Serena Williams Says Other Moms Helped Her Realize It’s Okay to Miss Some Baby Milestones

Serena Williams may be a champion on the tennis court, but when it comes to motherhood, she’s still learning the ropes.

The superstar athlete and mom to 11-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia sat down with Today’s Stephanie Ruhle recently, and revealed that she’s taken comfort in the feedback she’s received from other moms on social media.

“When I missed Olympia’s walking, I posted about it and so many parents wrote in and said, ‘Don’t worry about it, I missed it too,’ ” Williams, 36, said in an interview that aired on the NBC morning show on Wednesday.

“I didn’t realize that it’s almost more normal to miss it than it is to make it,” she added. “So I really kind of rely on everyone’s help out there. It’s been so, so amazing.”
