Covered in very on-theme pearls and tulle courtesy of Gucci, Williams confirmed the news on Instagram with the caption, “Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us to the Met Gala.” This is the couple’s second child, and we’re sure Instagram star and budding tennis legend Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. is excited about her upcoming tennis partner. With an expecting Rihanna thought to be on the way, it looks like at least some kids were technically allowed at the Met Gala.
