Tennis superstar Serena Williams is enjoying some much needed rest and relaxation with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian following the announcement of the couple’s celebrity baby news on April 19th. According to EOnline.com, the celebrity couple was spotted basking in the sun, surf and sand at Playa del Carmen, a Mexican resort town, where Williams sported a cute swimsuit and a smile and her soon-to-be-hubby grinned and sipped on a beer. With this Hollywood relationship in for a major change with a baby on the way, it’s no wonder this power couple is taking a moment to just enjoy the warm weather and each other’s company as they celebrate their celebrity pregnancy and segue into a brand new chapter in their lives.

Serena is preparing for her celebrity baby with some relaxation! What are some benefits to indulging in a babymoon?

Cupid’s Advice:

With a baby on the way, traveling can seem like a daunting proposition. But there are tons of benefits to turning a romantic getaway into a special babymoon to celebrate your upcoming family addition. Here are Cupid’s top tips on why you should prioritize a trip the next time you and your partner get such happy news:

1. It’s your last chance to travel kid-free: While traveling while pregnant can be a mild ordeal, traveling with a baby or small child is exponentially more difficult! Considering that this may be the last opportunity you and your partner may have for a trip that’s all about you, it might be a good idea to take the plunge and enjoy one last luxury vacation – minus the pitter patter of little feet.

2. It’s a great way to bond: Even if you’re both super excited to be parents, it’s likely that if you don’t get away to celebrate, “real life” may distract you from your happy news. Get away from the pressure of work and other time commitments for a bit, even if just for a weekend, and really focus on the dreams, plans and hopes you have for this new special individual you’re bringing into the world. One-on-one time will give you tons of opportunities to talk about your future favorite kiddo, and even make a great plan for your first few months as parents too.

3. Relaxation is vital: Pregnancy is a wonderful miracle of life, but it also comes with its fair share of aches, pains and uncomfortable moments. Taking a trip to a spa, a beach, or other luxury travel destination with your partner and just letting yourself really relax will do nothing but benefit you and your baby’s health and help you center and collect yourself for the harder parts of bringing life into this world!
