Serena Williams has been a role model to women across the world for decades, and now, she’s thanking the person who taught her everything she knows about strength – her mom. Since welcoming her first child almost three weeks ago, the tennis champion has learned so much about motherhood, and it has her thinking about the way she was raised. On Tuesday, Serena posted an adorable photo of her daughter, Alexis, flexing her strong mini biceps (just like Mom’s), and she reflected on her own journey to strength. (Seriously, did that baby lift weights in the womb?!)

Serena wrote an emotional letter to her mother, Oracene Price, praising her for teaching her what it means to be a strong, black woman. “I’m not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman,” she wrote on Reddit. “I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. We don’t all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud!”

It’s hard to believe that after all the incredible things Serena’s accomplished, people have the nerve to critique her appearance, but it’s made her who she is, and Serena said she will raise her baby girl with the same empowering mentality she learned from her mother. Read her full note below.

Serena Williams’s Reason For Thinking She’s Having a Girl Is Really Badass

August 2, 2017

Serena Williams and her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, announced their pregnancy back in April, but the two have decided not to find out the sex of their baby until the little one’s arrival. Despite their dedication to being surprised, Alexis revealed they do have some theories about their baby during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, and one of them is pretty amazing. Watch the video above to find out why Serena thinks she’s having a girl.

Oops! Serena Williams’s Pregnancy Announcement Was Actually an Accident

April 26, 2017

Serena Williams got candid with Gayle King about her pregnancy and the future of her tennis career during Tuesday’s Ted Talks conference in Canada. The tennis champ – who is expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian – revealed that her baby bump Snapchat photo was actually sent out to the world by accident. “It was an accident. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m going,” Serena explained. “I didn’t tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I’d been saving it. On social media, you press the wrong button and . . . 30 minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’ But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to share].” Still, that hasn’t stopped her from documenting her pregnancy journey. “Every week I just take a picture and save it and I’ve been so good about it and this was the one time I slipped, but it’s OK,” she said.

Serena also touched on the future of her tennis career once the baby arrives, saying, “Roger Federer is older than me and he’s still winning everything. My baby’s going to be in the stands, hopefully cheering for me.” Serena recently returned from a romantic vacation in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, with the Reddit cofounder, and while there, she penned a touching letter for her baby on Instagram. “My Dearest Baby,” she captioned a selfie showing off her growing tummy. “You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can’t wait to meet you.”

Serena Williams can’t wait to be a mom. A few days after the superstar tennis champion announced she and fiancé Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child together, she penned a touching note to her baby on Instagram.

“My Dearest Baby,” she captioned a selfie showing off her growing tummy. “You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can’t wait to meet you. I can’t wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you…. once again today. On @alexisohanian bday. 😉 from the world’s oldest number one to the world’s youngest number one. – Your Mommy”

Serena, 35, is currently on a romantic babymoon in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, with the Reddit cofounder, who popped the question back in December. In a now-deleted Snapchat, Serena revealed that she’s 20 weeks along, and her rep confirmed to POPSUGAR that she’s “expecting a baby this Fall.”
