Newlywed Serena Williams revealed her huge new wedding ring in a cute pic with her daughter, Alexis, on Wednesday, November 22.
The tennis ace, 36, who wed Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in New Orleans on November 16, holds onto her baby’s legs in the pic, showcasing her stunning bling, which features a massive stone surrounded by more diamonds.
Little Alexis was no slouch in the style stakes, either, looking adorable in an animal-print outfit as she lay on a matching blanket draped over Williams’ legs. “Daddy knows how much I love leopard print,” the Grand Slam champ captioned the pic on her daughter’s Instagram account.
In another Instagram post on Wednesday, the Wimbledon winner shared a dramatic pic of her wedding dress, thanking Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for helping her choose the gown, which was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. “I felt like a princess and superwoman all at once,” Williams captioned the pic.
The Olympic gold medalist also shared an inspiring message for her baby daughter in a Gatorade commercial released this week.
In the ad, Williams cradles a baby (Alexis was unwell and unable to be featured in the shoot) as she talks about the importance of teamwork and perseverance.
“Baby girl, I won’t mind if you play tennis badly. I won’t mind if you choose to never pick up a racket,” she tells her little girl, who was born in September. “But I beg you, in this game of life, please keep playing no matter what.”
