Serena Williams and her baby girl, Alexis Olympia, are Vogue’s cover stars for the magazine’s February issue.
“This is a moment I will never forget,” the tennis champion tweeted to her followers on Wednesday after the cover was revealed.
Check out highlights and spread from her family, which also features her husband, internet entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian, Sr., below:
On how her daughter has changed her goals and future: “To be honest, there’s something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom. But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams. I’m well aware of the record books, unfortunately. It’s not a secret that I have my sights on 25.”
On some of the pitfalls of motherhood: “Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can’t do this. It’s that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that’s just who I am. No one talks about the low moments—the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry. I’ve broken down I don’t know how many times.”
