Jersey Girl Sports fam Serena is giving us all kinds of mommy magic as she and her beautiful baby girl Alexis Olympia will grace the cover of Vogue.
Some of the pics are already out, and while we love Serena, baby Alexis is just too darn cute!
In the article Serena talks about her marriage, and thoughts of being a full-time mom–but she still wants to win more Grand Slams first.
To be honest, there’s something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom,” she says. Reddit, the news aggregator of which Alexis is a cofounder, is based there, and they’ve just found a house in Silicon Valley. “But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams. I’m well aware of the record books, unfortunately. It’s not a secret that I have my sights on 25.” She means 25 Grand Slam victories, which would surpass the record of 24 held by the Australian tennis legend Margaret Court and make her the undisputed greatest of all time.
And actually, I think having a baby might help. When I’m too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born. Knowing I’ve got this beautiful baby to go home to makes me feel like I don’t have to play another match. I don’t need the money or the titles or the prestige. I want them, but I don’t need them. That’s a different feeling for me.”
I’m loving all of this…but I’m ready to see Serena take the court!
