Serena Williams' Husband Alexis Shows Their Daughter Olympia Adorably Cheering for Her Mom
Alexis Ohanian shared a cute video showing his and Serena Williams' daughter, Olympia Ohanian Jr., cheering her mother to victory on his Instagram Story.
The ongoing Cincinnati Masters is different from that of previous years due to the current COVID-19 pandemic causing the event to be restricted to fans. However, Serena Williams is not short on support back home.
Her loving husband Alexis Ohanian and their adorable daughter Olympia are firmly behind the tennis star as she continues her preparation for the oncoming US Open.

Fans saw a glimpse of that support yesterday when Ohanian shared a video that showed Olympia cheering her mother to victory.
In the video, Olympia wore a gorgeous blue and white dress while her father who was beside her wore a black T-shirt. The father-daughter duo was indoors in their home.
Olympia looked into the camera and said, "Go Mommy!!" after which she smiled happily, sticking her tongue out as she did. Proud dad Ohanian also smiled happily in the video.
The post by Ohanian showed once again that Olympia is her mom's biggest fan. This is not the first time that the little tot would be cheering her mother on in a tennis game.
Olympia has also taken into her mother's passion for sports and became the youngest team owner in professional sports last month.
In December 2018, when she was only 15-months old, cameras captured Olympia cheering for her mom adorably in a tennis exhibition match in Abu Dhabi. That time, Williams played against her sister, Venus, who Olympia also cheered on.

Williams returned to tennis action this week and is using the Cincinnatti Masters to shape her game for the US Open that follows afterward.
Victory at the US Open will mean she will finally claim an elusive 24th Grand Slam title. It will also bring her relief after she lost in the last two finals of the championship.
Despite her lofty ambitions, Williams remains conscious of the pandemic and the athlete said she is being extra cautious and avoids risks.
Williams is also conscious that participating in the tournaments was a big risk for her because of her lung issues and health. However, she does her best to keep her mind at rest so that she can perform well at the tournaments.
The tennis star will give her best, knowing that her daughter is rooting for her back home. Williams and Olympia share an adorably close bond. The tennis star usually shares pictures and videos of their cute moments on social media.
Williams recently posted on her Instagram Stories, showing her and Olympia having a makeup play date, with the latter trying to glam up her mom's face.
The 2-year-old and her mom joined a star-studded ownership group comprising of A-listers to form a new National Women's Soccer League team — Angel City. The team will be based in Los Angeles and will play in the league from the Spring of 2022.
