Serena Williams and Daughter Alexis Olympia Shine in Matching Princess Dresses in a Sweet Photo

 ‘She’s got my back already. And I’ll always have hers,’ tennis star says in caption

Serena Williams has shared a sweet photograph on Instagram of her and her daughter wearing matching princess dresses, stating in the caption that she will “always” have the two-year-old’s back.

In the image, the 23-time Grand Slam singles winner is crouching on the ground, wearing a fuchsia gown that appears to be the one worn by Disney princess Aurora in the 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty.

Her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, is wearing a dress of the same colour with a slightly different design, helping her mother fasten the back of her dress.

“She’s got my back already,” Williams wrote in the caption, referencing her daughter’s helping hand. “And I’ll always have hers,” the 38-year-old added.

The tennis star’s post was inundated with comments from her followers, many of whom commented on how “cute” the picture of the mother-daughter duo was.

“I miss her,” wrote Williams’ sister and fellow tennis player Venus Williams.

“So sweet!” commented Beyoncé’s mother Tina Lawson.

Another person referred to Williams and Olympia as “best buds”, writing: “Princess and Queen right there”.

“You are so strong and inspiring and I’m glad you are a mother raising a daughter to follow in your footsteps,” someone else said.

This isn’t the first time Williams and her daughter have thrown on their princess-inspired clothes to amuse themselves during lockdown.

In June, Williams, who is married to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, shared a video on Instagram of her and Olympia dancing and singing to the opening song of the 1991 animated Disney film Beauty and the Beast while wearing Belle’s famous yellow ballgown.

“Keeping busy,” the tennis player wrote in the caption.
