Serena Williams first children’s book, The Adventures of Qai Qai, will be published in September 2022.
After Williams and Ohanian gave the doll to their young daughter, the two became inseparable. The couple wanted to share Qai Qai’s fun antics with the world by creating her own Instagram account in August 2018, with the help of Invisible Universe, which brought the doll to life.
On Thursday, the tennis star announced the book.
“Storytime is such an important pillar of our bedtime routine, like so many others around the world,” Williams, 40, said in a statement about reading with her 4-year-old daughter Olympia, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian.
Qai Qai is a special member of our family and we hope The Adventures of Qai Qai will give others a new way to welcome Qai Qai into their own home.
