Be it in similar clothes or appearances, the mother and daughter seldom miss out on an opportunity to exude sibling vibes on social media, drawing likes and comments aplenty, not just from their followers but also Serena’s past and present rivals.

The last of the twinning was at a recent photoshoot when the 23-time Grand Slam champion and her little one posed in similar purple swimsuits.

The 39-year-old held Olympia’s hand as she received a touch of make-up before the mother and daughter pouted and posed into the camera in a manner that would put the world’s best models to shame.

Now, there’s a brand new twinning video that has Serena and Olympia dressed up as bunnies.

The champion, apparently playing with her daughter before putting her to bed, is seen in fake bunny ears and a slip of white over her nose.

Her daughter twins the look and says “cheese” before the adorable mother and daughter smile into the camera.

“Like, I look a like a bunny, say cheese!” Olympia is heard saying as she smiles into the camera.

She then excitedly shows off her lipstick, saying, “Wait, we have lipsticks”.

Her mother nods in agreement, saying, “We do”.

Her mother asks if she wants to talk by herself, to which the little one replies, “I say I want to talk myself”.

The kiddo then starts playing with a soft toy, a monkey she cuddles while sleeping, as Serena tries hilariously hard not to drop off and is even heard mumbling, “It’s bedtime, go to bed.”

However, Olympia looks far from ready to turn in for the night, as she rolls on the bed playfully and tugs at her mother’s head wrap even as Serena repeats, “It’s time to go…”.
