Serena Williams and her squad celebrated the tennis star’s upcoming childbirth by having a ’50s-themed baby shower that included poodle skirts and throwback hairstyles.


Williams’ guests included Ciara, Eva Longoria, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony and Beyoncé’s cousin and songwriter, Angie Beyince.

“When you and your crew go so far back to the 50’s. Even they had your back,” Williams wrote on Instagram, along with other Instagrams posted by Ciara.


In April, Williams announced that she and her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, are expecting their first child. Although Williams said the announcement was an accident that happened when she posted a photo on Snapchat, she eventually confirmed that she was, in fact, pregnant.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

Thotline Bling: black girl supremacy

This is such a cool theme. I’m glad Serena got to celebrate with her girls. I love friendships between black women in general, but especially in the public spotlight. It’s just heartwarming to see them support each other. And this party looks so fun.

SIDENOTE: I love Kelly Rowland, but she could never be in my pictures. Why is she always shining and looking stunning like that?! Lol.

Kelly is beautiful! I really love the ‘50s/pin-up look on her. I remember she did an entire shoot/video in that theme and killed every look.
