Serena Williams has proven that she is superwoman after she revealed her amazing post-baby body, just two weeks after giving birth to her first child.
Her snapback game has reminded us of what an extraordinary athlete she is as she managed to maintain her fitness regime during her pregnancy, and it looks like she was able to stay in shape after finally welcoming her daughter Alexis into the world.
The tennis champion, who is a fan of posting on Snapchat, shared a mirror selfie of herself in a top and denim shorts that could’ve easily been mistaken for a throwback Thursday photo.
The Olympian, who is engaged to Reddit Alexis Ohanian, wrote: ‘Back in my jeans shorts 2 weeks…’
Two weeks after giving birth is impressive – but let’s remember that Serena is Serena and this should be expected from a woman who has been ranked number one tennis player in the world on eight occasions.
Just hours before, the 35-year-old posted the cutest picture of her daughter wearing a babygrow which read: ‘Smart and strong like my mama’.
On Monday, Serena shared a heartwarming first picture in which she was cuddling her newborn daughter who was born on September 1.
In the pic, Serena, 35, held the cutie – who has quite the head of hair – with the caption reading: ‘Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories.’
And her Instagram story, plus a video shared to Serena’s official website, showed Alexis’s journey into the world.
Beginning at Serena’s baby scan, we saw selfies of the athlete with a growing bump, home video Snapchats of her tummy moving, all culminating in the baby’s birth.
Serena hinted at a difficult birth, saying: ‘We had a lot of complications, but look who we got!’
She added that she had spent six days in the hospital.
The end of the video announced her daughter’s name, and that she weighed 6lbs 14oz.
And, amazingly, she’s listed as having won one Grand Slam title, seeing as her mum was pregnant during the Australian Open.
A host of celebs wished Serena congratulations upon hearing the news of her daughter’s birth, including bestie Beyonce, who welcomed twins Sir and Rumi earlier this year.
Serena accidentally revealed she was pregnant after she made public a Snapchat that showed her tummy at 20 weeks.
The star became engaged to Reddit co-founder Ohanian last December.
