Twenty-three-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams unveiled her newborn daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in posts made to social media on Wednesday. Video covering the entire course of Williams’ pregnancy — including when she won the Australian Open while eight weeks pregnant — was shared on YouTube by baby Alexis’s father and namesake, Alexis Ohanian, a co-founder of Reddit and Williams’ fiance. In the video, Williams, 35, can be seen holding her new baby, saying, “We had a lot of complications, but look what we’ve got.”

Even while pregnant, Williams had managed to keep busy by fighting for equal pay, raising awareness about domestic abuse, and by posing nude for the cover of Vanity Fair. Williams has said that she hopes to return to the tennis court as soon as January 2018.
