AceShowbiz - Serena Williams and her fiance Alexis Ohanian finally debuted their baby girl, two weeks after her birth. The tennis champion took it to Instagram to share the first ever picture of the newborn named after her Reddit co-founder father. Little Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. snuggles up on her mother's chest. "Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.," the new mom gushed about her adorable daughter.
Proud baby daddy posted on his own page a cartoon version of the family portrait. He wrote, "Welcome, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., we're so happy to meet you. We made you a video of our adventure together so far." He added on Twitter, "You're a blessing; your mama's perfect sidekick; & already a Grand Slam champ."
The engaged couple made a YouTube video to document the day they found out about the pregnancy up to the moment after baby Alexis arrived and the new parents took her home. "So we're leaving the hospital after six days, it's been a long time," Serena said. "We had a lot of complications but look what we got, we got a baby girl."
Alexis Jr. was born September 1. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces. She won a Grand Slam title because her mom Serena won the Australian Open while she was pregnant with her. "No one knows I'm 8 weeks pregnant," so the athlete revealed in the YouTube video.
Serena Williams, 35, and Alexis Ohanian, 34, started dating in 2015. He proposed to her in a romantic getaway in Rome in late 2016 during the holiday. They announced they're expecting a baby in April. It's her first child with her beau. She took a break from tennis following the pregnancy announcement. She delivered the baby at a Palm Beach hospital.
The couple wanted to keep the sex of their baby a surprise, but they were both convinced it's a girl. "Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant," Alexis told Jimmy Kimmel. "She remarked that she feels like it has to be a girl, because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on. ... If anything, though, it's really just reinforced how just amazing and strong and powerful and awesome women are."
