"Making All Her Internet Aunties Proud"

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s daughter, Alexis Olympia, was ready to play soccer this past weekend. The youngster posed while in full gear on the field.


Alexis Olympia appeared ready to dominate the game in one candid, which featured her showing her muscles while standing with a foot on top of the soccer ball. The second picture was a more playful Alexis Olympia who seemed to run towards the person holding the camera.

“Making all her Internet aunties proud,” one fan said of the little one’s activities on the field. “Wait, when did she grow up,” another social media follower asked.

It indeed seems like yesterday that Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were introducing their daughter to the world. In her five years, Alexis Olympia has managed to build a significant following on Instagram and have a stake or two in the Angel City FC soccer team. The youngster has also traveled the world and served as the main inspiration behind her mom’s decision to retire from tennis earlier this year.

Serena expressed her desire to give her daughter the sibling Alexis Olympia wanted in her farewell letter. The legendary tennis player also told her fans that she did not want to be pregnant while competing as a professional athlete again. Serena closed out a decades-long tennis career at the end of August.

“My whole life that I can remember I’ve been getting up and training, or training mentally, for a goal, and so I think that day [when I retire] will be weird, but I also will be extremely excited, because my whole life, I’ve woken up and had to train for a goal or something, and this is the first day I won’t even have to think about it ever,” the star athlete said prior to her final day of playing on the court.

“It’s something that I’m actually super excited about, but at the same time, it’s mixed emotions,” Williams admitted. “Like, I literally can’t wait,” she added. ‘I am so excited.”

Alexis Olympia turned five years old in September. She is Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s first child.
