The 37-year-old tennis pro took to Instagram on Wednesday to gush over her 1-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia, whom she shares with her husband, Alexis Ohanian. Wearing a pink pair of sparkly shoes and a white tutu -- reminiscent of her mom's U.S. Open outfit -- Olympia looks inquisitive as she walks a hallway holding a tennis ball.
"I will always protect you. I will always stand up for you. I will always guide you. I will always be with you you," Williams captioned the adorable pic. "I was put here to be your mom. I love you like nothing I’ve ever loved before. I thank Jehovah everyday for you."
"Working motherhood is real. It's so real. But I have my priorities and Olympia is that," she shared. "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."
