Serena Williams has given birth to a girl posted Tuesday on Instagram almost exactly one year after his last match as a tennis star.
Adira River Ohanian is the second child, and second daughter, of Williams, 41, and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. The first, Olympia, was born in 2017.
Williams, who won 23 Grand Slam singles titles during a career that transcended her sport, revealed at the Met Gala in May that she was pregnant.
When she told the world in August 2022 that she was preparing to bring her playing career to a close, Williams cited a desire to grow her family as one of the main reasons for stepping away from tennis.
“Believe me,” Williams wrote last year in an essay for Vogue magazine, “I never wanted to have to choose between tennis and a family. I do not think it's fair. If I were a man, I wouldn't be writing this because I would be playing and winning while my wife did the physical work of expanding our family."
The 2022 US Open was his last tournament. She reached the third round in New York by beating second seed Anett Kontaveit before losing to Ajla Tomljanovic on September 3.
