Serena Williams and husband Alexis Ohanian recently welcomed a baby girl named Adira River Ohanian. Now, see the moment their oldest child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., meet her little sister.
Love was all around when Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s daughter Olympia became a big sister.
Shortly after the couple announced that they had welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Adira, Alexis shared photos of his 5-year-old meeting her newborn sibling. As seen in images posted to Instagram Aug. 22, Olympia—clad in a pink dress with her nails painted blue—was all-smiles as the Reddit co-founder held the family’s newest addition in his arms. “Welcome, Adira River Ohanian,” the 40-year-old captioned the snapshots. “I’m grateful to report our house is teaming with love: a happy & healthy newborn girl and happy & healthy mama. Feeling grateful.”
In his post, Alexis also showed his appreciation for Serena, 41, and called her “the GMOAT” a.k.a. the greatest mother of all time. “You’ve now given me another incomparable gift,” he added. ” I’ll never forget the moment I introduced @olympiaohanian to her baby sister.”
News of Adira’s birth comes three months after Serena debuted her baby bump at the 2023 Met Gala. According to the retired tennis pro, she and Alexis—who tied the knot in 2017—kept the pregnancy a secret from Olympia until moments before they stepped onto the red carpet for fear that she’d spill the beans.
“Remember how you’ve been praying for a little sister or brother?” Serena asked Olympia in a YouTube video filmed on the morning of the prestigious fashion event. “Well, we went to the doctor, and it turns out I’m not getting fat but I have a baby in my belly.”
The little one’s response? “Are you kidding me?” Olympia asked her parents, before jumping up to hug her mom. “I’m so excited!”
