When she was 20 weeks pregnant in January 2017, Serena won the Australian Open. That win was the tennis champion’s 23rd Grand Slam, in addition to 14 in women’s doubles, and 2 in mixed doubles.

Serena finally gave birth on the 1st of September after it was reported earlier in the day that she had gone into labor at a hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida, where she checked in the day before.

On September 13, 2017, Serena shared the very first photos of her daughter on Instagram, revealing the baby’s full name: Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. The story accompanying the post explained the baby is named after her dad, Alexis, which is unique, as “Juniors” are traditionally sons named after their fathers.

The post also revealed the baby’s birth weight to be 6lb., 14 oz. — and Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr’s ‘Grand Slam Titles count’ as 1.
