Serena Williams Sets the Record Straight on the Gender of Her Baby

Freudian slip, or no big deal? People are starting to speculate that Venus Williams accidentally revealed the sex of Serena Williams's baby. And it kind of makes you wonder whether or not "oops moments" -- as well as tennis skills -- run in the fam. (In case you forgot, the mom-to-be unintentionally announced her pregnancy on Snapchat.) But this time, it might be no big deal. 

The gaffe in question occurred during an interview after Venus's recent second-round French Open win. (Serena attended the event to cheer on her older sis.) When asked about what she wants Serena's baby to call her, Venus gave what she likely thought to be a seemingly harmless answer that sparked a lot of rumors:

"She's going to call me 'favorite aunt.'"

Sooo, Serena and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are having a girl?! Maybe ... or maybe not.

Serena Williams took to Twitter June 1 to shut down rumors Venus revealed her baby's sex. In fact, Mom-to-be reveals in her post that she and Ohanian are waiting to find out whether their bundle of joy will be a boy or a girl.

"I think the surprise of knowing what you are going to have on that very special day you give birth is prob the best surprise you can ever have!" Williams wrote. "So to clarify what Venus said, I am always joking with my sisters to see what favors I can get them [to] do for me next. If I want something from one of my sisters, I say baby Venus, baby Lyn, or baby Isha needs it."

There you have it, folks! Serena is simply trying to bribe one of her sisters to do something for her -- which certainly is not unheard of when you're expecting. 

"I did not grow up with any brothers, only sisters and we all say 'she' more than 'he.'"

Regardless of whether or not Serena welcomes a boy or girl into the world, we hope baby is happy and healthy -- because, at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.
