Serena Williams and her daughter, Olympia, were in a great mood in a recent video clip shared by the tennis champion's husband, entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian.
23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams may be focused on her tennis game during the 2021 Australian Open. However, she still has time for a little fun with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and their daughter, Olympia.
In a video shared by Ohanian on his Instagram account, Williams could be seen whispering something into her daughter's ear as she sat strapped into her car seat.
TWO AGAINST ONE
Olympia looked adorable in a green and blue Nike jacket with tights. Her curly brown hair was tied into a cute puff revealing her happy face. Williams wore a violet jacket and black cap.
After Williams quickly whispered in her daughter's ear, she beckoned her to give her dad a high-five hand gesture, where she proceeded to trick him by caressing her own face instead. Ohanian captioned:
"I was already outnumbered. Now this. ?? @olympiaohanian x @serenawilliams is too much."
Fans were entertained by the interaction between Williams, Ohanian, and their three-year-old daughter and the post received many positive remarks of adoration, especially about Olympia.
One fan gushed, "Omg her little face!!!! That smile!!! She’s so cute!" Another fan commented, "What a happy and adorable kid," with a third adding, "Cuteness Overload."
BEING OLYMPIA'S MOM
The video clip also showcased the close bond between Williams and Olympia. The pair are often seen together, and Olympia even joins her mom on the tennis court for her practice sessions.
Naturally, Olympia loves playing tennis with her superstar mom. The toddler already knows that her mom is an internationally recognized tennis player, and occasionally she calls Williams by her first name.
BALANCING MOTHERHOOD AND CAREER
Williams is something of a modern-day "Superwoman" because of the way she has managed to maintain her competitive tennis career, thriving business, and philanthropy, all while being a devoted wife and mother.
The fashion designer has been exemplary in how she juggles her priorities, but Williams has been honest about its challenges and how grateful she is for her days off, where she spends time with family.
THE WILLIAMS SISTERS
Even when Williams is working, she values family time, which often includes squeezing in some sisterly bonding time with her elder sister, Venus Williams, who is also an iconic tennis champion.
The pair are competing individually in Melbourne at this year's Australian Open where Williams will face Anastasia Potapova in a third-round match on February 12.
