Serena Williams‘s baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian will clock 1 on 1st September 2018 but according to the mummy, there wouldn’t be any celebration because of their religious beliefs as Jehova’s Witnesses.
She made this known while speaking at a press conference at the US Open.
A reporter asked Serena: “Is there a birthday party planned?”
To which she replied, “Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays. We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that.”
Alexis Ohanian, however, did not grow up in a religious household, it is believed that he is now practicing the belief with his wife Serena.
Speaking to Vogue last year, Serena said:
‘Being a Jehovah’s Witness is important to me, but I’ve never really practiced it and have been wanting to get into it. ‘Alexis didn’t grow up going to any church, but he’s really receptive and even takes the lead. He puts my needs first.’ Jehovah’s Witnesses believe God is the Creator and Supreme Being and reject the Trinity doctrine. They do not celebrate religious holidays like Christmas and Easter and do not observe birthdays or national holidays, feeling that many of these customs have pagan origins and do not celebrate God.
