Fun Fact Behind the Name

Serena Williams has had her little bundle of joy. The little girl’s name is Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. She is named after her father [Serena’s fiancé] Alexis Ohanian, the Reddit cofounder.

On September 28, she shared a little fun fact with the world about her daughter’s name. 

In a tweet, she wrote “Fun fact my daughters initials are AO as in the Aussie open she won with me @AustralianOpen.”

Many people are speculating whether or not Baby Alexis will be a champion like her mommy. It’s anyone’s guess, but it’s safe to say that with a beautiful, strong and talented mother like Serena anything is possible!
