Venus & Serena Williams will soon be welcoming a new stepmother into the family. And the sisters should have a lot in common with their new mom - such as their age.
Jose Lambiet of the PALM BEACH POST’s PAGE 2 LIVE lobs up the news that 67-year-old tennis dad Richard Williams is engaged to 30-year-old Lakeisha Graham. To put it in perspective, Lakeisha is only one year older than prospective stepdaughter Venus & two years older than prospective stepdaughter Serena.
Richard has been looking for love since splitting from the sisters’ mom Oracene in 2002. At first, he seemed excited to show off his soon-to-be bride. When the Page 2 Live cameraman caught the couple shopping, Richard responded, “Here, get the first pictures of me and my new wife.”
However, a follow-up phone call was met with less enthusiasm:
But when asked if the sisters approved of his marrying a woman 37 years younger, Williams hung up.
But whether Venus & Serena like it or not, Richard & Lakeisha plan to get hitched sometime after the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida, which takes place at the end of March.
Unless Whitey tries to keep him down.
