“Welcome, Adira River Ohanian,” Alexis Ohanian wrote in an Instagram post featuring a series of family photos of the newborn. “I’m grateful to report our house is teaming with love: a happy & healthy newborn girl and happy & healthy mama,” he added.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion seems to be enjoying her motherhood as she shared a video on Instagram showing off the outfit gifted by Nike for baby Adira. Williams has been associated with the American sportswear brand since her early playing days. “Look at all this stuff for baby Adira. I really love the little Nike shoes, they’re always just so sweet. Look at the little crop-top!!!”

Williams and Ohanian are already parents to 5-year-old Olympia, whom Williams gave birth to in September 2017. She was eight weeks pregnant with Olympia when she won the Australian Open earlier that year.

She has faced many questions about whether she would raise her daughter to play tennis, to which she answered saying she has already hired a coach for her daughter. She also posts many pictures of her and her daughter on the tennis court with rackets.

The couple don’t celebrate Olympia’s birthday owing to Serena’s faith. “We don’t do it because we are Jehovah’s Witnesses,” Serena explained at a press conference in 2017.
