Serena Williams brings daughter Olympia on runway at NYFW show but the adorable tot looks over it

Serena Williams chose to share a special moment at her New York Fashion Week show with her little daughter Olympia.

But the adorable two-year-old seemed overwhelmed by the attention on the runway and, frankly, looked as though she’d rather be playing with Qai Qai (her favourite doll, if you didn’t know) backstage.

The Grand Slam queen hosted the spring-summer 2020 collection showcase in the Big Apple on Tuesday afternoon, with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Lala Anthony sitting front row and center.

At the end of the show, Serena, 37, made her grand entrance on the runway with her precious little girl perched on her hip.

Although Serena tried her best to get Olympia to smile and wave for the packed-out audience, the toddler refused to play ball and instead rested her head on her mum’s chest.

Seriously, our ovaries.

Serena and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, had better prepare for more strong-headed moments from Olympia as the tot celebrated her second birthday just last week.

In other words, the terrible twos may be upon them.

The happy couple marked the youngster’s birthday with emotional Instagram posts.

Alongside a photo from her birth, Serena wrote: ‘The last 2 years have been my greatest accomplishment.’

Alexis added next to his own picture: ‘How has it already been two years?

Happy cake day @olympiaohanian Thank you for being the greatest thing we’ve ever done. 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.’

It’s been a busy ol’ week for Serena who attended the premiere of Alexis’ new documentary, The Game Changers, the night before her big NYFW show.

Serena earned major style points in her silver slip dress teamed with yellow pumps and big curly hair.
