Serena William's Daughter Olympia Gives Thanks Ahead of 2021

Alexis Ohanian's 3-Year-Old Daughter Olympia Reminded Him to Pause and Reflect Ahead of 2021

Most of us already have one foot out the door when it comes to waving 2020 goodbye and stepping into the new year, but Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian's 3-year-old daughter Olympia sees the time as an important opportunity to give thanks. "Big milestone when @OlympiaOhanian first reminded *us* to do prayers at dinner — tho [sic] I still often get too carried away stuffing my face," Alexis captioned a post on Instagram on Dec. 31. "TBH it's not something I did regularly as a kid, but it's a tradition our family does that I really love."

Alexis shared a photo of himself and his namesake seated at the dinner table while Olympia said a prayer for all she was grateful for in 2020. In a year filled with so many hardships, it's easy to overlook the positives, but Alexis saw his daughter's small act as a crucial reminder to take a beat and reflect on what he has. "It's a chance to reset for a minute each day and be thankful for all that we have. Especially this year," he wrote. "We're going into this New Year well armed with blessings and wish they abound for all of you, too. Especially if you're thanking God for Paw Patrol and chocolate as regularly as Jr [sic]."
