Along with a sweet snap of herself and her new daughter, Serena also directed followers to a link on her website, where she shared a too-cute-for-words video of Alexis’ journey into the world.
The clip shows everything from Serena celebrating her Australian Open win while secretly pregnant, right through to the first glimpse of baby Alexis in the hospital, where Serena is heard saying she spent six days in hospital due to “a lot of complications”.

Only last month, Serena celebrated her daughter’s imminent arrival with a 1950s-themed baby shower that looked like the most fun in the world. Joined by the likes of sister Venus, Kelly Rowland, Eva Longoria and Ciara, we’re certain little Alexis is going to have plenty amazing women to look up to as she goes through life.
