On court with her powerful forehands, off court with her fashion and now on the commercials with her acting, Serena seems to have ticked all boxes.
Procter and Gamble roped in Serena and her daughter for a cute commercial for diaper brand Pampers. The commercial revolves around Serena Williams and her 19-month-old daughter, Olympia. The idea behind the ad campaign with Serena is to encourage mothers to accept the wild side of their toddlers.
Andre Schulten, Procter and Gamble’s general manager for the Baby Care division’s North America market said:
Pampers believes every child was born to be wild. We want to help parents embrace and celebrate their curious, active babies’ wild moves without hesitation – and we couldn’t think of a more perfect parent to help us on this mission than Serena Williams.
The commercial starts off with Serena talking to the viewer and asking if they have wild children. It later moves into a shot of the “wild child” and Serena explains how life has changed.
Serena is no newbie to being on the move, she has won 23 Grand Slam singles and 14 doubles titles with her sister Venus. Including mixed doubles, Serena has a massive kitty of 39 major titles. She was also eight weeks pregnant with her daughter, Olympia, when she lifted the Australian Open trophy in 2017.
Williams, who is married to Reddit co-founder – Alexis Ohanian, said: “My daughter, Olympia, has always been very active.”
All the active mothers with overtly wild or active children, this pampers ad is just for you!
