"So we're leaving the hospital after six, seven days," she says. "It's been a long time. We had a lot of complications, but look what we got! We got a baby girl!"

Though it's unclear what those complications were, exactly, both Serena and her baby look happy and healthy in the surprise clip.

The end of the 2-minute video reveals that the couple's first child together is named Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. and weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces when she was born on Sept. 1, 2017. Number of grand slam titles to her name? One.

(Serena Williams won the Australian Open in January when she was 8 weeks pregnant.)

After releasing the video, Williams followed up with an Instagram photo of herself holding her adorable little girl.

"Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.," she captioned the shot. "You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories."
