American tennis star Serena Williams has finally shared the photos and name of her baby girl, a fortnight after giving birth in Florida.

“Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr,” the former world number one and 23-time grand slam champions said in postings on her social media accounts.

The 35 year -old is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian who said: “Congrats to two of our all time favourite redditors who just welcomed a new baby snoo into their family.”

“So we’re leaving the hospital after six days. It’s been a long time. We had a lot of complications, but look what we got!”

Williams confirmed her pregnancy in April, hours after triggering speculation when she accidentally posted a short-lived selfie on social media with the caption: “20 weeks.”

Williams, who also is the world’s highest paid female athlete, was about two months pregnant when she captured her 23rd grand slam title at the Australian Open.

She has also announced plans to grace the tennis courts in the not so distant future.
