Serena Williams introduces daughter on social media

0 Comments

Serena Williams revealed her baby girl’s name on Wednesday, using an Instagram story to take her fans through her pregnancy.

Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. was born Sept. 1. Williams is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

“So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days,” Williams said in one of the Instagram clips. “It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl.”

The girl already has an Instagram — @OlympiaOhanian — tagged by her dad in a post.

In Olympic history, one Olympian went by the name “Olympia,” according to Olympic historians. That’s Australian rower Olympia Aldersey, who placed seventh in Rio in the eight event. Just something to remember for, say, 25 years down the road.

Williams, 35, has said that she hopes to return from pregnancy to defend her Australian Open title in January. She is one victory away from tying Margaret Court‘s record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles.

Williams’ Instagram story began with a sonogram image revealing her pregnancy.

It also included a clip of her carrying the Australian Open trophy, won in January, with the caption, “No one knows I’m 8 weeks pregnant.”
