Serena Williams has firmly embraced motherhood since welcoming her daughter Olympia Ohanian over a year ago. And she’s just uploaded a cute mommy-and-me moment that has fans gushing over their legs.
Williams posted a shot of herself with the 1-year-old daughter with venture capitalist Alexis Ohanian on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Both the 23-time Grand Slam champion and her daughter had their legs exposed, leading fans to feel Olympia is taking after her tennis star mom in that department.
“She has her mamas legs❤️”
“Momma’s Legs 👊🏽‼️”
“Look at her legs wow born athlete.”
“Omg her legs 😍❤️ she’s so adorable.”
“Happy Thanksgiving. I can see those little legs on a tennis court one day.”
Williams herself is known for her muscular build, and she even remarked on how her daughter took after her athletic body not long after she was born last September.
“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. I don’t know how I would react if she has to go through what I’ve gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day,” the star said in a letter addressed to her own mother and posted on Reddit a year ago.
Williams also addressed her powerful body while talking to Harper’s Bazaar U.K. for a July cover story, where she disclosed that at one time she hoped to become a size 4.
“But I love that I said that, because I can understand. I can show Olympia that I struggled, but now I’m happy with who I am and what I am and what I look like. … Olympia was born and she had my arms, and instead of being sad and fearful about what people would say about her, I was just so happy.”
