With 23 Grand Slam singles titles under her belt, Serena Williams established herself as one of the tennis ‘GOATs’ on the women’s tour. The American tennis legend has already mesmerized fans by showcasing her stellar on-court skills throughout her illustrious competitive journey. But now that she has put down her racket, the 42-year-old sporting icon has diligently taken up an off-court endeavor.
The ‘Queen of the Court’ recently brought to light her latent talent for singing by belting out a vintage tune for her kid. While ardently following her newfound interest in singing, Williams has also decided to teach her little daughter Olympia a retro song at an unexpected location.
Serena Williams takes special mother-daughter music time with Olympia
After her retirement, the former tennis ace seldom misses providing an update on day-to-day off-the-court activities. Even her recent mother-daughter session was not kept hidden from the public lens on social media. Serena Williams and her daughter Olympia were sighted together in the car as they were jamming the retro song “Car Wash” by the American soul and R&B band Rose Royce.
While singing the chorus of the track, “At the car wash yeah, yeah… ,’ the 23-time singles Grand Slam champion wanted her daughter to repeat the same. A video clip of the mother-daughter singing session was recently brought to light by a fan page, ‘venusxserena’, which added the caption, “🎶𝐀𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐫 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡 🎶𝐯𝐢𝐚 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐚’𝐬 𝐓𝐢𝐤𝐭𝐨𝐤”
While the former American tennis player was trying to teach Olympia the vintage track, her daughter was busy eating her food. Consequently, Olympia had to face the wrath of her tennis star mother, who was heard saying, “You can’t be eating when we are trying to work on our singing.” Just like Serena, her husband, Alexis Ohanian, has also imparted a skill to their daughter.
Olympia has learned the art of baking from her father
The American internet entrepreneur is diligently following the tradition of baking ‘Papa Pancakes’ on Sundays. Alexis Ohanian has learned it from his dad, and now he is doing his best to impart his artistic baking skills to his little kid. During his pancake session, the internet mogul is often accompanied by Olympia, as he recently took it to the ‘next level’ for his daughter.
Sunday means Papa Pancakes 🥞 a tradition my own dad did every Sunday for my entire childhood. I had to take it next level for Olympia with squeeze bottles. 😤 Always a chance to improve pic.twitter.com/w1VsYMH4uz
