Serena Williams and baby

Serena Williams, 35, shut down rumors that she paid a surrogate to deliver her and Reddit founder Alexis Kerry Ohanian's baby girl named Alexis Olympia Ohaniah.

Serena Williams and baby

Most celebrities of Serena's caliber wait at least a month to introduce their newborns to the world. Serena still had the IV in her hand when she posted her first video of the newborn.

Expect to see A LOT more pics and videos of this privileged baby in the near future -- like later on today.

... but are you ready?

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Congrats on a healthy baby! Never really paid attention to Serena's man...strange looking fellow, not ugly just strange looking.

  • BloodBlood

    Girls can be Jr's? ?

  • Noirluv45

    I'm glad Serena showed her baby. So many of the celebrities hid their babies, and that's their choice, so I'm very surprised Serena let the world see her new precious bundle, and NO, I don't think it's because the baby is biracial.

  • Noirluv45

    Yeah, that threw me too.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She had nothing to fake pregnancy no altered body parts no manufactured career..andca natural birth...THIS IS BELEIVABLE! AND HER SNAP BACK IS GONNA BE INCREDIBLE!!

  • Roderick2011

    She looks just like her daddy.

    And stop calling Alex Serena's fiancé because they won't ever marry each other.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i have no hate or shade for this new mother. Babies are a blessing, and she's been blessed with a healthy beautiful child. God Bless!

  • T865!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • pure_rachet

    I forgot Ciara even had a baby.

  • Phillybruh

    Baby's not photo shoot ready yet.

  • pure_rachet

    Isn't Teyanna Taylor's daughter a Jr? Probably just not common to name daughters after their fathers but these dudes have very fem names...

  • SG

    Precious!! Sometimes I miss my baby being that small. Then I remember that I like to sleep.

  • Guest

    Congrats! Beautiful baby!

  • Renee26

    Different daddy...different lifestyle now

    I would love to see her precious face too

  • Renee26

    You drank your hateraide early this morning huh??

  • You Could Never

    Welp until they do or dont guess what he is? Her fiancé.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    What cutie pie, Congrats to both proud parents again.

  • Renee26

    I always thought Jr's had to have the FULL name...not just the first and last

  • You Could Never

    Yes. But I wish it would stop

  • Coy little wink

    Lawdd....she just made my ovaries rise from the dead ?

    I think she should pop another one right out he looks ready willing and able ?

  • T865!

    Russell stays taking photoshoots with Baby Future though ??

  • bhavana

    I think they're a perfect match. Their looks are on the same level. ?

  • bhavana

    She's a beautiful baby.

  • Ebony Starr

    Congratulations Serena, she is beautiful! Now it's time to get tennis racquets in both of your hands.

  • ???TheRider???

    I'm thinking the same thing. Teyana named her daughter Jr. I just don't get it.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Ahhhh she's a cutie

  • imright

    so its true 2 ugly ppl make a beautiful baby ???

  • Benjamin

    She's beautiful! I'm so happy for Serena.

  • ~~eb


  • Shawty

    Pretty little one

  • Roderick2011

    Yeah neither one of them seems to be into the other when they are together.

  • Ebony Starr

    Expect to see A LOT more pics and videos of this privileged baby in the near future — like later on today.
    I'm looking forward to it! Serena has a birthday coming up so she is probably planning a photo shoot.

  • Coco

    It seems like a new thing. I like it.

  • Coco

    I think most Jr have a different middle names from the Sr.

  • Yetunde

    Did anyone ever suspect her of using a surrogate?
    Anyway, congratulations to the Serena and her fiance.

  • Bam Bam Li

    Beautiful Baba! Glad she didn't have too many complications ????

  • Nina Ross

    Pretty little baby... congratulations!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Beautiful baby. She looks healthy and loved.

  • Guess Who

    She finally got the mixed child she has always wanted.....

  • Mischelle

    Exactly, there was no denying she was pregnant AT ALL

  • You Could Never

    Im not gonna say THAT. But folks kill me with we are emasculating our men and then turn around and masculate the girls by naming them Jr. It makes no damn sense to me.

  • Justlooknout

    Look at had to read it Thrice.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Beautiful Blessing ??????

  • Yardgirl

    Congrats!! I don't blame her for posting the photo right away, the rumors swirl if people don't see evidence of a birth immediately. She could show a photo with the cord still attached and someone will say "fake" Le sigh.

  • stav

    Hopefully they marry(with an ironclad prenup)! Otherwise he may pull the same thing as Halle Berry's unwed childs dad, and try to take her to the cleaners with child support. She definitely has more money!


    Lol he does have a certain thirsty appeal.


    she seems like she might like the attention.

  • Li

    I agree. She's smart, she knows what to do. The pre-nup is probably holding up the marriage....she's gone through several men....there may not be a marriage.

  • IamAllnatural

    Why do they name the girls after the fathers, I don't get it.

  • stav


  • IamAllnatural

    Congrats on a healthy, beautiful baby girl.


    ? well not shocking that's how those Far East cultures roll...

  • bashi

    Baby look like her only light skin

  • bemetoo

    thats right serena do ya thing... but doesnt it feel like she hag this baby in 4 months beyonce and ciara pregnancy felt like they both were pregnant for 15 months

  • bemetoo

    only half yt...i wonder if her dude has a big dack becauseserena has a strong musclle ass

  • Ms.Vanilla

    No one ever suspected her of using a surrogate after that naked picture in Vanity Fair. Beautiful baby.

  • Ajavee

    Congrats Serena and Alexis! She is a beautiful baby;-)

  • Vonn
  • Look@m3

    You think people strategically have mixed babies?

  • free

    she was waiting for folk to start asking and nobody has.

  • Chicagowise

    Beautiful baby. To bad the kid was was born out of wedlock. If two people can't commit to one another, how are they going to commit to their child?

  • Passion

    What a baby doll, my only question is ....when did they start naming little girls Jr? Congrats!

  • Guess Who


  • disqus_TrCUDzOzuG

    I had a friend who's daughter was a Jr. She's close to 30 now.

  • disqus_TrCUDzOzuG

    I've seen 2 cute people with an ugly baby.

  • Look@m3

    I never really followed her love like like that but she has dated mostly black guys right? So you think she waited until she got a white guy to have a baby? I'm still trying to figure out why her an common didn't work out?

  • Yetunde

    Some people just like to cause trouble.

  • Look@m3

    I want to see her too! I bet she is a doll!

  • Look@m3

    Wow I have never seen a girl Jr before!! Not sure if I like that.....

    We blur the lines too much sometimes I think

  • bemetoo


  • TheOwley

    Brilliant baby naming there. Thankfully she didn't saddle her with a dumbass name. When the father is a billionaire and his first child is a girl, why should the benefits of being a junior go to a boy automatically. I think she's started a trend. But congrats to her. She is proud to be a mom and you just got to love her enthusiasm during the pregnancy.

  • Karen Brady

    Awww. precious.. I want to hold her.

  • Karen Brady

    I know you didn't mean this to be funny but I am chuckling nonetheless. You're always straight with it Chicagowise :-).

  • Karen Brady


  • SandraRose

    She is not junior. The middle names are different.

  • KLo


  • monique

    Teyana Taylor also named her daughter Iman Jr.

  • Chicagowise

    I'm old fashioned... like a TV with no remote or a phone with no caller ID. ?

  • Clopretty

    omgggg the baby is soooo adorable!! so happy for her.

  • Desiree Edwards

    great mixture of both parents

  • Kirenee


  • TheOwley

    I thought about that too as soon as I commented. I think it's a great.

  • my view

    but he's a billionaire

  • Smith Jane

    Ask the 3+million blackr women that.

  • Look@m3

    From the daddy? Yeah but I was just speaking in terms of having "Jr" at the end of the last name(period). That's confusion and still blurring the lines in my opinion. Guess I don't get it just like I don't care for unisex names either...

  • stav

    He is not, he sold his company for 20 mill.

  • Nel

    She made sure to get herself a half white baby.. lol Serena, you're not low lol.. Cute baby though, hopefully she keeps her own looks.

  • Smith Jane

    Ikr that's how you know that sh-t is done out of spite

  • Chicagowise

    Black women aren't the only people having children out of wedlock. There seems to be a pervasive attitude that marriage is an inconsequential component of raising healthy, happy children. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Just Passing Through

    Alexis is only worth 9 million dollars. Serena is closer to billionaire status than he is. She worth 180 million. But ok.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yawn. She'll worship this kid, as will Foxy Brown. Black folks are color struck and most take a liking to the lighter skin and other traits not so common (light eyes, hair texture, etc).

  • my view

    unless you have access to his account hush......he's still closer to it then you

  • stav

    The post isn't about me clown, I stand by the facts! Own when you're wrong, and YOU ARE!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Aaawww Issa- ? ?.. babies are off limits and precious..nothing ELSE to see or SAY here.. carry on ?.hey ?'s ??

  • my view

    Clown would be you thinking you know what someone has in their bank account.....he still doesn't need to marry her for money fool

  • stav

    And you know this How? I didn't state he needed to marry for her money, if you can read. I stated she better protect herself because anything can happen , especially being as though she has more money, and he didn't marry her first. Ignorance and stupidity is not bliss! Reading comprehension is a virtue.

  • Solstice

    Hell naw!! ? This is first I've heard of Serena using a surrogate…Sandra Mae knows she's a trip lol

  • Cocoa Rose

    They do the same in Europe. Look it up. Many European countries provide free childcare, medical care, and a whole other host of social benefits to offset their declining population.

  • justsayin

    Awwwshe's beautiful

  • FallenOne

    lets see janet Jackson post some post labor pics

  • OP2

    BS. That lady spent [or wasted] years of her life dating brothas that simply two-timed or dogged her. They could have acted like real men and put a ring on it & she would've been equally happy in admiring her new baby from a brotha just like her parents loved and admired them.

    Plenty of Black women and men have darker complexion children and love them to pieces. -those are also the ones who also tend to raise their children well with hopes and dreams and guide them towards college or such to become positive members of society rather than another nuisance.

    LOL. But don't let a man other a Black come along who also happens to be educated with self-made wealth from creating a company and put a ring on it and not run from the responsibility of creating a is such an embarrassment to self-haters that they have focus on something as superficial as a skin color.

    -bottomline is the world knows that is the child of two great-Greats because the baby is named after her father.

  • NicoleZee

    I'm not sure if that's true. There are some genuine people that just happen to fall in love with someone of another race and procreate with them. My son is mixed, I honestly had no idea whatsoever that I would get pregnant after dealing with fertility issues. Trust me, if I could have chosen a father for my child, I would NOT have chosen the one I have!!! Sometimes things just happen. God blesses people with miracles everyday, glad He saw fit to bless me with my little munchkin :)!!!

  • NicoleZee

    I just believe every child should have their own individual sensible name. If you can't come up with a decent name, then go traditional or choose a theme like a name from a different country. My first name is from a different country and so is my son's. But I wish this centuries old trend of naming children after parents and giving them ridiculous names would end, please!!!

  • NicoleZee

    Pretty baby, wish she had her own name though :(.

  • Gamer?? Chick


  • TheOwley

    People so throw the b word around, but I admit not knowing his exact net worth. He's as much a billionaire as the Carters are.
