The baby daughter of world-dominating tennis star Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian joins her mum on the front of the magazine's February edition, and looks cute as hell doing so.

"Knowing I've got this handsome baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match", she said.

In the end, Williams had to have a filter inserted into a major vein to prevent any possible clots from entering her lungs, and was forced to go on bed rest for the next six weeks.

Williams' sights remain set on the record of 24 Grand Slam titles held by Margaret Court - though she won't push baby Olympia to follow her path. "My coach and team always said, 'Only go to tournaments when you are prepared to go all the way.' I can compete - but I don't want to just compete, I want to do far better than that and to do so I will need a little more time".

Despite the struggle, she said the family is doing well and is even considering having more children, but added she is in "no rush". "When I'm too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born". However, with Williams recovering on bed rest for six weeks, she and Ohanian found this transition into parenthood to be understandably hard.

Williams, who has a history of blood clots, suffered from shortness of breath the day after the birth and told her doctors she needed a CT scan.

That drama kicked off a trainwreck of medical problems as coughing fits opened up her C-section wound and blood thinners led to a hematoma in her abdomen. "I want to teach her that there are no limits". "That's a different feeling for me". She was right: The scan revealed that a few small blood clots had found their way into her lungs.

Williams, who recently announced that she would not be returning to the Australian Open to defend her title, also expressed her huge desire to get back to dominance on the court. Doctors say Williams' experience should remind women to take care of themselves during pregnancy.

She said in an Instagram post Wednesday that seeing the 4-month-old on the cover "brought tears to [her] eyes". Solemn. It breaks my heart. "Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, 'Why do I feel so sad when I have a lovely baby?' The emotions are insane", she explained.
