Serena Williams Debuts Baby Girl, Reveals Surprising Name

As you’ve likely heard, Serena Williams welcomed a baby girl earlier this month, and potential future competitors should be shaking in their tennis shoes.

Yes, we already have every reason to believe the little girl will excel in the sport that made her mother famous.

After all, at less than two weeks old, she’s already following in her father’s footsteps in more ways than one.

Serena’s bundle of joy is not only taking the Internet by storm, just like her daddy, she also shares the Reddit co-founder’s first name.

Serena uploaded a video to YouTube this morning, revealing not only the first images of her daughter, but also the baby girl’s full name.

Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. entered the world on September 1, weighing 6 lbs., 14 oz., and, as the video wryly notes, already having one Grand Slam title under her belt.

(Unbeknownst to the world, Serena was already 8 weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open back in January.)

A daughter named after her dad, complete with the “Jr.” suffix! We love it!

Serena is re-inventing the baby-naming game the same way she re-invented tennis.

“So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days,” Williams says in the clip below.

“It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl!”
