Serena Williams gave birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian (named after her father Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian), on Sept. 1, 2017. The tennis superstar is absolutely loving motherhood, as she’s been gushing about her little bundle of joy and sharing adorable photos of her on social media.
Williams even created an Instagram account for her daughter to share all her precious moments. Since her first post on Sept. 13, Alexis Olympia’s account has grown to over 83,000 followers and counting. So forget puppies and kittens — Williams’ baby girl is serving up a ton of cuteness online.
Here’s why her Instagram account is the one of most adorable you’ll ever see.
Williams can’t stop gushing
I'm having a hard time posting about anything that does not involve Alexis Olympia or something to do with her.

Since Alexis is obviously too young to post to the image-sharing site herself, her social media savvy parents do that for her. Therefore, all of the content found on the little one’s Instagram page is either posted by the tennis pro or her fiancé.
With mom and dad running their daughter’s account, we’re sure they’ll continue to post plenty of photos and important firsts in the future, especially since Williams admitted that she finds it hard not to.
The adorable captions
The captions on the baby’s Instagram posts are equally as cute as her pictures, especially because they are all written in first person.
So not only do you get to see an adorable photo of her, you also get a caption sharing what she might be thinking at that very moment.
Her Instagram debut
Alexis’ social media debut came on Sept. 13, just 12 days after she was born.
“Thinking about mommy and daddy,” the caption of her first post read.
That same day, Williams posted a sweet photo on her own Instagram account of the two resting together. In that photo, she introduced her daughter to her millions of followers.
Like mother, like daughter
In this post from Sept. 15, Alexis let the world know exactly who she takes after, flexing in a onesie that reads, “Smart and strong like my mama.”
When mom sleeps …
According to an Instagram post on Sept. 22, when the tennis star gets some shut-eye, Alexis hangs out and goes on “adventures” with her dad. Too cute!
An open letter from Williams
#Repost @serenawilliams (@get_repost) ・・・ Dear Mom, You are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter ) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don't know how I would react if she has to go through what I've gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day…. Read the rest on my @Reddit profile. Link in my Momma's bio.
On Sept. 20, 2017, Williams reposted a side-by-side photo from her account to her daughter’s feed. The caption was an emotional letter, which the tennis champ wrote to her own mother about being a new mom.
Her letter was posted in its entirety on Reddit.
Mother and daughter selfie
One of the cutest pictures of all on Alexis’ new account is a mother and daughter Snapchat photo featuring the duo — in flower crowns, of course.
Williams posted the same image in black and white to her Instagram on Oct. 14, with the question, “Ladies is a ‘push present’ a thing? If so what did you get if anything? #conversationstarter.” Clearly, Williams is loving life as a new mom.
