The tennis legend, Serena Williams, recently shared a touching experience with her fans on X. The 23-time grand slam champion posted a super cute photo of herself cuddling with Adira River, her 3-month-old baby.
Capturing the close relationship between mother and kid, Williams is shown in the picture holding her infant to her bosom while it is covered in a polka-dot blanket. Alongside the picture, Williams wrote in the caption, “This makes me so happy,” giving readers a feel of the joys she enjoys on a personal level for being a mother.

The post comes after the athlete openly disclosed in an earlier X message that she was “not ok today,” bringing attention to the difficult times that everyone—even famous athletes—can sometimes experience.

Williams, who is married to Alexis Ohanian and has daughters Olympia and Adira, has been candid about the challenges of being a parent. She hilariously contrasted her glitzy 2023 CFDA Awards presentation with the routine job of pumping breast milk in a recent TikTok video, giving a relatable glimpse into the less glamorous side of her existence.
The tennis player has continuously promoted awareness of mental health issues. Not long ago, Williams underlined the need of giving mental health a high priority in an interview with Selena Gomez for the mental health platform Wondermind.
