Serena Williams has shared the first picture of newborn daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr as well as a video documenting her entire pregnancy.
The tennis champion, 35, posted the first snap of her first child on her Instagram account on Wednesday, revealing that she’s spent nearly a whole week in hospital.
“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories,” she captioned the picture.
Williams also shared a two-minute YouTube video of her pregnancy and run up to the birth, as well as the first moments of Alexis’ life.
The clips featured personal videos taken with other half Alexis Ohanian, the first of which is shot just moments after they found out about the pregnancy.
The video ends with Williams saying: “Look what we got! A baby girl!”

The sportswoman recently revealed that she hopes that her views on feminism will help her to build a bright future for her daughter.
“There are barriers I hope to break so my baby, whether boy or girl, won’t have to live under those stipulations,” she told the Stellar magazine.
“I definitely am a feminist. I like to stick up for women and women’s rights. So many things happen and I just think ‘Wow, why don’t we have a chance?’
“If that makes me a feminist, I am proud to be one.”
