Serena Williams Covers First Badass Women Issue InStyle Magazine
The tennis superstar welcomed her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. last September. She is the perfect example of a mum who can do it all. Serena Williams covers First Badass Women Issue InStyle magazine. She talks winning her 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open in January 2017 while eight weeks pregnant.
She readily accepts this was the most badass thing she’s ever done. Serena, 35, tells InStyle;
“Oh absolutely! I was two months pregnant. I was literally nine weeks by the end of the tournament. Every day that passed I thought, ‘This is a dream.”
“I had a really tough first round and an even tougher second round. I thought, ‘I’m probably going to lose early. That’s OK. I have a good excuse for the first time”
Six months after giving birth, Williams returned to tennis and won her first match. However, she admitted the need to find the balance between motherhood and tennis.
“I’m in the locker room pumping before a match because my boobs are so big. When I pump, they go down a size or two and I go out and play,” she said.
“I sneak away to practice, usually around 8 a.m. The only rule I have at practice is to be done at 1 p.m., because as much as I love tennis, I need to be with her. I want to put her above everything else I’m doing,” she says.“Since she was born, I haven’t been apart from her for more than a day.”
On the possibility of having a second baby with her husband Alexis Ohanian, Williams disclosed she may then quit tennis. She said:
“If I weren’t working, I’d already be pregnant…I don’t know if I want to play if I have another baby…”
