You'll Totally Relate to the Sweet Message Serena Williams Posted for Her Baby

Serena Williams is every mama gushing over her baby. You have to read the insanely adorable post she dedicated to her child!

Serena Williams may be one of the greatest athletes in the world (need proof? See that time she won a championship while pregnant)—but competing at the highest level in her sport didn't make Serena her strongest self. According to a recent post from Serena, her baby did.

The tennis legend announced her pregnancy in a Snapchat post that's no longer available for viewing, and she revealed that she's already 20 weeks along. Now that the news is out in the open, Serena is shouting from the rooftops about what her baby means to her. 

"My Dearest Baby, You gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can't wait to meet you. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year. But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you.... once again today. On @alexisohanian bday.  from the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one. -Your Mommy," the mama-to-be captioned a selfie.

Her post is one that'll resonate with so many pregnant women and new moms out there. The accomplishments women rack up don't just get wiped out or overshadowed when they become mothers. We need to continue to celebrate our achievements that have nothing to do parenting—along with all the amazing things we accomlish as new mom. We can absolutely understand why even someone like Serena Williams—who has experienced true greatness in so many areas of her life—can feel like the transition to motherhood provides a whole new sense of strength and joy. 

Serena's sweet post is a powerful reminder that while pregnancy can do some pretty crazy things to you, it can also change you in the most wonderful way.
