Tennis great Serena Williams is featured in her birthday suit and pregnant on the July 2017 cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

Williams sat down to speak with Vanity Fair about a number of stories in her life, including her relationship with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, her current experiences with pregnancy, and how she plans to balance motherhood with her tennis career.

The couple first met at a hotel in Rome, Italy, when Ohanian sat at a table nearby Williams at breakfast, which displeased the 35-year-old athlete. She joked with him that there was a rat in an effort to get him to move. “I’m from Brooklyn. I see rats all the time,” Ohanian responded. That’s when Williams asked him to join her party, and the rest is history.

As for how he proposed, Ohanian planned a spontaneous trip to Italy to pop the question, and again Serena wasn’t thrilled with the idea. “I knew it was coming,” she recalls. “I was like, ‘Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want.'” Ohanian proposed at the same table where they had first met at that hotel in Rome.

Now the two are expecting their first child and Williams admits that “it just doesn’t seem real.”

“I don’t know why. Am I having a baby?” she confides. “If you would have told me last year in October or November that I would have a baby, not be pregnant but have a baby, I would have thought you were the biggest liar in the world. This is kind of how I am right now. This is happening sooner than later, and it’s going by so fast.”

She adds, “I don’t know what to do with a baby. I have nothing. . . . I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room.”
