A few months ago, the world collectively gasped when tennis pro Serena Williams announced that she was expecting.

But no one appreciates how miraculous it is to carry a child than her fiancé, Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian. Her due date is quickly approaching and while the couple has opted to wait to discover the gender of their little bundle of joy, Ohanian is making it known how lucky he is.

“This is our first child,” he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live . “If anything, though, it really just reinforced how just amazing and strong and powerful and awesome women are and how useless we are during this whole thing. I’m like, ‘I can make you a grilled cheese.’ Does this help? We’re worthless.”

Ohanian also dished on why the couple feels they will welcome a baby girl.

“Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant,” Ohanian said. “She remarked that she feels like it has to be a girl because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on.”

We are excited for the lovely couple.
