Prior to the norm, where celebrities throw lavish parties for their kids, Serena in an interview with Daily Mail stated that her daughter, “Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays,” Williams said in a recent press conference. “We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, we don’t do that.
An Interview also with JW, expressed. “Jehovah’s Witnesses do not celebrate birthdays because we believe that such celebrations displease God. Although the Bible does not explicitly forbid celebrating birthdays, it does help us to reason on key features of these events and understand God’s view of them,” it says.
The 36-year-old also dished that her husband, Alexis Ohanian, didn’t grow up in any sort of church but he has been very receptive to Serena and her beliefs, letting her take the lead and put her needs first. And it should not come as a shock to fans that Williams is sticking to her roots and beliefs as she always has throughout her tennis career.
