Serena Williams And Alex Ohanian Are Reportedly Getting Married This Weekend

Secrecy swirls around Serena Williams New Orleans wedding

Serena Williams and fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are set to marry this week in an intimate ceremony in lovely New Orleans, LA. Meanwhile, selected guests have already attended the rehearsal dinner at New Orleans on Wednesday. While Serena's sister Venus Williams will be one of the biggest stars at the bash, famous singers and television personalities of the likes of Beyoncé, Jay Z and Kris Jenner are expected to grace the occasion.

The insider also revealed that the 36 year old tennis and her 35 year fiancé chose the Contemporary Arts Center: "Because of its incredible architecture and history".

The couple are exchanging vows less than three months after the birth of their first child together, Alexis Ohanian Jr.

Also, Serena and Ohanian have shown interest to have their newborn at the ceremony on Thursday.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion celebrated her bachelorette party earlier this month at the Baccarat Hotel and Residences in NY. (Markle and Queen Bey didn't appear to be present at the time.) The girls weekend included a stay at The Baccarat Hotel and Residences, People reports, nights out dancing and treatments at the hotel's La Mer-branded spa. Rumblings of a wedding location started in October, when reports surfaced that the two had taken a brief trip to New Orleans to scope out potential venues (with their Yorkshire Terrier, Chip, in tow).

Williams announced the news of their engagement with a poem on her soon-to-be husband's platform, Reddit.

Recently, Serena made her first red carpet appearance after baby Alexis' birth at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards wearing Versace.
