Quarantine life is not easy for moms, but a princess costume might just be the answer to staying at home with a fussy toddler.
Or at least that seems to be the strategy for Serena Williams. The tennis star posted an adorable snap of herself with daughter Alexis Olympia on Instagram Thursday, revealing the mother-daughter duo in matching bright pink princess gowns. The costumes appear to be those of the character Aurora, from Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty.”
Two-year-old Olympia stands barefoot in what looks to be a closet and helps zip up the back of her mother’s dress. “She’s got my back already. And I’ll always have hers,” wrote Williams in her caption.
In the corner of the shot, a pair of bright pink matching Ugg boots can be spotted, nearly hidden by the swaths of fabric from their gowns. The boots appear to be those of Williams — but we’re nearly certain that a pair of mini-me Uggs for Olympia are on the floor, just outside the frame of the shot. The mother and daughter are known to dress in matching outfits, in everything from floral pajamas and Nike gear to aforementioned princess dresses.
And it’s certainly not the first time that the tennis star has dressed up in a princess costume during quarantine. Back in June, the duo twirled in their Florida living room dancing to music from “Beauty and the Beast,” clad in matching “Belle” gowns. In April, they wore matching “Elsa” gowns from Disney’s “Frozen.” The dress up looks may be a far cry from Williams’ latest fashion campaigns, like the one she did with Stuart Weitzman back in May, but they show just how devoted she is to her daughter.
That month, Williams also debuted a hilarious TikTok video of herself cooking in her kitchen while wearing a Snow White costume, singing, “Hello I’m back! I’m going to stick this in the microwave for two minutes. Speaking of backs, my dress doesn’t fit in the back!” as she revealed that the entire back of her dress was unzipped.
We won’t be surprised if the mother and daughter work their way through the entire Disney princess catalogue — in fact, we’re counting on it.
