Serena and Alexis welcomed their baby girl, who was named after her dad, on 1 September at St Mary's Medical Centre in West Palm Beach. The tennis champ hinted that her due date was getting close in August when she asked for advice about what to pack in her hospital bag, writing: "When did you pack your hospital bag? One month before? Six weeks? Eight weeks? I'm totally stalling. But I have a lot of time still... I think... Anything you didn't expect to need that I'll really appreciate having in there?"
