How may she not be? And now, at simply 4 months previous, after posing for her dad and mom’ marriage ceremony images like a professional, Olympia has grow to be the youngest cowl star of Vogue journal.
“She’s obviously going to have a very special life,” Williams’ husband says within the cowl story, summing up what we already know, “but there are enough cautionary tales about kids who grow up in the spotlight.

Knowing I’ve got this beautiful baby to go home to makes me feel like I don’t have to play another match. I don’t need the money or the titles or the prestige. I want them, but I don’t need them. That’s a different feeling for me.”
