Of course, the event will be star-studded. The list of guests includes power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z as well as Kris Jenner. Attendees will be arriving in New Orleans as early as Wednesday, a source told People. 

The powerful pair, who have been together since 2015,  announced their engagement in December 2016. Reports of their trip to New Orleans last month to find possible wedding venues set off wedding rumors.

Williams and Ohanian welcomed their first childAlexis Ohanian Jr. on September 1. Williams showed off her curvy post-baby body at the Glamour Women of the Year awards in New York City on Monday. She rocked a short Versace dress at the high-profile event.

Though the tennis pro is busy inspiring others to set relationship goals and being a new mom, she has been an activist for women and African Americans. She spoke up for equal pay for Black women and against systematic racism in an article for Fortune in August. She also advocated for workplace diversity in Silicon Valley when she accepted a position with an online polling company in May.

I feel like diversity is something I speak to,” Williams said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Change is always happening; change is always building. What is important to me is to be at the forefront of the change and to make it easier for the next person that comes behind me.”

Williams is showing the world that she knows how to maintain balance in her life like a pro.
