On Wednesday morning, Serena Williams shared several photos and videos of her newborn daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., on social media. Williams gave birth to Alexis, Jr.—who’s named after her father, Williams’ fiancé and Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian—12 days ago.
Williams teased the social media reveal on Tuesday night, posting an Instagram of herself and Ohanian with the caption, “But are you ready?” Fortunately for us, Williams and Ohanian didn’t wait too long before sharing a much-awaited close-up photo of their newborn daughter. “Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr.,” Williams wrote in the caption on her Instagram post. Ohanian posted an illustration on social media, writing, “Our little girl is already mama’s perfect sidekick.”
The new parents also directed their followers to check out a YouTube video documenting their newborn daughter’s “amazing journey.” The video, which is entitled “Hello, world,” is a compilation of clips captured on Snapchat from the very beginning of Williams’ pregnancy to the day the baby Alexis Jr. came home for the first time.
At the end of the video, Williams, 35, holds her newborn daughter close to her chest and says, “So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days. It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications. But look who we got! We got a baby girl.” The clip then fades into a title card revealing Alexis Jr.’s name, birth date, and weight (6 lb., 14 oz.), as well as the number of Grand Slam titles she’s won: one, because it totally counts if you were in the womb when your mom won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title.
