In their reveal Wednesday, Williams also shared the difficulties of the birth in an adorable video on her website, SerenaWilliams.com. Baby Alexis was born Friday, Sept. 1 at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, weighing 6 lbs., 13 oz.

“It’s been a long time,” Williams says in the video. “We had a lot of complications but look what we got, we got a baby girl.”
Prior to the birth, Williams, 35, and Ohanian decided not to find out about the sex of the baby. Williams and her fiancé Alexis Ohanian have yet to set a date for the wedding.
