Serena Williams Chooses Not To Celebrate Alexis Olympia’s First Birthday
However, don’t expect balloons, smash-cake, or any hired Disney characters to mark the occasion.
According to Serena, her little one isn’t doing any celebrating for the big O-N-E, because she has religious reasons that hold her back from all the extra.
As she told the crowd during a press conference, via E!online:
“Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays. We’re Jehova’s Witnesses so we don’t do that.”
And apparently Daddy is on board with no celebration as well, as she’s gone on record with Vogue saying that he didn’t grow up particularly religious and thus is very receptive to Serena’s recent dedication to her faith.
Well, happy early birthday anyway, little one!
