Serena Williams wants two kids with husband Alexis Ohanian

All the post-pregnancy emergencies Serena Williams had to go through after giving birth to baby girl Alexis Olympia last September has not deterred her from thinking about expanding her family.

In an interview with ET, the 36-year-old tennis pro opened up about motherhood and her marriage to Alexis Ohanian at the 14th Annual Desert Smash Celebrity Tennis Event in La Quinta, California, on Tuesday.

"It's been amazing," said Williams, who gave birth to her and her husband Alexis Ohanian's first child. "I've always wanted to be a mom but I never seemed to have time with my career. Then, it just happened, and I was like, 'I don't know.' I just dove right in."

"It's so natural for me," she continued. "I love it. I love her so much. We have a great little family going on."

Williams is still keeping busy with her sport and she's already played her first competitive match since giving birth last September.

But her first priority is baby Olympia.

"Working motherhood is real. It's so real," she joked. "But I have my priorities and Olympia is that. And Alexis [co-founder of Reddit] works all the time as well. He's not even here right now, he's working on his new VC fund. So, that's great! But I'm never a day without Olympia. She's my priority and every day I need to be home with her. I don't wanna miss any moments with her."

Williams has had plenty of precious moments with her baby girl but what stands out the most for the new mom is Olympia's "toothless smile". "She's so happy. That is my favorite thing, her toothless smile," she gushed.

But there are two more things Williams is thinking for Olympia. First is a special signal monitor so that she can keep a check on her if she is "OK" and another is giving Olympia a baby brother or sister.

"I definitely want two [kids], God willing," she exclaimed. "But right now, I want tennis as well. So, I'm going to wait and see what happens."

"It's definitely not easy," she added. "I have this undying drive to be the best that I can be. Whether it's [being] a mom or playing tennis or doing my designing. I just want to do the best that I can."
