Serena Williams' 2-Year-Old Daughter Becomes Youngest Team Owner In Sports


Los Angeles' newest women’s soccer team has a star-studded ownership group that includes Serena Williams' two-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia.

The tennis star and her husband Alexis Ohanian brought in their toddler as part of the ownership stake for the Los Angeles expansion franchise, which is currently using the nickname Angel City, making Olympia the youngest team owner in professional sports.

"I am proud to be a part of this wonderful group working to bring a women’s professional football club to Los Angeles," Alexis wrote on Instagram Tuesday (July 21). "Chiefly, because I'm a fan of the game, but also because I believe there is massive potential for the sport and it's been undervalued by too many people for far too long. As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front-row seat to this revolution. I'm personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women's sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter."

The ownership group, which consists of over 30 people, also includes former U.S Women’s National Team stars Mia Hamm, Abby Wambach and Julie Foudy, as well as actors Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Garner and Uzo Aduba.
