Serena Williams's Daughter Olympia Teaches Her Mom How to Play Piano in Sweet New Video

While we all learn many things from our parents, sometimes it works the other way around.

In an adorable new video on Instagram, Serena Williams showed her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. (“Olympia” for short), giving her a lesson on how to play the piano.

The video, which was originally shared to the athlete's TikTok account, shows the 4-year-old in teacher mode. “Okay we did that, now we have to do this,” Olympia says in the clip. At one point, Williams plays the wrong note and Olympia corrects her, to which Williams jokingly says, “You gonna fire me?”

In the caption, the tennis pro said, “I teach her tennis… She teaches me piano… @olympiaohanian.”

Many commenters were impressed by Olympia's talents, like one who said, “This baby is only 4! Watch out world!” Another added, “Awwwwww she so focused wow beautiful Olympia.” One user noticed the strong similarity between the two, saying, “Mini Serena.”

As Williams mentioned in the caption, when she's not getting music lessons from Olympia, she's been trying to pass on some of her tennis skills to her daughter.

Throughout the past year, the athlete has posted videos and pics of Olympia's skills on her Instagram account. Back in January, Williams shared a video of her daughter practicing her swing in a black-and-white patterned outfit. “Turn, back, reach, head, follow through,” she wrote in the caption.

The mom-and-daughter duo have also been rocking some iconic matching athleisure sets recently, like when they sported purple bodysuits on the tennis court last July, or when Williams played into Olympia's love of princesses by wearing a sparkly dress with her daughter and swinging tennis rackets.

We can never get enough of this pair.
