While pop artist Ciara simply wrote: "Proud of you mama".

Last year, the 37-year-old sports star honoured Olympia's birthday with a video that was taken while she was still pregnant, on the day she went to the hospital, where she was given an emergency C-section after her heart rate dropped dangerously low during her contractions.

Along with their daughter's birthday, Sunday also marks the day Williams will compete in this year's U.S. Open tournament against Croatian tennis pro Petra Martić.

He posted a really cute pic of the family of three's hands and captioned it with: 'How has it already been 2 years?

This is not the first time the Reddit co-founder mentions the wonderful benefits of taking parental leave.

Just last month, he published an essay for NYT Parenting, explaining his decision to take 16 weeks off work as soon as Serena gave birth to their baby back in September of 2017.

The post was adored by all of Williams' celebrity fans, who took their turns in gushing over the first-time mum's love.

The 36-year-old then cleaned up Colin de Grandhomme, for 44, to achieve the feat in his 74th T20 match of his illustrious career. Batting first the hosts made 174 for 4 from their 20 overs with seamer Tim Southee taking two wickets.

He learned a lot about parenthood during that time as he did his best to be a good dad, as well as husband.

Taking to Instagram, the 23-time Grand Slam champion shared a picture of her daughter Alexis Olympia on her chest just after she was born, with her entrepreneur husband looking lovingly over her shoulder.

The mother of one went on to add that while "it's hard" to be away from her daughter, it comes with the territory of being a working mother.

Like I said, some days when I'm away, because usually I'm with her, I can train really early in the morning and be done pretty early with my day, and I can just stay with her for the rest of the day.

"You know, it's hard".

She said past year: "Being a Jehovah's Witness is important to me, but I've never really practiced it and have been wanting to get into it". "In tournament schedule, it's totally different, so I'm kind of pushed out of my usual day-to-day life. That's been the most, I mean, "the" toughest thing I have ever dealt with in my career".
