Siesta Key star Alyssa Salerno shared gorgeous new photos of her newborn daughter, Alessi, to Instagram. Two weeks after she welcomed her first child with boyfriend Alex Kompothecras, the Florida salon owner gave fans an adorable update on her social media page.
In a sweet slideshow, Alyssa shared a flower-filled photo of Alessi sleeping peacefully on a tree swing prop. The baby girl was wearing an adorable ivory outfit and a matching headband with a flower on it as she snoozed amid a background of pink and white roses.
A second photo showed a close-up of Alessi as she rested her chin in her hands, and a third snap showed her all bundled up in what appeared to be a bassinet and wearing a white knit cap. Three more pics featured the baby girl sweetly posing in a variety of adorable headbands atop her thick dark hair, and she even appeared to be smiling in her sleep in one of them.
In the caption to the post, Alyssa wrote that she can’t believe her baby is already 2 weeks old. She also thanked the South Florida photographer who took the gorgeous portraits of Alessi.

Can’t believe our beautiful Alessi is already 2 weeks old ???????????? HUGE thank you to @capturedmomentsbydawn for capturing these sweet photos!! I’m so in love. If you ever want any baby photos done and you are in the south Florida area then she is your girl! She did an absolutely incredible job! #babyA
In comments to the post, fans reacted to the picture-perfect photos of the baby, with some calling the Instagram share “cuteness overload.”
“Omggggg she’s the prettiest little thing!!! She has her mamas eyes,” one admirer wrote.
“Omg that hair, adorable,” another user said.
“What a perfect little angel,” a third fan added.
“Literally the CUTEST baby ever,” another follower wrote.
The new snaps are the first pics of the baby that Alyssa has posted since she shared photos from the hospital nearly two weeks ago. The proud mama has posted some baby snapshots to her Instagram story, including a video of baby Alessi getting her hair washed.
The sweet snaps come amid a difficult time for Alyssa and her boyfriend. Last week, Alex was fired from MTV’s Siesta Key for his alleged past racially insensitive social media behavior. The network also announced that they will limit Alex’s presence in the reality show’s already-filmed episodes.
New mom Alyssa will still be seen on Siesta Key, as a storyline about Alex cheating on her is one of the main arcs for the remainder of the third season. A promo for an upcoming episode featured Alyssa telling her parents she was pregnant, and her mother was shown bursting into tears over the news.
