It was the year 2017. Serena Williams was all set to play at the Australian Open. However, before the tournament began, she received one of the best news of her life. The former World Number 1 found that she is soon going to become a mother. Serena went on to play in the year-opening Grand Slam tournament. She defeated her elder sister, Venus Williams, in the final of that tournament to clinch her 23rd Grand Slam title.
Later that year, she tied the knot with Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian and gave birth to her daughter, Olympia. Like her mother, four-year-old Olympia is a social media star and never shies away from the camera. Recently, Alexis had a surprise for his daughter.

Alexis took to Twitter to display the gift for his daughter, Olympia. Sharing a picture of the KEX chocolate bar, he said, “I was gifted a giant chocolate bar from a carnival game last night by @norabavey1 and had to get creative packing it for @OlympiaOhanian she’ll love it tho.”
Olympia has a close-knit bond with her parents and often shares adorable moments with them. Earlier this year, Alexis heaped praise on his daughter, saying, “I’m 39 today. Waking up with this little paleontologist was the best birthday gift I could’ve asked for.”

Further, he added, “She will be my legacy — not founding @Reddit @Initialized, or even @sevensevensix (despite how ambitious our goals are) — making her proud is the lens through which I build.”
