Serena Williams Says Her Heroes Have Changed After Becoming A Mother & Here's Why!

Now that she’s a mother, Serena Williams has a new way of thinking.

During the New York Fashion Week presentation of her jet set-inspired collection for her S by Serena clothing line on Wednesday (February 12), the 38-year-old tennis pro sat down for an intimate conversation with Anna Wintour, where she talked about how becoming a mother to her 2-year-old daughter Olympia has changed the way she approaches work and life.

“Being a mom is super important, but also being a leader so my daughter can look at me and say, ‘This is what my mom did,’” Serena expressed (via Time). “I aspire to do that and I want to be better… it’s really important to me to inspire the next generation because that’s what the future is.”

“My heroes have changed… after having a child, my heroes are moms because women are superheroes,” Serena continued. “To have a baby and then have to go to work two or three weeks later or work a 9-5… I’m fortunate to not have to do that.”

“I’m at a loss for words when I think of women who work day in and day out, providing for their families, when I know how hard it is for me to leave my daughter. I never felt that way until I became a mom,” Serena concluded. “I think women need to be recognized.”

Serena Williams Is Asked About Her Friend Meghan Markle & She Had This to Say In Response

Serena Williams handily beat her first opponent, Russian Anastasia Potapova, in the first round of the Australian Open, but it was her status as good friends with Meghan Markle that reporters were curious about after her match.

“Your good friend, Meghan Markle, who attended your last two slams, and Harry, have taken a move, a stance that many people think is extraordinary and historic. What are your feelings about that? Have you spoken to her?” a reporter asked Serena after her match in a transcript posted by New York Times reporter Ben Rothenberg.

Serena responded, “Yeah. I have absolutely no comments on anything with that. But good try. You tried. You did good.”

If you don’t know, Serena and Meghan go way back and Serena actually hosted Meghan‘s baby shower last year! In fact, it looks like Duchess Kate Middleton understood just how good of friends the pair were when this happened last year.

The 38-year-old tennis pro won her first title since becoming a mom at the 2020 ASB Classic on Sunday (January 12) in Auckland, New Zealand.

Serena defeated fellow American Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4.

Serena‘s last title win was back in January 2017, when she was pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia, 2.

“It feels good,” Serena said afterward, according to CNN. “It’s been a long time. I’ve been waiting two years for this moment. I think you could see the relief on my face…You have to be your biggest cheerleader, especially if you’re feeling you’re not doing everything right — or even if you are doing everything right but things aren’t working out for you.”

After the match, Serena announced that she will be donating the $43,000 prize to the Australian bushfire relief.

Congrats Serena!

Serena Williams poses for a photo with some Star Wars characters during a trip to Walt Disney World on Thursday (September 26) in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The 38-year-old tennis player and husband Alexis Ohanian, 36, took their two-year-old daughter Olympia to the park for the very first time. They got to check out the brand new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge while there.

“It is my daughter’s first trip to Walt Disney World and being a crazy Disney World fan, I’ve literally been waiting on this moment since I was pregnant,” Serena said in an interview at the park. “The last time I came to Walt Disney World in Florida, I was pregnant with her. I’ve been waiting so long, I haven’t been able to come back, so this is like a dream come true. I’m not sure if it’s more for me or for her because she’s only 2. But I feel like she already loves it. She watches all of the Disney films and she’s meeting some of the characters, so it’s cool.”

Serena said that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is “so realistic, I literally feel like I’m in Star Wars, which is kinda scary, but it’s so cool.”
