Serena Williams and her daughter posed in matching hot pink swimsuits for two cute Instagram portraits shared on Wednesday.
The 39-year-old tennis champ and her mini-me Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, age three, stood side by side near the swimming pool in their backyard of their Florida mansion.
While the athlete’s suit said The Shady One in white capital letters on front, the little girl’s said Wild Child.

The caption for the post read: ‘The Shady One and the Wild Child, together they’re unstoppable.’
Serena looked stunning with her long hair worn down over her shoulders and shimmery makeup. Olympia wore her hair in two small buns on top of her head.
They both posed with their hands on their hips and in the next image they sweetly held hands.
This comes after Williams and her daughter starred in Stuart Weitzman’s Footstep To Follow campaign. They rocked matching black catsuits to model the luxury brand’s new range of mom-and-daughter bodysuits.
In a video clip promoting the campaign, Serena said: ‘I would definitely call Olympia my mini-me. She is mini Serena.’

Olympia also slipped her feet into some leopard print heels just like her parent’s in one of the shots.
The range was inspired by the court catsuit Serena first wore at the 2018 French Open, shortly after giving birth to Olympia.
Elsewhere, Serena admitted she is undecided if she’d like her little girl to follow her into a career in tennis.

She added: ‘I don’t know if I hope if Olympia follows in my footsteps. I want her to do whatever she wants to do and what’s best for her.’
However, Serena previously said she is adamant Olympia will have a career in fashion as she is already judging her fashion looks.
She said: ‘She dresses me and her father. She’ll set up before bed what we need to wear in the morning. And she says, ‘Blue shirt, blue shirt, blue shirt.’ And then she goes, ‘Mama wear this or these shoes.’ She always tells me to wear heels. She’s currently wearing heels.’

She added: ‘I do wonder what that’s going to be like when she’s a little bit older. I have no idea. We’ll see. I can’t wait. So far, she’s been wearing my heels, so I’m like, “She’s going to be in fashion!” I could’ve sworn today, she looked at me, and she was like, “Gee, yeah.” I was like, “You like what mommy’s wearing today?” When I come out sometimes, she’s like, “Oohh! Ma!”‘
Last month she said her marriage is ‘not bliss’ without work.

The star tied the knot with Ohanian in 2017, and has said their relationship only works because they both put the effort in to communicate and keep things afloat.
Speaking in a video for dating app Bumble, she said: ‘Marriage is not bliss. But it can be if you work at it.’
The sports star also revealed her number one ‘dealbreaker’ in any relationship is not having ‘loyalty’, and shared some key advice when it comes to dealing with heartbreak.
She added: ‘Heartbreak is a part of life, whether it be a loved one, a boyfriend, or an animal. But time heals all wounds.’
She said: ‘I am not sure who took this picture but working and being a mom is not easy. I am often exhausted, stressed, and then I go play a professional tennis match. We keep going. I am so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I’m proud to be this baby’s mama @olympiaohanian. #nofilter #nomakeup #nohairbursh lol #justme (sic)’
And the beauty also said she finds it ‘really kind of painful’ being away from her baby daughter.

She explained: ‘I actually prefer playing in the day because I get to go home and see my baby. I’ve been missing her the last few nights when I play. In the beginning she would really be upset when I left. And now she’s a little bit better. I think I’m a little more upset. But at the same time, she definitely still takes it a little hard. She’s still super young.’
Serena revealed that while it’s tough not always being there for her daughter, she thinks it is ‘good for her’ to be able to work still.
She added: ‘You know, it’s hard. Sometimes my heart literally aches when I’m not around her. But, you know, it’s good for me, I guess, to keep working and just – to all moms out there that it’s not easy. It’s really kind of painful. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.’
