Serena Williams has officially welcomed her second bb into the world! The tennis star took to TikTok earlier today to make the exciting announcement via a sweet vid that features herself along with husband Alexis Ohanian and the couple’s first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., gathered together for a moment before Serena exits the frame and returns with her new bundle of joy. The minute-long video then ends with a number of Polaroids of the family’s special moment that maaaay or may not make you beyond emotional. 🥺❤️

“Welcome my beautiful angel,” Serena captioned the touching tribute, which was set to the song “Beautiful” by Bazzi.

Separately, Alexis made his own announcement, which revealed the baby’s name: Adira River Ohanian. “I’m grateful to report our house is teaming with love: a happy & healthy newborn girl and happy & healthy mama. Feeling grateful. @serenawilliams you’ve now given me another incomparable gift—you’re the GMOAT,” gushed the Reddit co-founder, in part.

However, the TikTok and Insta posts proved to be just two of the many iconic ways in which the couple celebrated the arrival of their second daughter. Earlier this month, Serena and Alexis revealed the baby’s sex via a totally-not-casual drone display at their home alongside friends and family. In the YouTube vid that the athlete posted of the reveal, she expressed that she was really hoping for a girl and that she was, “a little nervous because I don’t have any contingency plan if it turns out to be a boy.” Whelp, consider her wish granted!

Alexis wound up pranking Serena by ordering a yellow cake and admitted to the camera, “I’m doing this because I want to troll her and Olympia into thinking that this is the reveal of Jelly Bean. She will cut into this cake, probably be disappointed, and hopefully, hopefully, appreciate my troll. But we’ll see. I don’t know if she’s gonna be a professional about it. She might see this cake come out, roll her eyes and say ‘This guy had one job and he gave me a goddamn cake gender reveal.’ But we’ll see. There’s a reveal after the reveal.”

The tennis star totally took the joke in stride and even hilariously pretended to shove her slice of cake onto Alexis’ face. The entrepreneur then said, “We are actually going to reveal Jelly Bean’s sex. The way we’re going to do it though is with a little style and some spectacular lights.” And by “a little style,” Alexis meant a full-on drone display in the sky that spelled out “GIRL!”

Oh, and let’s not even mention the *chef’s kiss* way the husband-and-wife duo made their most recent pregnancy announcement back in May 2023: at the freakin’ Met Gala! While on the red carpet at the lavish fundraiser, Serena told the Vogue livestream, “There’s three of us here,” which was a sweet nod to the couple’s newest addition.

‘Kay, I literally couldn’t be more obsessed with this family if I tried. 😭❤️
