(PARIS) — Venus Williams appears to have accidentally announced her pregnant sister Serena is expecting a girl.
After her second-round win at the French Open, Venus was asked what she wanted the baby to call her.
She said: “She’s going to call me ‘favorite aunt’.”
Serena, who is about six months pregnant, was at Roland Garros on Wednesday, watching her older sister beat Kurumi Nara of Japan in straight sets.
Update, June 1: Serena Williams wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday:
“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. So To clarify what Venus said, I am always joking with my sisters to see what favors I can get them do do for me next. If I want something from one of my sisters I say baby Venus baby Lyn, or Baby Isha needs it. I did not grow up with any brothers, only sisters and we all say “she” more than “he”. Unless I’m joking with my Dad or Alexis and I’m trying to con something out of them too. Hey O’m the youngest if 5 I’ve always tricked all of them what can I say.”
