Serena Williams gets candid as she tries to slip into denim Valentino skirt as a ‘goal’ five months after giving birth… but is unable to get it over famous derriere: ‘Houston, we got a problem’

Serena Williams has a goal in sight in her effort to lose all of that baby weight, which comes five moths after she and husband Alex Ohanian welcomed their second daughter to the family.

‘I got this cool Valentino skirt when I was pregnant and I was like, ‘I’m gonna be able to fit this when I don’t have a belly,’ the tennis legend, 42, revealed, while standing in front of a mirror in her bathroom.

‘I can’t fit it,’ she confessed before making an effort of two to pull the skirt on.

While starting to sound discouraged, Williams began to try and slip both legs into the prized garment: ‘But this is my goal. Honestly, I should’ve been able to fit it by now, but I ran into some, um… I got distracted for about a month.’

The seven-time Wimbledon champion admitted she about a month behind in reaching her goal, just as she turned to her side in front of mirror that showed her derriere sticking out over the waistline.

‘We got a ways to go,’ she confessed with a sense of humor, ‘Houston we have a problem.’

Knowing she has the ability to focus and hit the gym hard to get back into top shape, the Michigan native, who grew up in Southern California, set a new goal.

‘Okay, I feel like if I go to the gym and get fit I will be able to in it,’ she said with some hesitancy, which she showed by making a funny, not so confident look on her face.

The clip ended with a shot of the denim skirt sitting on top of a dresser with a message to her 17.1 million Instagram fans and followers: ‘back to the drawer…. for now!’

In another example of her sense of humor, Williams captioned the video ‘The Diary of a Denim skirt (part 1) #valentino.’

Williams and Alexis Ohanian fell head over heels for one another in 2015 when they met by chance while staying at the same hotel in Rome, Italy.

They began dating soon after and were going strong for more than year when Ohanian pulled out the romance card and proposed to the tennis legend in December 2016 at the very same hotel and table where they first met.

That came about two months after the birth of their first daughter, Olympia, now six.

The couple ended up welcoming their second daughter, a baby girl named Adira, this past August.

Basically, that breaks down to five months since Williams gave birth to their second child.

Ohanian is an internet entrepreneur and investor best known as the co-founder and former executive chairman of the social media site Reddit along with Steve Huffman and Aaron Swartz.

Williams got animated when she realized the skirt wasn't going to fit just yet: 'We got a ways to go,' she confessed with a sense of humor, 'Houston we have a problem'

The Michigan native said she's going to use the skirt as a motivation to finish getting back into shape, which comes only five moths after she gave birth to daughter Adira

Williams and husband Alex Ohania, 40, have been married since 2016, and are the proud parents of daughters Olympia, six, and Adira, five months

He also co-founded the early-stage venture capital firm Initialized Capital, helped launch the travel search website Hipmunk, and started the social enterprise Breadpig.

As for Williams, she is widely regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time after having a career where she was ranked number one in the world by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) for 319 weeks, and finishing as the year-end number one five times.

She retired in September 2022 with 23 Grand Slam women single’s titles, which is the most in the Open Era, and the second-most of all time.

Serena Williams also has the distinction of being the highest-earning woman athlete of all time.
