Olympia Ohanian Is Her Mom Serena Williams' Best Model as She Poses in One of Her Brand's Face Covers
The novel coronavirus pandemic is still in full force in the United States. However, the issue of face masks has also become a contentious one, with many opting not to wear the protective gear.
With that in mind, several celebrities have begun campaigns to encourage people to stay safe and wear face masks. Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the daughter of tennis legend Serena Williams got in on the action too.

Yesterday, Williams posted a picture of her two-year-old rocking a custom face mask on her Instagram page. The mask appeared to have been made by Williams' Company.
In the photo, Olympia sports a tie-dye shirt while allowing her hair to run free. The little girl looked adorable as she made faces at the camera. Despite the family touch, it was all business for Williams who wrote in her caption:
"We just restocked our face covers @serena and have added a smaller size (my business partner approves)!... As always, follow CDC guidelines on how to wear face cloth coverings."
With the picture, Williams appears to hit several milestones in one post. She got to encourage people to stay safe during this trying time while also showing her daughter's cute face.
Also, getting her daughter to promote her brand should make for some cost-free marketing. Going by the excitement of many in the comment section, the face masks could sell out soon.
Olympia already has some modeling exposure as she joined her mom at last year's New York Fashion Week.
Olympia and her mother have been doing quite a lot recently. With the lockdown still in effect, the pair have had a lot of time to bond.
Recently, Williams shared photos of herself and the two-year-old donning matching outfits as they took to the court. While it appeared to have been a promotional shoot, they did strike cute mother-daughter poses.
Olympia's father, a tech entrepreneur, Alexis Ohanian Sr., also took to social media to share videos of the pair as they flexed their skills on the court.
Williams hasn't had to play in any competitions for months now. However, she could return to action soon as the U.S. Open calls. As for her daughter, it's a new world, and she's living it to the fullest.
