Tennis legend, Serena Williams, made sure her little girl's first doll is black. She grew up without many black dolls to play with and wanted to make sure her daughter, Alexis Olympia, has one.
Serena Williams ensured that the first baby doll her daughter, adorable little Alexis Olympia, plays with is a black one.
Serena said that when she grew up there were hardly any black dolls for little girls to play with, so she wanted to make sure she gets Alexis one.
Growing up, I didn't have that many opportunities to have black dolls. And I was just thinking, like, I want her first doll to be black.
Alexis' second baby doll will be a white one, as Serena wants to teach her the message of "love for each other", according to a report by eNCA.
The doll's name is Qai Qai and judging from the snaps that Serena shares of her daughter, she loves her baby doll, even if she often drops her on the floor.
Briefly.co.za learned that Qai Qai has her own Instagram page and has a massive 87 000 followers.
Yes, you read that right. The doll has its own Instagram page and has more followers than most of us.
Serena is married to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, and their daughter was born in 2017.
