Serena Williams Drops Gender Of BFF's Baby In Interview And We’re Looking At You Meghan Markle

Mum's the word

The toughest part about being pregnant, or knowing someone who is pregnant, is keeping the baby’s gender a secret.

Nine months suddenly seems like a lifetime when you’re trusted to keep that information to yourself.

No joke, people will try and trip you up. When you’re asked if it’s a boy or a girl, all you can do is be subtle…

So you really have to feel for Serena Williams, who may have gone and blown one of the biggest secrets of 2019.

In a recent interview with E! News, the tennis superstar was asked about advice for new mothers. 

She started off with an absolute gem.

“Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect.”

Then she added:

“My friend is pregnant, and she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this'. I just looked at her like, ‘No, she’s not... No, you’re not. She was like, ‘I need to talk to you about tips,’ because, yes, I had all of those high expectations.”

Did you catch that? 

Assuming that the “friend” is in fact BFF Meghan Markle, the “no she’s not” means the Duchess of Sussex could be giving birth to a girl in a matter of weeks.

Being a mother to 19-month-old, Serena knows ALL about how much there is to juggle when you’re a mum in the spotlight.

So no doubt she’ll be able to offer Meghan even more handy tips once the baby arrives!
