Serena Williams is one of the most famous American tennis players of all time.

The 36-year-old was ranked #1 in the world on eight different occasions, and she holds the most Grand Slam titles in mixed doubles, doubles, and singles among active players.

On December 29, 2016, Serena announced her engagement to boyfriend Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit. Four months later, on April 19, 2017, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child.

Serena spent the rest of her pregnancy sharing updates on social media, keeping her fans informed about her baby.

On September 1, 2017, Serena Williams gave birth to a sweet baby girl, whom they named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

Now, Serena and Alexis Sr. are enjoying parenthood. They share photos of Olympia on Instagram all the time, and she’s absolutely adorable.

Recently, Serena revealed that she’s upset with Alexis Sr., though the reason is actually really sweet.

On November 11, 2017, Serena tweeted:

I do love Alexis Sr. @alexisohanian but if he buys one more outfit or toy for Olympia @OlympiaOhanian I’m going to explode.

Apparently, Alexis Sr. has been spoiling his baby girl a bit too much, and it’s getting on Serena’s nerves.

Of all the reasons to be angry at your partner, this one is at least heartwarming.

Alexis Sr. wasn’t going to let Serena have the last word, though, so he shot back, “Books don’t count!”

It seems like Alexis thinks he’s only buying books for Olympia, but Serena seems convinced that there are toys and clothes in there as well.

Everyone who saw Alexis Sr. and Serena’s Twitter argument thought it was adorable — and most people sided with Alexis Sr.!

One woman wrote, “Lol. Books don’t count. You can never have too many.”

Others still just took this opportunity to compliment Serena on her lovely family.

“My mom and I have loved you and your family so much! You are awesome! Your partner seems wonderful also. However, you all have really outdone yourselves with your BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL,” one woman wrote.

Another woman made a good point, writing: “There’re a lot of irresponsible parents out there. Sis should be glad the man wants to spoil his first child.”

This family is just so cute, even their arguments are precious.
