Some of Serena's followers, meanwhile, just wanted to comment on the lovely family moment, writing: "She is so cute," and: "Beautiful family."

Serena is no stranger to modelling, and now her daughter is following in her footsteps.

Last month, the pair were photographed in matching pink one-pieces for a Stuart Weitzman campaign, which saw the tennis star and her fashionista-in-the-making striking twin poses with their hands on their hips.

Olympia even propped up her toe to take the pose to another level.

Olympia wore her hair pulled up, and Serena sported hers in long blonde-streaked waves.

"The Shady One and the Wild Child, together we’re unstoppable," the sports star captioned the photo.

Serena’s celebrity friend Naomi Campbell responded with heart emojis, and one fan added: "Olympia understands a pointed toe moment and I'm HERE FOR IT."

Another fan wrote. "The cutest mommy-daughter duo ever!!!"
