Big news ahead! Daily Mail is reporting that tennis superstar Serena Williams and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, are getting married on Thursday (Nov. 16) in New Orleans. 

The news outlet reads: "For I can reveal that the 36-year-old champion is to marry Alexis Ohanian, 34, multi-millionaire co-founder of social news website Reddit, on Thursday— just 11 weeks after giving birth to their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr."

Daily Mail continues: "The wedding is being held amid such secrecy that the guests have been informed only of the city where it will be held but not yet the venue."

An insider told the publication that some A-list stars will be guests at the ceremony, which cost about $1 million to bring to life. They include Beyoncé, JAY-Z and Kris Jenner. The source added about the upcoming nuptials: "Serena and Alexis have spared no expense on their dream wedding... They have hired the best of the best and can't wait to get married in The Big Easy. It's a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved."

Cell phones and other electronic devices will also apparently be banned from the ceremony because Williams has already signed "an exclusive deal with her British friend Dame Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, for the glossy magazine to run photographs," Daily Mail states.
