Even legends have “mom” moments. Retired tennis star Serena Williams recently posted a TikTok with her adorable daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. In the clip, the 5-year-old is extremely excited to show off her collection of cat toys.

Ohanian rips open the mystery toys and reveals them to be tampons.

“What is that?” Williams asks her daughter with a calm voice.

“A cat toy for Karma,” Ohanian replies.

When her mother asks her again, the cutie repeats the statement even louder. Williams then clarifies that their pet cat’s name is Karma. She then stares into the camera, bewildered, while her mini-me proceeds to rip open another tampon.

“You have some more cat toys? Let’s not play with too many of those,” she says.

“I’m just using one more,” Ohanian explains, pleading her case as to why she needs to find the right one.

Wiliams loses this match and playfully covers her face in defeat.

“Who am I to steal her joy? It’s a Cat Toy! Don’t @ me #OlympiasWorld,” she wrote in the video’s caption.

Although Williams watched her tampon supply decrease, commenters thought the exchange was hilarious.

“At least it’s a cat toy. My son used them on a school project as clouds,” TikTok user @eos_201 wrote, reminding the tennis champion that the moment could have been worse.

@crystalannehill made us think that maybe kids are just curious about their mom’s things.

“When my daughter was little, she was in my room being too quiet. I walked upstairs, and she had taken all my pads and stuck them to the wall,” she commented.

Tiktok user @tj1672 reminded Williams to keep her game face on.

“Motherhood is not for the weak. Takes real strength not to reveal how much your cracking up inside,” they wrote.


“You bout to have to go to the store!” @amandalee904 joked.

Ohanian’s little personality has undeniably made her a social media favorite.

As reported by Blavity, the prodigy recently showed off her inherited backhand serve skills.



But if Serena ever comes up empty on “cat toys,” she can call up her friends at Playtex, whom she had a 2009 endorsement with. Although the 23-time Grand Slam champion isn’t hitting the court anymore, we’re pretty sure they will give her a refill.
