Serena Williams Says This Is the True Meaning Behind Her Daughter's Name”

We already knew the name Serena Williams gave her gorgeous new baby daughter was lovely, but she has just revealed the extra special Aussie meaning behind it.

Williams gave birth to her daughter in early September, sharing the first photo of her little one a week later.

Alexis Olympia's name celebrates a special connection with one of the grand slam tournaments.

Serena Williams has released a heartwarming video diary and the first images of her newborn daughter Alexis, who shares a name with her father and Williams' fiance, Alexis Ohanian. And Williams' recently revealed that her daughter's name was inspired by her big win.

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

Williams made headlines after announcing her pregnancy at 20 weeks in April.

When Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam in January, not many people were aware of her being pregnant.

"I was nervous", Williams said during the talk.

'Mum, I'm not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman'.

"It wasn't very easy. I had to really take all that energy and put it in a paper bag, so to say, and throw it away".

American Mary Joe Fernandez, a runner-up at the 1990 and 1992 Australian Opens and 1993 French Open, said that she could not have done it but "Serena is an exception to a lot of rules".

She continued: 'I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. "I just want to put that out there". I'm not walking anything back, but I'm just saying it's pretty intense.

"I definitely am a feminist". 'I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body.
