Serena Williams and Olympia Ohanian

Serena Williams, 36, and her adorable biracial infant, Olympia Ohanian, cover American Vogue magazine. It's a great achievement whenever a black person covers Vogue because the occurrence is so rare. Serena shared the beautiful cover on her Instagram account on Wednesday.

The proud mom captioned the image:

"When I first saw this @voguemagazine cover it brought tears to my eyes. All Vogue covers are special but to share this one with my beautiful daughter @olympiaohanian also the youngest Vogue cover star makes it moment I will never forget. The article is a must read. Link in bio".

  • Such_a_fn_Lady

    Are we gonna act like that's not photoshopped? I mean, I know Serena was in good shape before the baby but come on now...Either that or she's got on a helluva waist trainer.

  • imright

    her daughter looks nothing like her ? but i feel like that was the goal ?????

  • Jen_no_juice

    Nice cover Serena!

  • oshh16

    *DEEP EMOTIONAL SIGH*

  • Ebony Starr

    Hey Olympia! It's great that you invited your mom to be on your cover. Great photo!

  • A D N

    Beautiful baby Serena. I hope Serena isn't one of the black females to change their appearance to mirror their spouses...if you know what I mean...

    Hi lil baby!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    gorgeous baby!! some people want kids and take matters into their hands when the ideal doesn't happen. I'm happy for Serena and I hope she's enjoying these precious moments away from noisemakers.

  • freelancepimp .

    I hope she made them pay her for that. I think I remember something about them trying to low ball Beyonce back in the day for pictures of her and Blue Ivy.

  • justlooking

    Motherhood What a Beautiful Blessing

    Great COVER, Gorgeous Mother and Adorable baby.

  • freelancepimp .

    It goes without saying. I am sure even the baby was airbrushed.

  • SpillyNillie

    Baby is cute...Serena looks a little stiff in the face...I still like her tho

  • justlooking

    Maybe when it was me, but after I had my son at 27, I looked like I was 16.

    Birth changes you in so many ways, to include your complexion. My Granny would say, babies purify you.

  • Lis

    Can she stop already? I wish she would baby those eyebrows the way she does this infant.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Photo shop these days is no joke. She is on the cover of vogue simply because she is married to a WHITE man.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Her face looks different. Cute baby but mines will be cuter ?

  • Ni Ni

    I'm glad that happened for you, but that doesn't work for everyone. I've seen some who look horrible after giving birth, no offense. My old best friend had the smoothest dark skin, it shined it was so pretty. But after she had the baby, she her skin got really bad. Her face got lighter and she had spots and pimples.

  • free

    olympia looks like her paw but she got them williams brows.

  • University

    ?Black girl magic?
    So beautiful! Serena is everything! Strong, powerful, talented, intelligent, beautiful, and the greatest in her sport. Such an amazing role model.

    Here's another beautiful pic that includes her Mom and her sisters...

  • free

    looka oracene looking all young!

  • University

    I just love Oracene. She has raised 5 strong intelligent beautiful daughters. Her oldest daughter though was killed in 2003, so heart breaking.

  • Marlika

    Nice picture, but she’s starting to act like DJ Khalid.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Adorable little Tink!

  • Coy little wink

    Those eyebrows again...why lawd ?

    She needs to stop what she's doing to her face too...I see it

  • Yardgirl

    I totally agree!! The baby is cuuuuuute!!

  • Yoni7

    You better pray so.

  • You Could Never

    This isnt her first Vogue cover. Its actually her 3rd.

  • imright

    insecurities ? ? sisssss

  • You Could Never

    I done went from calling Serena, Holiday Hort on here years and years back, to now defending her. Leave this damn girl alone. Shit.

  • brownisback

    Lol I'd forgotten about that

  • University

    When ignorance blinds thee. This is her 3rd cover. With these two being taken long before she met her husband.

  • brownisback

    OT: My boss brought in a bunch of snacks for everyone and had a ton of fruit roll ups......Guess who took most of them

  • You Could Never

    I didnt. She really did look like Holiday back then but has since found her way. I want folks to leave her be. Who is she bothering? NOOOOOOOOBODY in my Keith Sweat voice.

  • You Could Never

    Total help me sing

  • You Could Never

    lol

  • hottlanta

    Getting rid of a sorry man will do it everything.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I don’t need to pray for that honey. There are more important prayers that need to be answered.

  • hottlanta

    I know you got some for lunch and put some in your purse for tonight when you watch television. Did you also get enuf to be the candy lady on the street to resell them for profit. My gurl.

  • Yoni7

    Ok, honey boo-boo.

  • NeverSurprised

    A wonderful, accomplished, humble young woman. I adore her.

  • You Could Never

    I never cared what my kids looked like. I prayed for their health. Not their looks.

  • University

    Exactly. A beautiful successful black queen, and an amazing role model for our beautiful daughters. These same people would rather praise someone like Nicki Minaj, or some other ratchet embarrassment.

  • hottlanta

    Serena making a comeback according to the cover. Wow what has she been doing working at Chuck E Cheese somewhere.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Right, keep it moving sweetie

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    You say this because?

  • Yoni7

    You do the same, sugga.

  • You Could Never

    Felt like it.

  • You Could Never

    You as well.

  • You Could Never

    Why does this font want this smoke today?

  • NeverSurprised

    Thank you for documenting the ignorance with receipts.

    Not today Satan- you not even worth the energy. Take your hair hat wearing ugly manless ass home.

    Damn, heathen. You won't win. Dumb child!

  • Yoni7

    RIGHT! Folks be dumb asf. I swanny!

  • Yoni7

    Come thru!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Yet you continue to push yourself up on me on a simple joke I made. You don’t have ANYTHING better else to do but to harass me?

    Back up off me, I’m not gay- NO!!! (Genuine voice)

    Your trifling arse blocked too ?.

    Go try to p*ssy grind on someone else, I don’t swing that way. Kick rocks Felecia.

  • Chuck

    Serena did well on having a baby by a non-Black man. Because she and her father are super unattractive, she had no choice; otherwise, the baby would have been ugly. Her baby is pretty.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Ha- nah, according to THEM being a single black female was enough.

  • Quitedeliteful

    NOOOOOOOOBODY in my Keith Sweat voice.

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Serena got what she wanted a non black child that looks nothing like herself.

    I see the resident mammy in here calling this sell out a queen and other stupid nonsense. REAL royalty knows their value and worth. Serena married an ugly white man with less money than her. Serena hard face ass wanted a kid with softer features and lighter skin. If she were a black man y'all would be ready to stone her ass. The hypocrisy in here is astounding.

  • Noirluv45

    Mommy and daughter are lovely.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    FACTS! If she were a dude no one would be singing her praises here. She's a sell out like all the other swirlers. I guess cause she's a black womsn she gets a pass. Nah, she ain't shit like the rest.

  • WhooCares

    Yeppp!!

  • WhooCares

    +1

  • Luv Pitties

    He has a radio show that comes on at night out here and that man tries to sound so sexy I end up laughing while driving on my way to work

  • Luv Pitties

    I didn't know Birdman and Toni got married

  • alex

    A lot to unpack in this comment, lol. I'll just say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and just like any group of people, not all bi-racial people are attractive.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Are you dumb? If Serena had a kid with a black man I highly doubt the baby would be ugly. Yeah she has a strong face, but that doesn't mean her and a black man would produce an ugly child. That's some ignorant racist shit! Her child with a black man would have been a superhero genetics wise. Especially if the dad was just as athletic.

  • alex

    You are making me not want to have any kids, lol.

  • hottlanta

    So she is supposed to sit up and WAIT for a black man to want marry her and have a baby by her. BRAVO Serena for doing you the way you want to do you.

  • alex

    I agree. I'm not up on the celebrity gossip, but hasn't she dated several black men before? Ashies complain about how masculine and unattractive she is, then get mad that she found someone.

  • Kanyade

    iconic Joanne LOL

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Who said that? She settled for an ugly white man , who has less money than her. Y'all act as if black men only live in america. There are wealthy black men that ONLY marry black women. She has the resources to travel the world to find love. Instead ahe choose to stay domestic and marry an "broke" ugly white man. Yeah she won alright . Please.

  • Lady_Elle

    Beautiful cover!
    Olympia is the youngest cover girl ever!
    Happy for Serena!
    Her husband... her choice!

  • TheOwley

    This should have been her tenth appearance in that rag. Kim made it a rag. Cute pic though.

  • TheOwley

    She did permanent brow make up and the process used went awfully wrong.

  • Ebony Starr

    She's probably still thanking that young woman for taking him off of her hands! I remember when she was asked about the relationship between Richard and his wife Lakeisha. She said all that I have to say is "good luck to her."

  • Ebony Starr

    I worried until I heard that first cry! Unfortuna

  • SumthinSweeter

    I like her hair in the pic. She should rock curly/kinky more often.

  • Dowoop

    The blonde she had on the other day looked really good on her too.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I don't really find him ugly at all. If he's an "ugly" man, your beauty standards are probably astronomical. Can anyone live up to them black or white?

  • SumthinSweeter

    LOL! You acting as if she turned you down personally. FYI, she dated Common for a bit.

  • Dowoop

    So she should go man hunting like people go house hunting?

  • Dowoop

    Nobody can be as bad as DJ Khalid was!

  • Bossy704

    Beautiful baby.

  • i troll it like i see it

    She has, but it's never enough...she was supposed to sit and wait and go barren before she married outside her race. Shes like many black women, exclusively dated black men until she realized that she may have to broaden her horizons (the way black men have done with no backlash or qualms about it) if she wanted to share her life with someone and be a mom.

  • Dowoop

    Lord! That string of msgs between you 3 had me dying.

  • Bossy704

    I would have loved the super hero baby!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I was going to respond to chuck then realized it was trolling at its finest. There would be no discussion just baiting insults.

  • hottlanta

    Dating/marrying white men ain't nothing new for black women. We been doing that for years.

  • Marlika

    She’s on her way.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why is it that black women get so criticized when marrying out when black men do not though? It's like the strangest double standard.

  • hottlanta

    Black women can't never win. if she never got married she would be accused of being gay or my favorite phrase "can't keep a man". Had she never had a baby folks would be saying "she betta hurry up her clock is ticking, etc, etc." Now that she is married , folks saying "why" or she want be married long I give it 2 years". DAYUM!!!!! Enuf is enuf for people all up in other folks business.

  • Indies beauty

    Yes Serena come through with princess Olympia. She looks amazing here.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Noooooooooo!!!! No more blonde hair on black women in 2018!

  • Trace da Ace

    WOW!! I have been reading all of these comments and I am so surprised at the hate!!!! Who cares if her baby is bi-racial!!! Who cares if she married a white man.....I mean damn, black folks always try to find a way to beat down other black folks, and for what??? Lets state facts: 1. she married a MAN who loves her and treats her like she wants/deserves to be treated. 2. TOGETHER, they created a beautiful, healthy baby girl. 3. SHE IS HAPPY, PERIOD. Why can't folks be happy for that? Why is it a race thing all the damn time??? Why can't we say: Damn that is a beautiful picture of mother and child???? Obviously, she gives ZERO fuks about what others think about how she lives her life. Its 2018 yall!!! Stop always finding a reason to be negative about somebody's life choices!!!!

  • hottlanta

    I will be sending her a bouquet of Pro Flowers every month. I tell men all the time, just like you want something younger and firmer as you get older. Women like something younger and firmer as well when we get older as well..

  • Indies beauty

    You talk about blacks tearing other blacks down but you called a group of black men with dreads a Monkey. The hypocrisy of it all.

  • hottlanta

    Everyone owns the black woman relationship but her. That is why we have to fight to keep folks outta our business and love the way we want to love. Just like black folks ragging Halle for her 3 marriages and white folks call Liz Taylor a genius after her 8 marriages. You don't see them saying Liz Taylor can't keep a man, none of that mess.

  • CUTE KID!

    Serena finally looks great on this cover!

  • mona

    Gorgeous #blackgirlmajic

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    This is a nice cover photo.

  • Trace da Ace

    and yes, I did.

  • yvette46

    This women wanted a light baby sooo bad....

  • Indies beauty

    Kudos

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes! I've never heard Liz Taylor criticized for marrying over and over in fact it added to her appeal, like she was just so irresistible and desireable. Never was she called crazy or labeled a woman that can't keep a man. Nothing against Liz Taylor and her legacy but that double standard is there you're right.

  • Yoni7

    Lissen! LOL I swear folks don't know what they be putting out in the universe. Then be crying when the baby cute.......but sick. Almighty forbid.

  • Ebony Starr

    Yes! I guess they think that young women are saying I can't wait to get an old saggy man, who talks about taking his pressure medicine!

  • hottlanta

    Liz got the money/diamonds and outlived all of them.The never even call Katherine Hepburn a skank for dating Spencer Tracy while he was married. He even died in her kitchen and the wife had to come and claim the body. Yet they rag Alica/Gabby as if they married their man. They taking it kinna personal.

  • You Could Never

    God bless you.

  • Yoni7

    Now see. LOL

  • Yoni7

    And Jackie Long.

  • Ebony Starr

    Agreed!

  • Yoni7

    See. They wouldn't be around mine with that dumb sh!t.

  • You Could Never

    Folks Better get their life together when talking to one person here. Yoni. I will ride for others. But you will feel this wrath over Yoni. She bothers no one. MsHarlem either. Not today.

  • You Could Never

    Sheer ignorance

  • Yoni7

    Nor eva! Now let's get off that chick's hermaphrodite cl!t. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • nomika brown

    Agreed

  • Yoni7

    Allait!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    ? You have got to be kidding me. I have astronomical beauty standards, because I find an average looking white man unattractive? I've seen better looking white men , in real life.

    Your standards must be really low or non existent.
    Alexis sr. is ugly to me. He isn't my cup of tea. I like men with good bone structure, striking features, a chin, masculine features etc. He has none of those so he's unattractive in my eyes.

    Here's a pic of Alexis sr. Vs a man that has facial features that I find appealing. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5cef6f5bdff75e1771498ba43e1612b12fe59ce9f9b9de0871f79355d1aeae4d.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/00001725d42a9d1d32e9d60144af3ecf5a33cc0e155db901b3029c55a3edcf6a.jpg

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    She married a white man with less money than her, who's also unattractive. Some of the black dudes she dated were better looking and some had longer money. Why couldn't she have found a white man to match her fly? That's all I'm saying. She didn't have to settle for another black girls scraps. Research how her and Alexis got together. No one said she had to wait forever, but she didn't have to settle either.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Adorable. Serena is glowing.

  • Indies beauty

    Lol I see a mess.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Nope, he's not "ugly" he's the average guy. You and I are two different people so yes our views will differ but by most of society standards he's a regular dude.

  • Yoni7

    Whatchu say.....ISSA HYPOCRITE! LOL

  • hottlanta

    So the women who kissed and actually had sex with FLav Fla didn't know their worth for letting someone that ugly have sex with them.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Did not know that tea on Katherine Hepburn....

  • Indies beauty

    Lol lmao I got to keep it cute.

  • Ni Ni

    I hope you have good genes lol.

  • Ni Ni

    I thought it was a rumour, Idk.

  • Luv Pitties

    They said it on Queens Court last night maybe it is a rumor, the other night I read she has a new album called Deadwood and it's supposedly a heartbreak album so who knows

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    He's ugly too. I wouldn't sleep with him.

  • You Could Never

    Together openly in Hollywood for decades. He refused to divorce his wife. Think him or wife were Catholic. I'm talking him and Kate all at awards shows industry and private events openly

  • You Could Never
  • alex

    LOL. We shall see.

  • hottlanta

    Don't forget those loving words he was saying in the movie "Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner" and Katherine was crying he was actually saying them to her in real life. These housewives shows ain't got nothing on them.

  • KLo

    simply beautiful

  • KLo

    GFY

  • Passion

    Adorable little baby.

  • Dahl

    I still find her quite unattractive, but if she’s happy then good for her...

  • Dowoop

    It wasnt the white blonde more of a honey blonde (Brown).

  • cireewol

    With all the heat she's taken on her looks over hte years, kinda wonder if a mix baby wasn't exactly what she wanted! IJS

  • Smith Jane

    I think you meant another YT woman’s scrapes. But carry on lol

  • Smith Jane

    I wouldn’t say black men don’t get backlash. They get plenty. Especially after 95 when Waiting to Exhale came out and the infamous line she used when she was left for a yt woman lol... black men get plenty of backlash it’s black women who appear to be excluded. Because most black women sympathize over the lie that there are no good black man. When the truth is that black women are looking for some holy grail version of black men that just doesn’t exist. So they turn down blue collar working black men cause he ain’t in their tax bracket. Then they get mad when the black men in their bracket are unwilling to accept them at their (undesired) weight, their (undesured) attitude/emotional baggage etc., they create impossible standards and then act surprised when they end up single or with a non-black man

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Nah. He was with a black woman before marrying Serena.

  • Smith Jane

    That’s not true. I’ve seen unattractive black people make beautiful babies.

  • Smith Jane

    Hormones are a bitch

  • Smith Jane

    The video that vogue uploaded of Serena dancing... lawd... cringe inducing to say the least.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Right!!!!!

    To be continued......
    Just stay tuned to this here story!

  • 4 ever ????í? ?????

    This picture is so photoshopped. She doesn’t look anything like that in real life.

  • 4 ever ????í? ?????

    She’s not much

  • 4 ever ????í? ?????

    What does that mean?

  • dontgetblocked

    The baby isn't the focal point of the picture. Her boobs are. Not sure what they were trying to do with this picture. The baby looks like an accessory. I have to praise people like Halle Berry who NEVER use their children for publicity.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    All kindsssssss of adorable

  • Allihave2say

    I wish I could agree that Halle was the savior we think she is. I however believe she realized her daughter was "different" and not the Hollywood beauty type of child she thought would arise from her relations with the model. She hid her for that reason. Meanwhile her kids are popping up on the net including her small young son and she no longer screams for their privacy because it's now the only way she gets press.

  • i troll it like i see it

    No offense but I don't know what kind of ghetto, overweight, unhealthy low rent, loud and belligerent black women you know. I know a lot of quality women living quality lives who deserve quality men.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Well damn...

  • ALLMINE?

    the wigs are killing me..

  • JustB

    Idk who does her makeup or styling... it's just never right...I've worked wonders with a fraction of the money.... they almost mess her up on purpose... I mean what did they do to her freaking nose

  • Coco

    Would you have said “ she should find a man who matches her financially” if she had married common or any other black man? How black women in Hollywood are married to black men who are richer than them? I can only think of Beyoncé and she’s dealing with her own ish with JayZ.

  • Coco

    ? ?

  • Coco

    Chile! The same people who are calling her ugly, are also complaining than her baby doesn’t look like her the next second. Weird.

  • Jethro

    Serena's publicity is her stellar tennis career and the celebration of it. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Congratulations Lil Sis on each new stage of life you enter with full knowledge of all the obstacles that were tossed in your path.

  • Youngblood

    Now her baby is sooooooooo cute,thank god after seeing Kevin hart and ice tee ugly a$$ kids I was like dam...

  • Angelique Wiliams

    Something about the pose is not right or off. IDK it's like they said "Uhmmm o.k. somebody bring in the baby" ..
