Is Serena Williams’ 1-year-old little girl Alexis Olympia on her way to becoming a tennis champ? We might be getting ahead of ourselves, but she is showing signs of a possible passion for the sport.
Serena posted an adorable clip of her daughter playing with a few tennis rackets. Is she following in the footsteps of her 23-time Grand Slam-winning mama? “History in the making…” Serena captioned the cute video.
“Smash that racket, baby girl,” commented her dad and Serena’s husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
Of course, other famous followers couldn’t help but notice Alexis Olympia’s mini-me skills.
Olivia Wilde chimed in, “Already better than me,” while Amanda Seales offered up some crying laughing emojis.
Chelsea Handler joked, “This is ridiculous. Now, she’s going to start kicking ass on the court before she can talk?”
Serena often shares sweet photos of her baby girl on social media, from special little moments to memorable milestones. She snapped a pic of a “pre match hug” (her “new fav part” of her job) in January, and recently posted a photo of her getting some assistance on the balance beam! “Can’t wait for @olympiaohanian to get tips from @simonebiles,” she wrote.
She’s already dabbling in tennis and gymnastics? Watch out!
Serena has been candid about motherhood since having her first child – last month she penned a Fortune magazine essay for International Women’s Day that discussed the pressure working moms feel.
“I’m honest about my struggles as a working mom, because I want other women out there to know they are not alone,” she wrote.
But does Serena want her kid to take on a tennis career like she did?
“I don’t know. It’s a lot of work,” she told USA Today in 2018. “Plus, I mean, I don’t want her to have pressure from what I did, you guys (the media) talking about, ‘Are you going to be able to do as good as your mom?' I don’t want her to have that."
