Serena Williams and daughter Alexis Olympia look adorable together as legend and tot, 3, pose for first fashion shoot

SERENA WILLIAMS and daughter Alexis Olympia looked absolutely adorable together as they enjoyed their first-ever fashion shoot together.

The tennis legend, 38, teamed up with her three-year-old daughter for an inspiring debut shoot together.

Starring in Stuart Weitzman's Footsteps To Follow campaign, the pair sparkled in matching outfits.

As well as posing for a series of sweet snaps in their matching ensembles, the mum and daughter also filmed a short video.

In the clip, Serena has Alexis Olympia repeat the words. "Love. Strong. Dream. Beautiful. Intelligent."

Serena continued: "I would definitely call Olympia my mini-me. She is mini Serena.

"She's so cute. And she's so fun.

"I don't know if I hope Olympia follows in my footsteps.

"I want her to do what she wants to do and what's best for her."

The sweet video concludes with the loved-up family saying: "Together forever."

"She loves fashion, she loves wearing dresses and that's what she wants to do."

Last month, Williams hinted she could RETIRE from tennis following her Australian Open exit at the hands of Naomi Osaka in a teary interview.

The tournament Down Under was her 11th attempt to win Slam No24, which would have drawn her level with Margaret Court at the top of the majors list.

She has lost in her past four major finals and given she turns 40 in September, it is getting harder and harder to get over the line.

Questions were inevitably asked if her actions on court were her way of saying farewell to an event which she has won seven times, the last occasion in 2017 when she was a few weeks pregnant with Alexis Olympia.
