Serena Names Daughter After Fiancé

Serena Williams welcomed her first child with her Fiancé Alexis Ohanian earlier this month, with the news breaking just last week.

The tennis pro has been laying low since the birth with fans getting their snippets of information from the public congratulatory messages from A-list friend Beyoncé and her sister Venus.

Serena shared the first photograph of her newborn daughter and revealed her name.

The Insta-story began with clips from various stages of Williams’ pregnancy and ended with an intimate snap of her and her newborn who was wearing some adorable knitted shoes at the hospital.

Serena and her Fiancé Alexis Ohanian, 34, also took the opportunity to announce their daughter’s full name – Alexis Olympia Ohanian Junior (presumably as a tribute to her Reddit co-founder father).

The new parents also decided to include a joke, referring to the fact Serena was already pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January (even though they had not yet publicly announced the pregnancy).












The Instagram story seems to have been far more planned than the Snapchat story that accidentally revealed Williams was 20-weeks pregnant back in April. Serena sent fans into meltdown after uploading the photo, which she had intended to keep private.

‘Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.’, Serena posted alongside a photo of her cradling her baby girl, telling fans to check out the link in her bio to hear about ‘her amazing journey’.

The couple have uploaded a sweet video to her site entitled Hello, World, with the montage of clips taking us through the whole pregnancy from the first sonogram and baby kick to Serena presenting her baby at the end.

‘So we’re leaving the hospital, it’s been a long time,’ Serena explained at the end of the video. ‘We had a lot of complications but look who we got – we got a baby girl.’

The video ends with a profile for Baby Alexis, revealing her birthday: September 1, 2017, her weight: 6lb 14oz and crediting her with the Australian Open win when she was in Serena’s tummy earlier this year, with the final line reading, ‘Grand slam titles: 1.’

Alexis Olympia Ohanian Junior was born at St Mary’s Medical Centre in West Palm Beach.
