Greatest Athlete in the World Serena Williams happens to be pregnant, and as with many pregnant women, she is currently experiencing The Cravings. (The severity and intensity with which I’ve heard they occur merit the capital letters, of course.) I don’t know much about these, but I have heard that these can involve pickles or ice cream or pickles and ice cream, or other foods and combinations thereof that non-pregnant people might find…interesting.

In the case of Williams, the cravings have apparently gotten real, despite her statements to the contrary earlier in her pregnancy, which apparently, she’s very much been enjoying.

“I have been really fortunate and I have had a really good pregnancy, and everything has just been really good,” Williams told E! in July. “Sometimes I am walking in my house, and I’m like, ‘I really like being pregnant.’ I never thought I would say that. I am definitely [the type] that enjoys it.”

In the same interview, she said she hadn’t been super crave-y:

“I don’t have the cravings,” she said. “So I am a little disappointed with that. But I am OK with it because I feel like, maybe if I had the cravings, I would have a tougher pregnancy.”

But apparently they’re here now, and she sent her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, out into the night to secure the supplies. He Insta’d his little Publix-stravaganza, and it’s pretty great.

“It’s Friday night, I’m at Publix, going shopping ’cause my fiancé has cravings. I was told there would be cravings. I was not told they would be these,” he says in the video.

The purchases? No ice cream here: We’re talking zucchini, asparagus, and artichoke.

Williams said in that July E! interview she’d been eating healthier than normal during her pregnancy. “I have just been trying to eat healthy and stay fit and definitely eating healthier than I normally do. It’s pretty backwards,” she said, adding that she was really into the veggies and greens.
