23-Time Grand Slam winner, Serena Williams became a mother in September 2017. In fact, she won her last Grand Slam at the Australian Open that year, while she was pregnant. Ever since the birth of her daughter, Olympia, the former World No. 1 has been playing the role of a mother to perfection.

After her daughter was born, Serena brought a doll for her. The doll was named ‘Qai Qai’, and Williams’ nephew played a part in naming the doll. By August 2018, Qai Qai had an official Instagram account. As of today, that account has more followers than some players on Tour!

Qai Qai is quite active on social media and has a popular fan base. In a recent post on Instagram, Qai Qai is seen grooving to the beats of Relly B’s ‘Where the Money Resides’. She put up a caption that said, “2021 is all about boss moves and hanging with Relly B where the money resides!!”

The graphic design of the doll along with the animation feels realistic. On seeing the post, Serena saw the funny side of it and must have laughed out loud, considering this was her comment on the clip.

Not long ago, Qai Qai was seen dancing along with pop star Shakira. Shakira put up a post and commented, “Omg I’m dying I’m such a fan of Qai Qai.” There’s no doubt, Qai Qai has become quite a sensation in the recent past. 

Coming back to Serena, she was seen giving Olympia tennis lessons. The 2017 Australian Open champion will be headlining the exhibition event, “A Day at the Drive” in Adelaide. After this, she will depart for Melbourne and will urge herself to equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles.
