Serena Williams has been busy in the kitchen – even if she’s been making the most of microwave modern convenience. The 38-year-old tennis superstar also seemed to have 2-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in mind during her most recent Instagram share – the former World no. 1 has been making headlines as she quarantines with her family, having admitted to “side-eyeing” Olympia because she coughed last month.
Serena was in Disney princess mode on Wednesday night. Her video came straight from the kitchen, and it was Snow White-themed.
Serena’s video (seen below) showed her home and in the kitchen. The mom of one was standing at her kitchen counter and backed by a mega chrome fridge and a microwave.
The Disney wardrobe was immediately visible. Serena was rocking a Snow White dress in buttercup-yellow, blue, and red, heard saying:
“Hello, I’m back.”
The pie being prepared didn’t make it to a traditional oven setting, with Serena opting to nuke it as she also turned around while speaking in a singing voice.
“Speaking of backs, my dress doesn’t fit in the back,” the star added, clearly in humor mode as the camera took in an unzipped back.
Engagement was high on this update, with the video currently sitting at over 912,000 views. A like quickly came in from sister Venus Williams, with supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio leaving Serena a string of alien emoji.
Instagram was absolutely loving it.
“This girl has lost her mind LOL” was one of the most popular comments.
“I think we’re been cooped up for too long,” one fan wrote, clearly referring to COVID-19.
“It’s great to see you having fun and so relaxed for a change,” another said.
Serena has stayed honest amid the pandemic, also being one of the first major faces to announce she was going into “solitude.” Videos from the star have seen her address her anxiety while in quarantine.
“Now I’ve been social distancing for actually a really long time, for probably two weeks now, and every little thing makes me crazy. And by anxiety I mean I’m just on edge. Any time anyone sneezes around me or coughs I get crazy. I don’t hang out with anyone, and when I say anyone I mean my daughter,” she said in March.
“She coughed, I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that ‘angry Serena’ and then I got sad. I was like, ‘Is she ok? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?’ I just don’t know what to do, so instead of being relaxed I’m really under a ton of stress,” Serena continued.
The 23-time Gland Slam winner has, however, been keeping her fitness up, sharing home workout videos, with her yoga pants stretching video sitting at over 860,000 views.
