Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. daughter of Serena Williams becomes the youngest Vogue Cover star at just 3 months.
The Mother Daughter duo is on the cover of Vogue February Issue.
Well the young one is definitely the Youngest and for sure the cutest cover star. Adorned in a white onesie, she looks straight into the camera.
The Mother, looks as beautiful as ever. The red dress with her signature curls, the smile and that strong eyes does weave a special magic. Do note the Big Rock on her Finger.
Sharing the picture on her Instagram page Serena Williams says she got emotional. She explains:
“When I first saw this @voguemagazine cover it brought tears to my eyes. All Vogue covers are special but to share this one with my beautiful daughter @olympiaohanian also the youngest Vogue cover star makes it moment I will never forget. The article is a must read.”
Serena on Motherhood and Tennis
The Article quotes her saying that before the passion of Tennis took over motherhood was one of her childhood dream.
“Now that I’m 36 and I look at my baby, I remember that this was also one of my goals when I was little, before tennis took over, when I was still kind of a normal girl who played with dolls. Oh, my God, I loved my dolls.”
At three months old, @olympiaohanian is our youngest cover star to date. "I’m so glad I had a daughter," says @serenawilliams. "I want to teach her that there are no limits."

She indeed got her Doll
The winner of 23 Grand Slams is not ready to settle down, in fact she believes that Alexis might actually help her perform better.
“But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams. I’m well aware of the record books, unfortunately. It’s not a secret that I have my sights on 25. And actually, I think having a baby might help. When I’m too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born. Knowing I’ve got this beautiful baby to go home to makes me feel like I don’t have to play another match. I don’t need the money or the titles or the prestige. I want them, but I don’t need them. That’s a different feeling for me.”
A much-anticipated return to the women’s tour. Marriage. Motherhood. Has any of it slowed our February cover star @SerenaWilliams down? Apparently not. At all.

Serena Williams also mentions in the interview that the pregnancy was enviably easy. Trouble arrived when her heart rate dove dangerously low during contractions and an emergency C- section was done.
The history of Blood Clots did interfere in the Tennis Stars recovery. As a CT scan the next day revealed several blood clots in her lungs. The things got worsen for a few days, but thankfully our Champion managed to surpass all troubles.
People might expect her to slow down after the baby and marriage with Alexis Ohanian. But the star will continue to shine as she says,
“I’ve been playing tennis since before my memories started,” she says. “At my age, I see the finish line. And when you see the finish line, you don’t slow down. You speed up.”
We Wish all the Speed!!! and many many more Grand Slams.
