Serena Williams‘ daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., is honing her soccer skills for the next level!
The adorable baby girl of the Tennis star and Alexis Ohanian Sr., who seems to have had a burst in her growth, often gives an update on her life through her social media pages. She did so again when she made her celebrity parents proud on a pitch on Monday, December 12.
Fans Cannot Believe How Grown Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Appears In New Pics
Williams and Alexis have often gushed about the things that Olympia enjoys, from baking to playing the piano and a little bit of tennis. The young girl herself has shown the stuff she is made of, especially when it comes to soccer.
The five-year-old reminded fans of her prowess — and unexpected growth spurt — in the two news pics of her on a soccer field posted to her social media. The first Instagram image featured Olympia proudly standing with one foot on top of a ball and flexing her muscles with a grin. The next slide was a blurry view of the girl caught in a goalie-like pose.
Olympia is dressed in a black Angel City Football Club uniform with matching knee-high socks and a pair of yellow Nike cleats. Along with the 57k+ likes the post received, fans trooped into the comment section to praise the youngest co-owner in professional sports.
While one person gushed that she was “the cutest,” a second called her “an adorable striker in the making.” “our beautiful girl already showcasing soccer skills,” a third fan commented as a fourth person referred to Olympia as a “natural athlete.”
Hundreds of others just wanted to know when she became “all grown up.” This is a question that has probably popped up in Williams’ DMs after she resposted the shot on her Instagram Story with the caption, “Beast mode.”
Olympia previously showed off her skills in an Instagram reel that her mother reposted to her Instagram Story in August. A click on the clip revealed the then four-year-old kicking a soccer ball around a field with adults surrounding her on the field and in the sidelines.
When the ball did not enter the net when she kicked it, her dad encouraged her to make a second attempt. That next try was the win she needed as the ball found the net, causing a celebratory cheer from onlookers.
The sweet clip, which was initially posted on Olympia’s Instagram page, has garnered thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from fans. One person commented, “Awww, baby Olympia’s getting so big! Look at her flexin her skills! She scored on her papa wow.”
Another fan promised, “Gonna be on the sidelines for her soon [fire emoji],” while a third claimed, “She’s a champion. Watch those legs go and that back kick.” Other viewers praised her parents for letting her play the sports she loved and motivated the baby girl to keep working on her “game” and “talent.”

The Blast observed in September that even though Williams had retired from playing tennis professionally, she was still very involved with the world of sports. Per the article, the mother-of-one had a unique, unexpected experience when she showed up to support her daughter during her first soccer practice.
The tennis legend took to Instagram to share a video explaining how she earned a new role during the event underneath. A sweaty Williams told viewers, “first day as a soccer mom, but I decided not to use the minivan for this.” She wrote in the caption:
“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.”
She finished the caption by calling herself a “Modern day soccer mom,” with a joke that she would probably call up Angel City — which her toddler co-owns. Olympia earned the boss position after her parents provided her with a stake in the Los Angeles-based women’s soccer team after her dad became their lead investor two years ago.
The tech entrepreneur has since divulged that his reason for the move was to give his daughter a “front-row seat” to the upcoming soccer revolution.
