PHOTO: Serena Williams Shares First Picture of Daughter, Alexis


On Wednesday, September 13, tennis star and new mom Serena Williams took to her Instagram account to share the first photo of her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

Williams and her husband-to-be, Reddit co-founded, Alexis Ohanian, decided to name their daughter after him. The couple will likely be calling their daughter “Olympia,” as they’ve already set up an Instagram account for her using that name.

Williams and Ohanian welcomed their first child together on August 30 in Florida.

Below is a video of the couple’s baby journey. In the video, Williams talks about complications and says that she had to stay in the hospital with her daughter for six days, but doesn’t give any additional details as to why.
