Well, that鈥檚 one way to make returning to work after maternity leave a little easier! Serena Williams鈥 husband, Alexis Ohanian, used four billboards (outside Palm Springs, California) for one *big* public display of affection, in honor of his wife鈥檚 competitive return to singles tennis after giving birth in September.

鈥淭hese just went up on alongside I-10 into Palm Springs,鈥 the Reddit co-founder tweeted Tuesday morning, along with photos of several billboards emblazoned with the words, 鈥淕reatest momma of all time. G.M.O.A.T.,鈥 and adorable images of their 5-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia. 鈥淍OlympiaOhanian & I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself, with some help from Jr. #GMOAT鈥

Seeing the signs that will line the highway on her drive to next week鈥檚 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, left the 23-time grand slam title holder feeling some serious love. 鈥淟iterally am crying,鈥 she commented to Ohanian on Instagram. 鈥淭his is so sweet. I love you.鈥

After all, her foray into motherhood hasn鈥檛 been without difficulties, as Williams revealed to CNN on February 20 that she 鈥渁lmost died after giving birth鈥 and that becoming a mother has been an overwhelming experience.

鈥淪ometimes I get really down and feel like, 鈥楳an, I can鈥檛 do this,'鈥 she explained to Vogue in January. 鈥淣o one talks about the low moments 鈥 the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry. I鈥檝e broken down I don鈥檛 know how many times. Or I鈥檒l get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, 鈥榃hy do I feel so sad when I have a beautiful baby?鈥 The emotions are insane.鈥

But her husband has made it a point to always cheer her on. Although the Internet entrepreneur has admitted he鈥檇 never seen a tennis match before he met Williams in June 2015, he鈥檚 been her number-one fan ever since. 鈥淚 felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self,鈥 he told Vanity Fair last year. 鈥淚 find myself just wanting to be better by simply being around her because of the standard she holds.鈥

Match point, Alexis.
