The “GMOAT” or “Greatest Mother of All Time” has welcomed her second baby!
Serena Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, shared the news across social media platforms on August 22. “Welcome, Adira River Ohanian,” the new father wrote in a social post announcing his daughter’s birth. “I’m grateful to report our house is teaming with love: a happy & healthy newborn girl and happy & healthy mama.”
The Reddit co-founder added that he was “Feeling grateful. Serena Williams you’ve now given me another incomparable gift — you’re the GMOAT,” he said, bragging that his wife is The Greatest Mother of All Time.
Ohanian thanked all the “amazing medical staff who took care of my wife and our daughter,” adding that he “would never forget the moment I introduced @olympiaohanian to her baby sister.”
The tech entrepreneur ended his post with a quote in reference to his daughter’s middle name. “Your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea,” he wrote. Adira, typically a girl’s name of Hebrew origin, this increasingly popular name means strong, noble and powerful. Adjectives Williams and Ohanian surely hope their daughter will embody as she grows up!
Serena Williams Shares Her “Pre-Push Party” Spa Day
Williams took to her in early August YouTube channel to share the inside details of what she coined as her “Pre-Push Party” hosted by her friends and her sister. No ordinary baby shower, unbeknownst to Williams, her friends and family had organized a surprise spa day. The venture capitalist shared that she was treated to a manicure, facial and foot massage, all in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her loved ones.
The proud mom to 5-year-old Olympia with another girl on the way, Williams took a moment amid her relaxation to discuss how she was felt about the upcoming arrival of her second child. “Baby No. 2 is on the way after, you know, lots of time waiting,” she said. “So, how am I feeling about it? Excited, anxious, nervous, happy … all of the above.”
Williams confessed that she was “actually not quite ready today,” — “I don’t have my stuff ready, like the crib and the changing table and a plethora of other things” but the soon-to-be mom of two said she was “mentally ready-ish.” With her friends and family by her side she’s surely ready to tackle anything.
“I feel so loved today,” Williams said in the video. “Everyone’s here. Family’s here. We’re all just relaxed. I feel loved and relaxed.”
