Williams has been impressing us in every way for many years. And now that she is pregnant, we’re sure this woman is set to slay again. Seriously, Williams has won seven matches in the Australian Open while eight weeks pregnant…yeh…but more on that later.
Williams was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair. Shot by famed photographer, Annie Leibovitz, Williams showed off her growing bump in photos that leave little to the imagination. The rich oranges and dark tones of the photos made for one strikingly beautiful shoot.
The cover is especially daring. Williams is wearing nothing except skin colored panties and a thin body chain. The only thing that could cover up her body is her long wavy hair but that isn’t doing much in this photo.
Williams is having a baby with Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian. The two met in 2015 at a hotel in Rome. They had a whirlwind courtship, flying from Paris to everywhere else in the world where Williams was playing.
In December 2016, the two announced their engagement. The next month, Williams found out that she was eight weeks pregnant. After that, she went on to win all of the seven matches of the Australian Open.
AND... No one even knew that she was pregnant! This woman proved her badass status once again by slaying the court with a baby in her belly. Some women — OK me — can’t even get off the couch when pregnant after a walk around the block.
The photos are visually stunning. Leibovitz never fails to shoot strikingly beauty photo stories and this shoot is nothing less than amazing. But with every photoshoot of this kind, people are going to have their say and shame the woman who chose to pose naked while pregnant.
One Facebook user wrote: "Serena, this is so shameful and highly unnecessary. We can clearly see that you are pregnant...why go naked? For what? For who? What's your message? I honestly don't get it! I'm your fan...but this display is simply TRASHY!.. why???"
12. ‘This Is Disgusting’
Others raised concern for the unborn child. One user wrote: "This is disgusting, moral behavior is paramount, the child can't say nothing to no one hence the mum expose herself naked while she is unborn."
Other users expressed their annoyance with celebrities who choose to pose naked when they get pregnant. One Facebook user wrote, "Please stop publicizing these nude pregnancy photos. The photos are extremely personal, so shouldn't they be shared with your closest family members, and not with a bunch of strangers?"
Most people, however, loved the whole photoshoot and were happy for Williams and her fiancé. One Facebook user wrote: "So many opinions, she's beautiful. I'm so over all these never having sinned, got something negative to say keyboard warriors. Trust she don't give a shit about anyone's negative opinion."
Considering William’s success story, as well as, her intense focus on being the best, her discipline, her skill and her talent, I’m going to say she doesn’t give a shit about what people think of the shoot either. Williams’ shoot is stunning but hey, that’s just me. What do you think?
