Serena Williams sported pearls, a poodle skirt and a black top as she partied with her friends and sister Venus Williams in a 1950s-themed baby shower. In the party titled ‘Baby O Diner’, Venus was wearing a polka-dot dress.

The 35-year-old tennis superstar, who has won the Wimbledon seven times, was joined by Kelly Rowland, Ciara, and actress Eva Longoria in her house at Florida.

Serena, who is eight-months pregnant, is expecting her first baby with Reddit co-founder Alex Ohanian.

Serena uploaded pictures from the party on Instagram and wrote, “When you and your crew go so far back to the 50’s. Even then they had your back. @evalongoria @ciara @lala @kellyrowland @angiebeyince #shakerattleandroll2017 #babyO.”

Ohainan too made an Instagram post, and wrote, “Preparing for our greatest adventure yet.”

Serena also has had a photo shoot with the Stellar magazine, showing her baby bump in a pink silk coat.

She also spoke a bit about how she would want to bring up her child. “There are barriers I hope to break so my baby, whether boy or girl, won’t have to live under those stipulations. I definitely am a feminist. I like to stick up for women and women’s rights. So many things happen and I just think ‘Wow, why don’t we have a chance?’ If that makes me a feminist, I am proud to be one,” Serena was quoted as saying by The Sun.
