Ciara and Serena Williams are mommy goals in a video where they could be seen teaching their little daughters French greetings while swimming. 


Over the weekend, Ciara took to Instagram to share a short clip of herself and her world-famous pal, Serena Williams. This happened while the beautiful pair had been on holiday with their respective families in Cannes. 


In the video, the women can be seen taking a swim with their little daughters. Ciara and Serena have no makeup on and were wearing swimsuits with the former tying her hair up and away from the water while Serena, on the other hand, had her hair covered by a colourful scarf which many fans seemed to find unpretentious and downright amazing. 

The athlete's baby girl, Olympian Ohanian is wearing white baby swimwear and is seen floating in the pool thanks to Serena and a pair of floaters. Sienna, Ciara’s two-year-old daughter, had a pink swimsuit on.


The most heartwarming moment in the video came as Serena implored Olympian to say “hi” to whoever was taking the video. Ciara followed up by doing the same with Sienna and then took a turn by saying the greetings in French.

“Bonjour!“ Ciara said repeatedly pointing straight at the camera until Sienna, much to Ciara and Serena’s glee, repeated the French word. Being the proud mama, Ciara also said “a bientot!” which Sienna adorably repeated after her. 


The sweet exchange was followed by laughter from behind the camera, and the video ended with Sienna starting a splash fight which Olympian, who will soon clock two, gladly participated in.

Littered by heart emojis, Ciara’s caption for the video reads:

“The moments I cherish️. @serenawilliams  and I with our girls in Cannes. #SweetMemories #MomLife.”


Serena showed the singer love by commenting “love this” in the comments section. She, however, isn't the only one that loves Ciara’s post as fans showed that they also cherish it by sharing beautiful compliments.

The video which is barely three days old has already amassed over a million likes and thousands of comments! Most of the comments are directed at the beautiful friendship between Serena and Ciara, while many others love the adorable exchange between their cute daughters. 

“They're gonna be bffs just like their moms,” one fan, wrote alongside a heart emoticon.


Another fan, @thenylc said:

“I love this so much! Two incredibly hard-working moms living their best life!”

Ciara and Serena have one of the most desirable relationships in the entertainment industry. They have been close pals for years and now similarly growing their families, seem to have a lot in common. It makes fans look forward to more and more posts like this sweet video.
