Serena Williams Shares 1st Photo of Daughter

Tennis legend Serena Williams allowed fans another peek into her private life Wednesday, sharing the first photo of her newborn daughter and that her daughter is named after her fiance, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.


“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories,” Williams wrote under the sweet photo showing mom and daughter cuddling.

In the aforementioned Instagram stories (and link in bio), fans got an even deeper look, with the star sharing snippets from her pregnancy and on through little Alexis’ journey from ultrasound to birth.


“We’re leaving the hospital after ... six days. It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications but look who we got! We got a baby girl!” Williams said toward the end of the video, with the final shot showing off little Alexis’ stats, including her birth date, weight and that one grand-slam title she won while still in her mom’s womb.

But you know how it is, a champ is as a champ does, and little Alexis is already starting out strong. The little one has even already secured her very own Instagram page under the name “Olympia Ohanian,” although no posts have been put up yet.

Congrats, again, to Serena and “big” Alexis on their sweet little bundle!
