Serena Williams has fully embraced motherhood and is loving every minute of it.
On Wednesday, the new mom shared a sweet video of her six-week-old daughter, Alexis Olympia, with her fans on Snapchat. And while the infant’s chubby cheeks and dark curly hair were enough to steal our hearts, we couldn’t help but notice how stunning (and well-rested) Williams looked as she planted a gentle kiss on her daughter’s head.
Baby Alexis has been a social media star ever since she was born on Sept. 1. Not only have Williams and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, been publicly documenting their daughter’s growth, but they also set up Twitter and Instagram accounts for her, providing us with plenty of aww-worthy photos.

Williams’ latest Snapchat video of Alexis comes just one day after she announced she would make her comeback to tennis at the 2018 Australian Open in January. This makes sense, considering how meaningful the annual event is to the 36-year-old athlete.
Williams’ previously beat her famous sister Venus at the tournament while pregnantand purposely gave her daughter the same initials as the event.
Fun fact my daughters initials are AO as in the Aussie open she won with me @AustralianOpen

“We have a special relationship with Serena, the Williams family, both her and Venus,” said tournament director Craig Tiley. “She wants to come back in 2018 and defend her title. Obviously, at training now, there is several months to go and it will be up to her as far as where she is with her fitness.”
People magazine noted that Williams previously revealed her plans to compete at the 2018 Australian Open. Back in July during a TED 2017 Conference in Vancouver, the tennis pro said, “I definitely plan on coming back. I’m not done yet. If [Venus is] still playing, I know I can play. This is just a new part of my life. My baby’s going to be in the stands and hopefully cheering for me.”
