In case you missed it, Serena Williams gave birth to a baby girl last Friday.

The baby is the first child for Serena and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, taking their little family from a duo to a trio.

Now, Serena is enjoying her time as a first time mom.

“Serena is doing beyond perfect,” a source told E! News. “She feels great and is just glowing about being a mother for the first time.

“Her baby girl is healthy and beautiful.”

For now, the 35-year-old is staying private about her little girl, and has yet to reveal the baby’s name or share any pictures.

However, she did send a few pics and videos of the baby to her sister, Venus, who was playing at the 2017 U.S. Open at the time of the birth.

Of course, Venus is over the moon about being a first time aunt, and couldn’t hide her enthusiasm when asked about it at the U.S. Open.

“Obviously I’m super excited,” she said courtside. “Words can’t describe.”

Though Venus couldn’t be there for the birth, there’s no doubt she’s made time to see her niece since then.

According to the source, Serena and Alexis have been surrounded by family on both sides, who have been helping out since the child’s arrival.

However, only “a few close friends have seen the baby.”

The tennis player was also sent beautiful flowers while she was in the hospital from some “big-name celebrities.”

Those could’ve been sent from a number of Serena’s famous friends, like Beyoncé, Ciara, or Eva Longoria.

Of course, Serena receives the most support from her fiancé.

“Her fiancé is the nicest man alive,” the source told E! News. “He really is so in love with Serena and is really supportive not only as a new dad but also as a partner.

“He is a busy man but puts Serena first in everything he does.”

It’s clear Serena and the baby are getting all the attention and love they need right now.
