Serena Williams shares her surprising baby name choice


 

New parents Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian introduced their baby girl to the world today in an emotional YouTube video.

“So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days,” Serena reveals in the video.

“It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl!”

The tennis champion and her fiance also shared their daughter’s name pick – Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

That’s right, their baby girl is named after her dad!

I know plenty of sons given the same name as their father, but I haven’t come across any girls who share the same name as their dad. The closest example I can think of is celebrity cook Nigella Lawson, who’s named after her politician father, Nigel Lawson.

Serena’s middle name pick is a little more straightforward. I think it’s likely to be a nod to her Olympic tennis success – the name Olympia comes from Mount Olympus in Greece, home to the Olympic games.
