- 6 weeks into motherhood, tennis champ Serena Williams takes to Instagram to ask her fans about the best push present
- The infant was named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr
She gave us baby bump goals when she posed on the August cover of Vanity Fair wearing nothing but fierceness and a waist chain.
And now she is making our hearts melt with a photo of her newborn baby girl, Olympia, whom she welcomed to the world six weeks ago with fiancé Alexis Ohanian, who is the Reddit co-founder.
Born Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the six-week-old was the star of the photo posted by her mother on Instagram, who put flower crown filters around their heads.
“Ladies is a ‘push present’ a thing? If so what did you get if anything?” was the question Williams posed as the caption for the photo.
A push present is a present a partner gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child.
Baby girl Oympia arrived on September 1.
The 36-year-old spent a total of six days in hospital between going into labor and being discharged with her baby.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner checked into hospital on a Wednesday, with an entire floor of the location being cleared in order to ensure the mother-to-be had the maximum amount of privacy possible.
It is reported that she gave birth later on Friday, after her doctors made the decision to induce her the previous night.
The couple chose to keep the gender of their unborn child a secret until its birth.
However, Serena revealed that before they found out the gender of their baby, Alexis, whom the baby is named after, was convinced that it would be a boy but she knew it was a girl.
“I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough.”
The athlete played and won her 23rd title at the Australian Open and then temporarily retired from competitive tennis in order to focus on her pregnancy and becoming a mother.
It recently came to light that Williams is hoping to return to the Grand Slam circuit as early as January of next year.
