Serena Williams shares intimate home videos and snaps of baby daughter Olympia as she celebrates her top moments of 2017

SERENA Williams has celebrated her first year as a mother with a montage of gorgeous clips of her baby daughter Olympia, shot at home.

The 36-year-old tennis champion, who had Olympia in September, selected ten "cute" videos to share on Instagram on New Year's Eve, including one where her husband Alexis Ohanian created a "baby football".

Serena, who has stunned fans by returning to the court less than four months after giving birth on December 31, also filmed herself in hospital recovering.

In the Instagram captions, the seven-time Wimbledon champ wrote: "My final top 10 moment of 2017. Of course includes @olympiaohanian they say save the best for last.

"I could not choose so I just choose 10 random videos. They all were so cute to me."

The first clip showed Serena "twinning" with her tot in matching pink hoodies – while the mum is also heard comparing her newborn to her fellow tennis champ sister Venus while in hospital.

Talking to camera, Serena says of Olympia: "Junior took after her Auntie V because she has very thin legs."

Another video shows Reddit executive Alexis, 34 – who wed Serena in November – holding up his baby daughter while she wears a doughnut-print babygro, and sneezes adorably.

Proud Serena also uploaded a video showing Olympia holding her own milk bottle at 12 weeks old – before the mum praises her for doing so well.

But Serena's top choice – the video she called "the best" – shows Alexis pretending Olympia is a football and carrying her round like an NFL player.

Serena, who left her fans agog by revealing she was pregnant back in April, had an entire hospital floor cleared for the birth of her first tot on September 13.

The star is said to have held a baby shower celebration in Miami back in May, and it was reported that pal Meghan Markle snubbed the shower to be with Prince Harry at the polo.

The £63m sportswoman also amazed the world by playing tennis competitively while pregnant – and later said she could do so because she was carrying a girl.

She told Vogue:  "Two weeks after we found out, I played the Australian Open.

"I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble.

"Ride or die. Women are tough that way."

The mum has made it crystal clear that in terms of her athletic career, she's "not done yet".

She added: "If still playing, I know I can play. This is just a new part of my life.

"My baby's going to be in the stands and hopefully cheering for me."″ target=”_blank” title=”Click to share on Twitter
