Serena Williams' Daughter Is Eating like a Boss & Shows off Her Adorable Afro Puffs in New Pic
Serena Williams is constantly melting hearts on social media with pics of her adorable daughter, Alexis Olympia. The most recent photo was no exception, as it shows Olympia’s rocking her now signature hairstyle while enjoying her breakfast.
Alexis Olympia is growing up fast, and fans can’t stop gushing about the adorable toddler.
The 1-year-old has an exclusive Instagram account ran by her parents, and in the most recent pic shared to it, Olympia showed her good manners while eating, rocking a bib and sitting alone at the table while eating some scrambled eggs.
The toddler wore her curly hair in two puffs, a hairstyle that has become her signature one.
Fans flocked to the comment section to compliment Olympia on her cuteness and point out her resemblance to Serena. “She’s SOOOOOO cute, and her Afro puffs are amazing! Oh, Olympia!!!!” wrote one user.
Another added, “She is getting so big looking just like her mom.” And a third one chimed in to say,
“Bonjour beautiful little one. I’m loving your Afro puffs. You are a sweet blessing to your Mama and Daddy, and we thank them both for sharing you with us.”
A few days ago, Serena and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, decided to throw an impromptu carnival-themed party for their little girl. “We wanted to just do something fun because we don't do birthdays,” Williams explained to her followers on Instagram.
Olympia turned one in September, but Serena surprised fans by revealing there would be no party for the girl since her family is part of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
According to the group’s website, “although the Bible does not explicitly forbid celebrating birthdays, it does help us to reason on key features of these events and understand God’s view of them.”
Williams, a worldwide tennis champion, recently made headlines for joining Nike on their new ad campaign, “Dream Crazy,” which encouraged women to follow their dreams even if people around them call them “crazy” for trying.
The message is one that Serena wants to pass down onto her daughter.
Talking to Allure a few months ago, the 23-times Grand Slam winner said:
“I think my mom instilled in us to be confident women, to really believe in ourselves, be proud of our heritage, our hair, and our bodies. That was something that was really important for her to teach us. I’m definitely teaching it to my daughter.”
However, Serena also wants her daughter to know that being strong is never easy, “not in this world we are living in."
“Standing up for yourself is not going to be easy, but it’s always eventually respected,” Williams explained. “Those are the people who’ve made a difference in this world, people that stand up for what’s right. If you look at history, those are the people that you really remember. And at the time, oh, my God, it seemed impossible.”
