Serena Williams to get married this week in New Orleans

Serena Williams Baby Girl Alexis Olympia's Cutest

It's believed Serena and Reddit co-founder Alexis decided on the wedding date because they wanted to marry before Serena makes her return to the competitive tennis circuit in January (18) to defend her title at the Australian Open.

A little more than two months after welcoming her first child with fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, the 23-time Grand Slam champion is reportedly ready for another relationship milestone, as she plans to walk down the aisle this week.

Earlier this month, the former world number one celebrated her upcoming marriage with an ultra-swanky girls' weekend alongside her elder sister Venus Williams, close friends LaLa Anthony, Ciara among others in New York City.

Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Kris Jenner are all rumoured to be on the guest-list.

Serena Williams is getting married on Thursday to Alexis Ohanian, and we couldn't be more excited for them.

Let the countdown begin!

The wedding is being held amid such secrecy that the guests have been informed only of the city where it will be held but not yet the venue.

Another source revealed that the wedding may take place at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

Serena and Alexis chose the Contemporary Arts Center because of its incredible architecture and history.

Alexis will have a babysitter on hand just for her the entire night.

Williams and Ohanian announced their engagement in December 2016.

It was also said that Williams has signed an exclusive deal with Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, to run the photos.
