Meanwhile, tennis legend Serena Williams continued her routine day despite being pregnant.
NFL icon Tom Brady also joined in the festivities, wishing his mom a happy birthday on his Instagram story while sending his 13.9 million followers a happy Fourth of July.

She even treated her fans to a video of herself enjoying a hot dog and beer in the same outfit.
Although the hot dog eating contest at Coney Island was delayed due to dark clouds rolling in, it eventually kicked off at 2pm ET. Over 30,000 people gathered at Coney Island to celebrate July 4, making it one of the premier events in America. The contest, organized by Major League Eating (MLE) since 1997, has been a tradition for more than five decades.
While some Americans faced the threat of severe thunderstorms dampening their Fourth of July celebrations, Macy’s confirmed that its iconic fireworks display would go ahead as planned. With 60,000 rockets launched on the East River in NYC, the show promised to be nothing short of showstopping. However, lightning and rain forced some communities, including those in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, to postpone or cancel their Independence Day festivities.
In the world of sports, the New York Yankees’ Fourth of July game was delayed by rain but eventually took place later in the day. They emerged victorious, defeating the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 in the Bronx.
Amidst all the celebrations, Serena Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam winner, shared clips of herself working out in a gym. The 41-year-old tennis superstar announced her second pregnancy on the Met Gala red carpet in May. And let’s not forget TikTok stars, the Cavinder twins, who enjoyed the sun in their bikinis and shared snapshots of their Independence Day adventures on jet skis.
It’s heartwarming to see sports stars embracing the Fourth of July spirit with style and fun. Their posts on social media have undoubtedly brought smiles to their fans’ faces, reminding us all to celebrate and enjoy life’s special moments.
