As if we weren’t already impressed with Serena Williams’s daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., we have a new reason to admire this incredible child. Baby Olympia has become a boss at only 2 years old!
You read that right—Williams’s toddler is now the youngest person to own a professional team after she and her mom became co-owners of Los Angeles–based women’s football team Angel City. The team will officially start playing in Spring 2022.
Williams’s husband, Alexis Ohanian, who led the investment for the team, wrote a statement about how Olympia inspired this business move. “As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front-row seat to this revolution,” Ohanian said in a press release . “I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter.”
In 2019, Williams told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America that she wants to instill a fearlessness and determination in her daughter. “I want to teach her that it’s okay to make the first move. It’s okay to ask and to say, ‘Listen, I want a chance at being in this play. Like, put me in. Or just give me this first opportunity.’ There are so many different ways to showcase that.”
