Serena Williams daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr attended a red carpet premiere for the new documentary - 'Being Serena.' But Serena's baby did not walk the carpet with her parents. In her new HBO Docu-series, "Being Serena," she gives fans access they've never given before, including some of the "most intimate moments over her whirlwind past year."
Instead, lil Alexis was off to the side with her nanny. The paps caught them as they were leaving the Time Warner Center — where the NY movie premiere was held.
"I'm having the best time as a mom," Williams, 36, told Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. "I just walked out and was giving her extra hugs and extra kisses." The 23-time Grand Slam winner said Alexis "Olympia" brings out "patience in me."
Baby Alexis was born September 1, 2017.
The ABC News report continues:
During her "amazing" pregnancy, Williams said she "didn't have a day of morning sickness."
"I didn't have anything wrong," she added. "Then I got to the hospital, and then I had to have an emergency C-section."
"Then everything was fine for the first, like, you know, eight to 12 hours," she said. "Then it was after that that things started going crazy."
She said she feels "honored" to have the "reception of everyone" as she prepares to hit the court again.
"It actually makes me want to work harder. It makes me want to do better," she said. "Most of all, I just want to do it for me, and for ... my family."
