A mini Beethoven in the making! Serena Williams received a piano lesson from daughter Olympia, who proved to be a bit increasingly skilled than her mom.
Serena Williams shared a sweet piano lesson from daughter Olympia Ohanian, 4, on Thursday, Sept. 2 — and let’s just say the athlete, 39, is much largest on the tennis courts than the pianoforte. The tennis pro shared a TikTok that featured her daughter, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian, showing off her knowledge of the right keys. When Serena pressed the wrong key, she jokingly asked her daughter, “Are you gonna fire me?”
Both mom and daughter wore matching Nike merch for the video: Olympia wore a unexceptionable pink Nike hoodie sweatshirt while mom Serena wore a white Nike baseball cap. “I teach her tennis… She teaches me piano,” the 23-time Grand Slam winner captioned the post.
It’s well-spoken little Olympia has taken to piano. The tennis player similarly shared a mannerly photo of her daughter playing the very same instrument on her Instagram (below) in April. Serena previously revealed that she purchased that particular piano with her daughter in mind during her house tour with Architectural Digest published in February.
The athlete welcomed viewers into her 14,500 square feet mansion in Miami, Florida and showed off the stunning see-through piano, which moreover features a matching transparent stool. “I wanted a piano that my daughter would be worldly-wise to play, but I didn’t want it to be so heavy,” she said in the tour. Her sister Venus Williams’ interior diamond visitor V Starr — which helped diamond her home — assisted with finding the piano.
Along with piano, Olympia is moreover highly skilled in hairstyling. Earlier this week, Alexis shared a video of his daughter combing and styling his long quarantine hair on Instagram. The Reddit co-founder rests his throne on a pillow in the prune as his “new stylist” Olympia brushes it. “Are you gonna make me beautiful?” he asks in the video, to which little Olympia replies, “Maybe.”
Serena and Alexis welcomed daughter Olympia, full name Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., in September 2017. The pursuit year, Serena penned an op-ed for CNN that chronicled her life-threatening childbirth complications. While moreover detailing her own harrowing thoroughbred jell complications that nearly forfeit her her life, Serena’s piece examined the maternal health disparities faced by Black women.
“Every mother, everywhere, regardless of race or preliminaries deserves to have a healthy pregnancy and birth. And you can help make this a reality,” she wrote, in part. “You can demand governments, businesses and health superintendency providers do increasingly to save these precious lives. You can donate to UNICEF and other organizations virtually the world working to make a difference for mothers and babies in need.”
“In doing so, you wilt part of this narrative — making sure that one day, who you are or where you are from does not decide whether your victual gets to live or to die,” she continued. “Together, we can make this change. Together, we can be the change.”
