Serena Williams unveils Baby Alexis to the world

Twelve days after being born in a West Palm Beach, Florida, hospital, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. has made her debut to the world in an Instagram post and accompanying video shared by her mother, Serena Williams.

The video goes far beyond your average “Hello, world“ first glimpse at a newborn; it cuts together home video and social-media posts from Williams‘s entire pregnancy, including what looks like a Snapchat selfie from the Australian Open in which Williams, clutching her winner’s trophy, writes, “No one knows I’m 8 weeks pregnant.“ As she told Vanity Fair for the August cover story, Williams took the pregnancy test in January just to prove to her friend that she wasn’t pregnant, and on seeing the positive result thought, “Oh my God, this can’t be—I’ve got to play a tournament. How am I going to play the Australian Open? I had planned on winning Wimbledon this year.”

Williams won the Australian Open, with only her sister Venus, two friends, a doctor, and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, aware of the pregnancy. When she announced it months later she somehow found a way to surprise people once again with her strength. And she plans to do it again soon, too; she told Buzz Bissinger that she plans to be back on the court in January.

The video ends with all the usual newborn baby stats about baby Alexis, who is named after her father in a way typically reserved for boys (though no surprise that Serena Williams’s daughter is already breaking barriers). Weight: 6 pounds and 14 ounces.

Bobby Brown sues TV over misrepresentation in daughter’s biopic

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has joined forces with her father Bobby Brown to stop TV One from airing a biopic about his daughter’s short life.

The 48-year-old had already filed suit in a Manhattan Federal Court, claiming the portrayal of him as a bad dad is defamatory.

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has now joined the lawsuit, alleging the biopic violates her right to privacy, which it claimed survived her death at age 22, TMZ  revealed on Tuesday.

CPR performed by her fiance Nick Gordon kept Bobbi Kristina alive and she was placed in a coma for six months until doctors determined that her brain was irreversibly damaged.

 She died in hospice care in Duluth, Georgia.

An autopsy revealed Bobbi Kristina drowned after consuming alcohol, cannabis and a prescription medication used for anxiety or sedation.

Three years earlier her mother Whitney Houston drowned in a bath in her Beverly Hills hotel room, aged 48, due to drug intoxication.

Bobby Brown, who now shares three children with wife  Alicia Etheredge, has already claimed in his lawsuit the movie falsely shows him as violent toward Whitney.

It also suggests that Bobbi Kristina witnessed the alleged abuse. He also claims scenes show him as an unloving father.

The estate and Bobby want more than $2 million in damages and they want the judge to stop TV One airing the show next month.

TV One isn’t backing down. It ‘stands by the film and its representation of this period in Bobbi Kristina’s life,’ the production company said in a statement to E! News.
