Serena Williams’ daughter Alexis Olympia instructs her on what to wear every day.

The tennis ace revealed that the two-year-old, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian, not only has an eye for fashion, but will dress her mother and father on a daily basis.

“She’ll set up before bed what we need to wear in the morning,” the 38-year-old told People. “And she says, ‘Blue shirt, blue shirt, blue shirt.’ And then she goes, ‘Mama wear this or these shoes’… She always tells me to (wear) heels. She’s currently wearing heels.”

The Grand Slam winner also shared that her daughter insists on matching with her sports star mum almost every day, and their coordinating outfits are “a team effort”.

“We even have jammies (pyjamas). So now if she sees me in something, and she has the same thing, she immediately wants to change so we’re twins,” she added.

However, she’s adamant that while the tot has unlimited access to her clothes and shoes, Alexis Olympia won’t be getting her hands on her accessories just yet.

“If something happens to me, she can have all my jewellery, but until then, no,” Serena quipped.

She recently launched her namesake jewellery brand’s new Unstoppable capsule collection, a necklace and bracelet inspired by her glittering career, and all net proceeds will go the Opportunity Fund’s Small Business Relief Fund to support Black-owned businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Serena Williams has twinned with her daughter Alexis Olympia in matching Disney princess dresses for a sweet lockdown singalong.

The tennis ace is keeping busy with her two-year-old daughter while self-isolating at home in Beverly Hills with her husband Alexis Ohanian during the coronavirus outbreak, and on Thursday, she shared the adorable moment in a video on Instagram.

Serena and Alexis can be seen in the clip singing along to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast soundtrack while wearing matching yellow dresses like that worn by the character of Belle in the 1991 animated movie.

“Keeping busy,” she captioned the video.

However, the Grand Slam champion’s older sister Venus Williams took to the comments section to poke fun at her sibling and she questioned why the 38-year-old was wearing a Belle dress.

“Gosh. I want a dress. love her so much!!!…but why is the mom also in a princess dress???” she quipped.

Serena’s famous friends including Lewis Hamilton, model Alessandra Ambrosio, and actress Ellen Pompeo also shared their love for the sweet video, with Oscar winner Halle Berry commenting: “Wow, my HEART.”

The sports star previously opened up about life in lockdown with her daughter and said that while she’s loving being at home, it’s becoming difficult to juggle her career commitments and family life.

“I kinda love being a full-time mom and not having the responsibilities to travel and play but now that I’m training again, it’s become a lot,” Serena told People. “I love to spend so much time with her, but it’s interesting.”

Serena Williams has unveiled a size-inclusive dress that she designed “for every body”.

The tennis ace shared a video on Instagram showing her wearing the $120 (£99) red Twist Front Dress from her eponymous clothing collection alongside six other women.

Serena, who is mother to daughter Alexis Olympia, explained that the confidence-boosting long-sleeved dress can be worn by women of every size, as she designed the garment to be fully inclusive.

“We’re having a red-hot summer over @serena. I designed the Twist Front Dress for everybody and every BODY,” the 37-year-old captioned the video.

“No one in the world looks exactly the same,” the Grand Slam winner says at the beginning of the clip. “We all are different people, we have different personalities, we have different traits. We all look different and we’ve got to bring our personalities out.”

She then asks the other women to share how they feel wearing her Twist Front Dress.

“I’m curvy, but feel confident in my curves,” one states, while another jokes: “I feel spicy like a jalapeno.”

The knee-length dress is also available in black, and in sizes XS to 3XL at serenawilliams.com.

Serena, who wed Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017, launched her eponymous label with a 12-piece capsule collection in May 2018. The sports star said the line was “inspired by femininity and strength” and explained that she had an ‘S’ embroidered into each of the garments to help women find their own ‘S’ word.

“My ‘S’ is strong and sure,” Williams said. “I have a really good friend of mine, who’s been through a lot and her ‘S’ word is ‘survivor.’ That really touched me. My mom’s ‘S’ word is ‘steadfast’ and boy, is she steadfast.”
