister, Venus, will play in the semifinal at Wimbledon on Thursday, in addition to making it to the final at the Australian Open earlier this year. Coco Vandeweghe and Madison Keys have also made semis in the last three years.
Murray’s interruption drew widespread praise on social media, including from his mother.
The reporter was quick to correct himself and let out a chuckle. But Murray, for his part, remained unamused.
P.K. Subban is apparently a very big fan of Serena Williams, and the fact that she isn’t at Wimbledon this year didn’t stop him from showing his appreciation for the tennis great.
The Nashville Predators defenseman tweeted this photo on Tuesday of himself hugging a giant poster of Williams with a giant grin on his face.
Subban’s love for Williams has been documented. In 2013, they promoted the Rogers Cup together and he admitted he had a “giant crush” on her.
Unfortunately, Williams is not at Wimbledon this year because she is pregnant. But it’s good to know that Subban is still having a blast.
