Serena Williams is serving up parenting tricks!
Ever since the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian who she shares with Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian Sr, she has been a fountain of knowledge on all things parenting. The tennis icon has now found the best way to enjoy rest while keeping your kid occupied.
Serena Williams Reveals Best Kept Parenting Tip
To the delight of her followers, the star loves to celebrate her baby girl in heartwarming posts via her Instagram. This time she’s letting parents in on a trick to keep their little ones occupied happily. The tennis icon posted on her Instagram story a video of herself and Olympia sitting on the floor with feet touching.
The light-hearted video captioned “I got tired of running around, so I taught her this game, and she loves it,” showed the five-year-old w indeed mesmerized by playing a game of touching their toes and saying words taught by her mother. She seemed very preoccupied with making up her own words for the game.
The mother-daughter duo also find ways to have fun outside the house that does not require running around, as reported by The Blast. The 40-year-old posted an adorable picture on Instagram enjoying a date night in New York.
They seemed to be having a fantastic time all by themselves with full bellies, evidenced by the near-empty plates on their table. The picture featured the cute duo seated at a table, looking with total concentration into the screen of a mobile device, probably playing a game or watching something interesting.
The athlete donned a lemon green cardigan which covered both of them on top of a black camisole. At the same time, her cute date wore a little white blouse. She captioned the post, “NY Date nights @olympiaohanian,” and as expected, her followers left thousands of likes and commented on how cute they looked.
Some advised Williams to enjoy the early years with her mini-me, while others praised her mothering skills. The proud mother also recently shared a clip of her offspring showing off her inherited sportsmanship skills, playing with the Angel City FC.
The now-removed video showed the budding sportsperson kicking a ball around the field with some adults around her. While her first attempt at a goal was unsuccessful, she tried again after receiving a little encouragement from her father.
This time she scored a goal and received cheers from nearby viewers. The post received remarks concerning her great “footwork” and acknowledged her budding potential as an athlete.
The Mother-Of-One Lands New Sports Role
Williams might have retired from the game of tennis, but her sportsmanship days seem far from over, as reported by The Blast. In an Instagram post, Williams recounted how her daughter enjoys soccer and began her practice recently.
She added that she was there to show support and relax but ended up joining her daughter in getting dirty. The 40-year-old’s excitement was shown in the video as she explained her new role while attending the soccer practice days ago. The caption read:
“True story: I showed up to Olympia’s first soccer practice. And she was so nervous she would NOT leave my side. So they needed volunteers to be assistant coaches. So now, I am an assistant coach (when I can) and clearly I was not prepared.”
Although she was drenched in sweat, she could not but flex by noting the type of car she took to the venue, which she said was not a minivan. Ending the caption with “Modern day soccer mom. Maybe I’ll call up @weareangelcity.”
The budding soccer star’s dad was also present and posted a picture on his Instagram featuring the father-daughter duo side by side at the same age, dressed in almost identical soccer gear.
In the caption, he wrote: “Today was the first day of soccer practice for @olympianohanian just a few decades later for me. Owning @weareangelcity was her destiny.” The proud parents seem to be gearing up for new sports records in the family as their daughter might have inherited some of her mother’s pro-athlete genes.
