Serena Williams and her daughter, Alexis Olympia, had fun poolside with Olympia’s doll, Qai Qai. The celebrity mom and her daughter were a matching pair.
“Covered in sunshine like a resort,” Serena told her social media fans. The tennis star also shed like on NIKE’s brilliance to create a swimsuit for Qai Qai that matched the vibes of the day. “When @nike makes a swimsuit for not just @olympiaohanian but @realqaiqai too,” Williams told her Instagram fans.
Alexis Olympia is getting into the spirit of fashion with collaborations and photoshoots. It was just a few weeks ago that Serena Williams and her daughter were featured in Stuart Weitzman’s Spring 2021 campaign.
“It was so fun,” Williams told WWD in an interview after the shoot. “It’s something I’ll be able to show [Olympia] in 20 years and you can’t beat that,” the celebrity mom said. “I’m not ashamed to say it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
Although the photoshoot was nothing short of priceless, Serena admitted that she was a bit nervous that Alexi Olympia would not be up for the task. “We were getting nervous,” Williams admitted. “She took her nap [before] and you can’t shoot with kids for that long, so she came and went nuts—just pose, pose, pose—and then she was out,” Serena said. “I was like—that’s how you shoot.”
Perhaps, music helped Alexis Olympia channel her energy. “We had the ‘Baby Shark’ [song] playing,” Serena told WWD. “[Alexis] loves her little Disney songs, and then she loves the ‘Body’ song [by Megan Thee Stallion] but I put the clean version on.”
Alexis Olympia is Serena Williams’ daughter with the tennis star’s husband, Alexis Ohanian Sr. Little Alexis turns 4-years-old in September. Serena and Alexis Ohanian also celebrate their four-year wedding anniversary this year.
