Get your tissues ready because this new Gatorade ad, starring Serena Williams and her baby girl, Alexis, will move you to tears.
The commercial starts with the newly married tennis queen holding her adorable two-month-old over her shoulder in her nursery and saying: "Baby girl, I won't mind if you play tennis badly. I won't mind if you choose to never pick up a racquet, but I beg you ... in this game of life, please keep playing no matter what. Just like it taught me, sports will teach you to be strong."
The new mom proceeds to give Alexis more gems of advice, which could be used for any young lady considering or participating in sports.
"You'll discover the power and grace of your body. You'll learn to move and you'll learn the way to move others," Williams continues. "Sports will teach you the strength of your allies, whether your bond is by blood or by ball, whether she shares the color of your skin or the color of your jersey ... you'll find your sisters in sweat."
Watch the poignant ad in full below.
Go ahead, we'll wait as you wipe those tears.
Is that not the sweetest thing you've ever seen?
"Keep playing," indeed.
This beautiful sentiment from Serena and princess Alexis seems to get more precious with each view. Too sweet.
