On Friday morning, tennis champ Serena Williams took to Instagram to let it be known that for the next six weeks, she, her husband Alexis Ohanian and 2-year-old daughter Olympia will be self quarantined.

“Spending the next 6 weeks in solitude. Being a wife. Being a mom. Cooking. Cleaning. Spring cleaning. Face mask. Makeup tutorials. I’ll let you know how it goes…. stay safe everyone. This is serious.”

Serena Williams’ Unseeding Shows What Happens to Women who Offramp to Have a Baby

Serena Williams left tennis at the top. She was the No. 1 player in the world when she took her maternity leave more than a year ago, coming off of an Australian Open win. She missed 13 months, and now she’s back. The problem? She’s unranked, and she’s entering this week’s Miami Open as an unseeded player against Naomi Osaka, who won at Indian Wells, where Williams just played her first event in over a year.

Miami Open tournament director James Blake — once ranked as high as No. 4 in the world — doesn’t think it’s fair to punish Williams so severely for taking time off tennis to become a mother, and he’s making it clear as Williams prepares for Wednesday’s match.

“It makes sense to protect someone who goes on maternity leave,” Blake said, via BBC. “The rules should help her get the benefit of an easier draw and a better path. These kind of things shouldn’t happen. She has won this title so many times that she needs protection. It’s not as if she left because of injury and lost her passion for the game. She had a kid, which we should all be celebrating, so when she comes back there should be a grace period where she can still be seeded.”

“It’s a kind of punishment, which is tough,” Blake continued, per the Washington Post. “I hope they revisit those talks, although it will be too late for her unless she decides to have another child.”

Serena Williams introduces Daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr to the World

So Teyana Taylor isn’t the only celebrity with a daughter who is a Junior!

Tennis Champ Serena Williams introduced her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr to the world on Wednesday.

The new mom shared the first photo of her gorgeous baby girl on her Instagram account.

“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories,” the reigning Australian Open champ captioned the photo of her precious baby girl nestled on her chest.

The tennis pro and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder fiancé Alexis Ohanian, welcomed their new addition on Sept. 1, a first child for both of them.

It was a bumpy start, Williams related in a video about the homecoming and leaving the hospital.

“So we’re leaving the hospital after six, seven days,” she says in a YouTube video debuting her daughter. “It’s been a long time, but we had a lot of complications, but look who we got — we got a baby girl!”

Williams also posted some photos via Instagram story.

The newborn arrived at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, weighing in at 6 lbs., 13 oz.

Congratulations again to the Williams-Ohanian family!

When your partner has a unisex name like Alexis and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star Imani Schumpert, you can give your daughter the same name as her dad and slap a Junior on the end and instantly make her even more unique!

As is known, the suffix junior, usually applies to male offsprings of fathers.
