Serena Williams is ready to pop. Good thing she has friends around to help celebrate her big day.
The way-pregnant tennis star toasted (with nonalcoholic beverages, of course) her impending motherhood over the weekend with a few of her closest and most famous friends. Think Eva Longoria, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and, of course, her older sister, Venus. The UK’s Sun reports that another famous pal, “Suits” star Meghan Markle, was invited but opted to go to Botswana with Prince Harry to celebrate her 36th birthday, which was last Friday.

Serena had her shower at famed retro diner, Nick’s in Palm Beach.
All guests wore ’50s-themed clothing like they were at a sock hop or in an episode of “Happy Days.” The hashtag: #ShakeRattleRoll2017.
Williams posted that she was 22 weeks’ pregnant back in April, so the baby, sex unknown, is due late August, early September.
Longoria has been enjoying Miami while in town. Last week she had a late dinner at Bazaar by José Andrés at SLS South Beach.
The actress-producer was with a friend and enjoyed the Spanish restaurant’s signature items such as the Iberico de Bellota, a bone-in pork chop served with toasted tomato bread, mojo verde and anchovy chimichurri, and Bao con Lechón, a Chinese steam bun stuffed with pork belly. Her adult beverage: Almaviva cabernet, which goes for $300 a bottle.
On Monday, she posed with a cute puppy on the beach. Oh the life.
