We already knew the name Serena Williams gave her gorgeous new baby daughter was beautiful, but she has just revealed the extra special Aussie meaning behind it.
The tennis star revealed the little ‘fun fact’ about her daughter, Alexis Olympia, on Twitter, after explaining that she’s “having a hard time posting about anything that does not involve Alexis Olympia or something to do with her.”
It turns out, her daughters initials are a tribute to the Australian Open, which she won whilst pregnant!

Williams made headlines after announcing her pregnancy at 20 weeks in April. It didn’t take fans long to realise that meant she was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.
The tennis star confirmed it herself not long after, saying she was eight weeks pregnant when she won the Grand Slam.
Williams gave birth to her daughter in early September, sharing the first photo of her little one a week later.
Williams told fans on Instagram that they “had a lot of complications” but were on the mend and finally going home.
“So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days,” the tennis champion said a clip on her Instagram story.
“It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl.”
Williams and her Ohanian bucked the tradition of naming the firstborn son after the father and bestowed the honour on their little girl instead.
