Serena Williams is one proud mum!
Today, the tennis legend took to her social media pages to speak about how far she has come since giving birth to her first child. “319 days since I gave birth to this amazing baby
@OlympiaOhanian I’ve spent 319 of those days with her,” said the proud mum. Adding, “I’m so fortunate.”
This comes just days after her husband Alexis Ohanian recalled the frightening complications Serena had endured after the birth of their daughter Alexis Olympia. “Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back,” said the Reddit co-founder after Angelique Kerber beat Serena Williams for Grand Slam history.
Adding, “We just wanted her to survive—10 months later, she’s in the #Wimbledon final.@serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again soon—she’s got the greatest one waiting at home for her —and our family knows she’ll win many more trophies, too. She’s just getting started.”
Now, Serena feels so fortunate to be by her daughter’s side, and we are so lucky to have her.
