Serena Williams Dishes The Best Parenting Advice She's Gotten So Far!

Serena Williams has already learned some important lessons about being a parent and she hasn’t even welcomed her first child yet!

The 35-year-old tennis star, who is expecting a baby with fiance Alexis Ohanian, recently opened up about the lessons she’s learned from her mom.

“In the midst of having a child, it’s like all of the sudden you start thinking about the lessons your parents taught you, especially my mom,” Serena said during her Keynote Speech at the BlogHer Conference.

She continued, “And you start thinking about, ‘Wow, what do I want to raise my kid as?’ And when you’re young and you’re growing up you think your parents may be strict. Then you realize when you’re older and you’re like, could they have been a little stricter? Or should I have done this more?”

“It’s like this is what I want my son or daughter to look like and this is what I want my son or daughter to do. And so I feel like all those lessons [my mom] taught me about being so strong, of proud of who I am, of being able to look anyone in the face and have confidence and speak with so much confidence is something that I really have been able to embrace and would love to teach my kid that,” Serena added.

We know Serena is going to make a great mom!
