What’s Serena Williams’ greatest accomplishment? Hint: It’s not her stand-out tennis record. It’s her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

Even though the celeb sports mama doesn’t celebrate birthdays (as a Jehovah’s Witness bday parties are not part of her belief system), she did pay tribute to her now-two-year-old daughter on the day of her birth.

Competing in the U.S. Open didn’t stop Williams from posting a family birth pic and cute caption on Instagram. Along with a photo of the tot just minutes after her birth, Williams wrote, “The last 2 years have been my greatest accomplishment.”

Hubby Alexis Ohanian echoed the sweet sentiment with his own IG post, “Thank you for being the greatest thing we’ve ever done.” Ohanian, who recently wrote an essay for The New York Times Parenting section, also added, “And thank you for teaching me that every parent in the US deserves those first months with their newborn. I’m a better business leader because of it. #PaidFamilyLeave.”
