“Just thinking about all the great things I’m going to achieve in life…”

“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.,” Williams wrote along with a precious snap of the mother and daughter together, the first photo to be shared of the little lady.

Reportedly, the little girl will go by her middle name Olympia, which means has a befitting athletic, goddess-like aura, with its meaning related to Mount Olympus, home of Greek gods, and the Olympic Games.

Olympia was born August 30 this year at Miami Hospital. She weighed a healthy healthy 6lbs 14ozs at birth.

Back in January, when Williams was 8 weeks pregnant with baby Olympia and won the Australian Open, she told Vogue: 

“Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way.”

She also confessed that she was nervous about childbirth: “I’m not a spring chicken. The one thing I really want is an epidural, which I know a lot of people are against, but I’ve had surgeries galore, and I don’t need to experience any more pain if I can avoid it.”

Williams also let on that she didn’t think she was a ‘baby person’, saying “that’s something I have to work on. I’m so used to me-me-me, taking care of my health, my body, my career. I always ask, Am I going to be good enough?”

We think she is going to be an amazing mum!

Here’s the full picture of the gorgeous mummy and little princess. We wish them all the very best and we can’t wait to see how this little lady shines, just like her mummy.
