Serena Williams is thought to be expecting a girl
The tennis star seemingly revealed too much during an interview with Eurosport, while her pregnant sibling supported her from the stands inside the Philippe Chatrier court.
The 36-year-old, who comfortably won in her match against Kurumi Nara, referred to the unborn baby as a “she” before going on to suggest female names.
When jokingly asked about the “rumours” Serena, 35, was expecting following her own confirmation last month, Venus did not hold back.
With a huge smile, the athlete commented: “She’s going to call me, favourite aunt,” following her second round triumph.
