The Reddit co-founder and philanthropist shared a series of pictures of their new family-of-four including a heart-melting one of big sister Olympia looking adoringly at Adira.

“Thanks to all the amazing medical staff who took care of my wife & our daughter. I’ll never forget the moment I introduced @olympiaohanian to her baby sister,” he continued.

You might remember, Serena and Alexis revealed they were expecting again at the Met Gala in May. The tennis champion not only showed up to the event with a visible baby bump, she also cheekily posted a photo of herself and Alexis all dressed up on social media and captioned it, “Was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the 3 of us.”

Earlier this month, the couple shared they would be having another baby girl. In a video posted to Serena’s YouTube channel, the reveal took place with an epic light show, surrounded by their close family and friends, including one very excited Aunty Venus!
