Inside Serena Williams’ blast from the past ’50s-themed baby shower


Serena Williams takes guests on the blast from the past, with ’50s-inspired baby shower.

On Saturday, the 23-time Grand Slam champion gathered with her A-list posse, Ciara, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, and Eva Longoria, to celebrate the upcoming birth of her first child. Sister Venus Williams was also in attendance.

“O’ Baby!! Love You Rena. Truly an Exciting Time! #Memories. #ShakeRattleRoll2017,” Ciara shared, taking to Instagram.

The shower, held at an old-school diner, featured a cherry red truck and lots and lots of retro gear, like Ci Ci’s circle skirt featuring a poodle or Rowland’s symmetrical polka-dot top and tulle skirt, perfectly accessorized with a floral scarf wrapped around her tresses.

In April, the 35-year-old accidentally revealed she’s expecting via Snapchat, when she showcased her baby bump in a yellow one-piece swimsuit, with the caption “20 weeks.” She and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are due to give birth this fall.
