Serena Williams celebrates baby with ‘50s-themed shower

Oh, baby!

Tennis superstar Serena Williams traded her tennis skirt for a poodle skirt Saturday to celebrate the upcoming birth of her first child at a star-studded, ’50s-themed baby shower in Florida.

The 35-year-old leader in Grand Slam titles opted for a “Shake, Rattle and Roll” theme for the fete, and got pals like Ciara, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, Eva Longoria and sister Venus in on the fun.

“That’s 1 Fly Mamma 2 Be In The Middle!” Ciara wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of Williams and friends in skirts and bandanas.

Anthony, meanwhile, shared a sweet photo of her posing with Ciara and Rowland, and captioned it, “FOREVER TYPE THING.”

Williams’ fiancé Alexis Ohanian even joined in, donning a full-on greaser get-up, leather jacket and all.

Williams and the Reddit co-founder, 34, were engaged in Rome last December. The pair announced they were expecting in April.

The happy couple revealed last week that they’re waiting to find out the sex of their baby, but admitted they won’t be all that surprised if their bundle of joy is a girl.

“We have our hunches,” Ohanian told Jimmy Kimmel. “She put it really well, actually. Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a little girl, because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on.”
