And the guest list is something to behold…

Serena Williams and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are reportedly getting married this Thursday (local time) in New Orleans.

And despite reports of an "intimate" affair, the rumoured guest list almost certainly ensures a certain amount of hoopla.

According to People, we can expect to see attendees such as Kris Jenner, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Meghan Markle (here's hoping she brings boyfriend Prince Harry, too).

Page Six's sources add to that list Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Eva Longoria.

The wedding will reportedly be held at the Contemporary Arts Center, a venue which boasts a mixture of turn-of-the century warehouse spaces, galleries, theatres and an atrium.

The couple will say "I do" less than three months after the birth of their first child together, Alexis Ohanian Jr.

Serena, 36, and Alexis, 34, introduced their beautiful new baby girl to the world almost two weeks after her birth.

In an Instagram post and accompanying video, the first-time parents shared that there were a "lot of complications." And while they didn't provide any further details, it was close to a week before they were able to take home their new bub -- who weighed just 6 lbs and 13 ounces when she was born on Friday, Sept. 1.

"So we're leaving the hospital after six, seven days," the proud new mum says in the sweet clip debuting her daughter.

"It's been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl!"

The video, which goes far beyond providing a first glimpse at the darling newborn, cuts together home video and social-media posts from the tennis great's entire pregnancy -- including the very first ultrasound, never-before-seen bump shots and intimate footage of the parents-to-be.

As previously reported, the tennis great accidentally revealed her pregnancy by uploading a photo of herself to Snapchat with the caption "20 weeks."

Her representatives were forced to confirm the exciting news just hours after the tennis star posted (and quickly deleted) an image of her growing baby bump.

"Well, actually it was an accident," she told Gayle King at Tuesday's 2017 Ted Talks conference. "I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm going."

She added: "I didn't tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I'd been saving it. On social media, you press the wrong button and… Thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I'm like, 'That's weird.' But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to share]."

We can't wait to hear more from this beautiful family!
