Sept. 13 (UPI) -- New mom Serena Williams is giving fans a first glimpse of daughter Alexis Olympia.

The 35-year-old tennis pro introduced her daughter Wednesday on Instagram after welcoming the infant with fiancé and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

"Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.," she captioned a photo of a sweet moment with her baby girl.

Williams also shared a series of posts in a video on her website. The video follows Williams throughout her journey to becoming a mom, including a clip of the star leaving the hospital with baby Alexis.

"So we're leaving the hospital after six, seven days? It's been a long time," the athlete says in the clip. "We had a lot of complications, but look who we got! We got a baby girl."

Williams gave birth Friday, Sept. 1, after announcing her pregnancy in April. She said in an interview with The Telegraph prior to Alexis' birth that she's already anticipating her return to tennis.

"I am looking forward to becoming a mother and coming back to the courts already," the tennis pro shared. "I'm always thinking about what's next: the next victory, the next trophy."
