Serena Williams shares a heartfelt message with her daughter in a new Gatorade commercial and it’s all about girl power.
Today, the tennis champ saw a new ad released for Gatorade and it encourages young girls to reach for the stars in going after their athletic interests despite the adversity they could come up against. The commercial doesn’t just star Serena, it also has her baby girl, Alexis Olympian Ohanian Jr. in it.
The one-month-old is being held by her mom in the spot and as the brand notes, girls drop out of sports at 1.5 times the rate of boys by age of 14. Those who manage to stay involved in sports are healthier, happier and have better odds of success later in life.
This latest video is part of the brand’s Sisters in Sweat campaign that they are using to promote Gatorade’s new scripted series that is being developed in partnership with AwesomenessTV. The show will follow a girls’ high school lacrosse team and the first episode of the six-part series will debut on Wednesday, November 22.
Williams has had a lot going on lately having just married her longtime boyfriend Alexis Ohanian Jr. in a glamorous ceremony in New Orleans on Thursday.
