Serena Williams cannot believe that she is a mom! The tennis superstar recently took to Twitter to share excitement over her new journey down parenthood avenue.

“It’s very weird for me to believe I have a child… a KID. I’m a mom. A real MOM,” she tweeted. Serena’s fiance, Alexis Ohanian, retweeted her status and added “and a great one at that” to it.


Serena and Alexis’ gushing over parenthood is heartwarming. It was just a few days ago that Alexis took to Instagram to dote on his newborn daughter who he deemed his legacy. “Dad life is the greatest,” Alexis told his social media followers. “Entrepreneurship is all-consuming, it’s sleepless, we call our startups our ‘babies,’ we are ridiculously proud of them, and we pour all of ourselves into them — but she is already all that and more, she is my legacy.”

Alexis uploaded a video clip of his and Serena’s journey to labor and delivery last week. The footage shows all of the high moments of the expectancy that includes Serena winning the Australian Open while eight weeks pregnant and the happy couple building a nursery for baby Alexis. Of course, the most precious segment of the video comes at the end when Serena introduces her and Alexis’ beautiful daughter to social media fans. “We had a lot of complications but look what we got,” the new mom says in the clip. “We’ve got a baby girl.” Too cute!

Alexis Olympia is Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s first child. Stay tuned for more celebrity baby news!
