Serena Williams and Alexis are ready to make things official, the couple will be getting married this Thursday with Jay Z, Beyonce and Meghan Markle among guests to attend. The wedding will take place in New Orleans, but the wedding is allegedly top secret…
According to DM:
The wedding is being held amid such secrecy that the guests have been informed only of the city where it will be held but not yet the venue.
However an insider tells me the couple, who met in 2015, will tie the knot in front of some of America’s biggest names at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, including Beyonce, Jay Z and Kris Jenner.
Guests will not learn the details until Thursday morning.
Among the guests could be Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle. The American actress, who finishes shooting legal drama Suits this week for the final time, has been a friend of Serena’s since 2014 and gushed earlier this year: ‘We are both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces, and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations – our endless ambition.’
The star-studded wedding guest list includes Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria and the pop singers Kelly Rowland and Ciara. Guests will be banned from taking mobile telephones or other electronic devices to the ceremony because Serena has signed an exclusive deal with her British friend Dame Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, for the glossy magazine to run photographs.
The couple are said to be bringing a nanny along to the wedding to take care of their baby.
‘Alexis will have a babysitter on hand just for her the entire night,’ the source says. ‘Both parents wouldn’t dream of not having her there. She will be a part of the wedding as much as possible for an 11-week-old. They are totally and utterly besotted with her.’
