Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian welcomes baby girl; she had penned an emotional note before her arrival


She has won double figure grand slams in tennis, but, here comes her first slam in “maternal open”. Serena Williams will be serving up a lot of love to her newborn baby.

The tennis pro welcomed a baby girl on Friday — in the middle of the U.S. Open — at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach with fiancé Alexis Ohanian.

“Tennis star Serena Williams gives birth to a baby girl weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. Mom and baby doing well,” WPBF-25 news producer Chris Shepherd announced on Twitter, citing a source at the hospital.

The new mom was induced on Thursday night, according to local station CBS 12.

The tennis champ posted an emotional note to her unborn baby on Monday morning, revealing deep sentiments about how her pregnancy has taught her a lot about herself.

“My dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can’t wait to meet you. I can’t wait for you to join the players box next year,” she wrote next to a photo of herself in a swimsuit revealing a baby bump.

Viva Naija says huge congrats to them both, no, them trio!
