This has been one hell of a year for Serena Williams and it continues to get better. Go inside for deets about Nike honoring her with a building, plus entering the Australian Open three months after giving birth inside…
Just when she thought this year couldn’t get any better, it does.
Serena Williams became a first-time mom when she gave birth to her adorable daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September. Then, she married the love of her life Alexis Ohanian in New Orleans in November.
Now, she has two new big feats coming down the pipeline to top 2017 off as one of the best years of her life.
After gaining the title of mother and wife, the tennis superstar will now be gunning after another title. The 36-year-old has reportedly entered the 2018 Australian Open to compete in the first Grand Slam of the next year. And she’ll be defending her title as she took home the trophy last year WHILE pregnant with baby Alexis. Grand Slam #24 is in the works!
Last night, the tennis star popped up at Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Gala held at the Nobu Eden Roc Hotel in Miami to help raise funds to go towards the hurricane relief efforts. That snapback is in full effect.
Oh, and it gets better…
What a year it has been. First a grand slam win followed by a awesome baby… than the most magical wedding. What next? How about a building!!… Nike announced yesterday that one of its new world headquarters buildings will be named after me. It will be the biggest on campus and is scheduled to open in 2019. I am honored and grateful! #TeamNike @nike
Not only is her personal life on cloud 9, she’s also being honored in a MAJOR way for the strides she has made in the tennis world. Serena will have the largest building at the Nike World Headquarters named after her. YAS! She made the announcement via Instagram. See what she said above.
With everything going on in her career, Serena’s first priority is her baby girl. She shared an intimate moment with her fans about how she feels when it’s time to stop breastfeeding.
How long did you breastfeed? Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it’s time to stop? pic.twitter.com/YOz4oeIajH
