On September 1, Tennis superstar Serena Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, celebrated their daughter’s second birthday.

Their first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, was born on September 1, 2017.

And Williams took to Instagram to share a special and intimate photo of their pride and joy in celebration of the big day. The picture shows the family of three just moments after Olympia made her way into the world.

The incredibly proud mom wrote:

The last 2 years have been my greatest accomplishment.

And of her millions of followers, thousands took to the comments section to wish Olympia a very happy birthday.

This photo just made me tear up. So beautiful.

Love you guys‼️ Such wonderful humans that are constantly inspiring the world.

She’s 2 already! Wow, time flies!! Happy birthday to my fellow Virgo, Olympia!

I always say since having my boys I’ve experienced joy, happiness, laughter and even frustration that much more intensely.

Amazing. Happy birthday to baby and momma.

As Dearly previously reported, since Olympia’s birth, Serena has made her daughter her number one priority, even when it came to time getting back on to the tennis court after giving birth.

The mom wrote on Instagram in 2018:

I am getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby [Olympia] was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love. So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do.

My fellow moms and dads working- or stay home it’s equally as intense- but you inspire me. Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Olympia.
