"I'm having a hard time posting about anything that does not involve Alexis Olympia or something to do with her", Serena tweeted.

She and 34-year-old Ohanian became parents on 1 September, with Williams introducing their newborn to the world on Instagram, before setting up an Instagram page dedicated to their child.

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. Serena revealed that her daughter's name had been kept in tune with Australian Open, the Grand Slam she had won earlier this year while being pregnant.

Though it only came to be known following Serena's pregnancy announcement on Snapchat, which showcased her baby bump in a yellow one-piece swimsuit, with the caption "20 weeks".
