Evidently, Serena Williams wants to create a doubles team that can rival her and older sister Venus's joint success. In a new interview, the tennis pro shared that she's hoping she and husband Alexis Ohanian can give six-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia a younger sibling sometime in the near future.
"I definitely want two [kids], God willing," Williams told Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday. "But right now, I want tennis as well. So, I'm going to wait and see what happens."
The new mom spoke further about finding that elusive balance of work and home, a task made easier by splitting the work with Reddit co-founder Ohanian, whom she married in New Orleans in November. "Working motherhood is real. It's so real. But I have my priorities and Olympia is that. And Alexis works all the time as well. He's not even here right now, he's working on his new VC fund," Williams said. "But I'm never a day without Olympia. She's my priority, and every day I need to be home with her. I don't wanna miss any moments with her." And Williams, who is already back on the court after giving birth in September, isn't making this juggling act any easier on herself: "It's definitely not easy," she said. "I have this undying drive to be the best that I can be. Whether it's [being] a mom or playing tennis or doing my designing, I just want to do the best that I can."
Despite the increased pressure she's feeling, though, Williams has no regrets about becoming a mom—especially when she's got Alexis Jr.'s "toothless smile" to look at every day. "It's been amazing," she said. "I've always wanted to be a mom, but I never seemed to have time with my career. Then, it just happened, and I was like, 'I don't know.' I just dove right in." She added, "It's so natural for me. I love it. I love her so much. We have a great little family going on."
