Mother-of-one, Serena Williams went down memory lane, with her latest post on Instagram, by sharing a picture of herself holding her baby bump.

 

 
Serena Williams’ daughter, Alexis Olympia, was born almost three years ago, bringing joy to her parents. Her proud mother went back to the days leading to her birth in a sweet Instagram post she made on Thursday.

Serena shared a picture of herself in a black robe, wearing a bra and shorts. The tennis star exposed her big baby bump, with her right hand embracing her unborn child.

In the caption to the post, the tennis star recalled the way she felt while pregnant with Olympia and compared her situation to that of many expectant mothers out there.

Serena said that she remembered feeling very excited and nervous about her pregnancy, and poured her heart out to all expectant parents who might not know where to turn for help in preparation for the big change in their lives. She added:

“With many in-person childbirth classes canceled, I’m excited to share how @PampersUS is helping…”

Accompanying the tennis star’s post was a video of the Pampers US free childbirth education series. Serena also clarified that her baby bump picture was taken when she was pregnant with Olympia.

Being a mother of a child as active as Olympia and maintaining excellence in a sport as competitive as tennis can be difficult to manage for some, but not Serena.

The tennis icon spoke of her desire to reach 25 Grand Slam wins.

Williams has excelled at both and continues to do so despite the heavy demands she faces being a wife, a mother, and a top athlete. Many have wondered what has kept her going.

In an exclusive interview with TODAY Parents, the tennis star said that whenever she gets run down by the demands of work and being a mother, she always gained inspiration from the average working mom. Serena said:

“I think of what they do literally every single day…And it helps me keep going.”

The proud mother added that not a day went by without her thinking that women were amazing. Despite having a demanding career, Serena feels lucky to be able to make her schedule and have a lot of flexibility around competitions.

With that flexibility, she has days off, and a schedule that allows her to spend the rest of the day with her adorable daughter, though she added that it was still hard that way.
