In an interview with Vogue, the 35-year-old, who is engaged to Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, predicted she would give birth to a girl.

“Alexis thinks we’re having a boy, but I have a strong suspicion that it’s a girl,” she said.

“Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”
