Serena Williams has welcomed her second daughter with husband Alexis Ohanian as she shared the first glimpse of her newborn in a video with her family.

In the post which she captioned “Welcome my beautiful angel,” Williams posted the video on TikTok that shows her, Ohanian and their four-year-old daughter Olympia embracing the newborn.

“I’m grateful to report our house is teaming with love: a happy & healthy newborn girl and happy & healthy mama. Feeling grateful,” her husband Ohanian also posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The baby’s full name is Adira River Ohanian – a Hebrew name which means ‘strong, noble, powerful’

Serena Williams had shared the announcement that she had become pregnant for the second time just before the Met Gala in May.

They became engaged in December of 2016, and they welcomed daughter Olympia the following September.

In the video, Serena is seen looking radiant in a pink dress in honour of her new daughter as she walks over to Alexis and kisses him.

Olympia, also in pink, walks over to join her parents, who kiss her, before Serena indicates she has forgotten something.

The star then walks back into frame cradling the couple’s newborn daughter as the family celebrate their second child.
