Serena Williams shares photo of newborn daughter Alexis Olympia
Serena Williams surfaced on social media Wednesday morning to share a photograph of newborn daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
The photo is an intimate image of the tennis icon holding the infant, who was born on Sept. 1. Williams reports that Alexis Olympia weighed in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces.
“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey,” Williams wrote in the post. “Also check out my IG stories.”
Williams also shared a video documenting her pregnancy and her daughter’s birth via her official website. The video was posted on the YouTube account of Alexis Ohanian, Williams’ fiancé. The engagement was announced last December.
Williams last played at the Australian Open in January when she was already pregnant. She won the tournament, inspiring her to joke “Grand Slam Titles: 1,” in a post about her daughter. Williams says she intends to return to action at the same tournament next year.
