Since getting engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams has posted on the social news website on several significant occasions. Most recently, to celebrate the birth of the engaged couple's first child, Williams wrote an open letter to her mother, Oracene Price. In the Reddit post, Williams marvels at her new baby, she explores the body shaming she has received throughout her career, and she explains how having a daughter of her own made her realize just how amazing her own mother is.
Williams opened the letter by addressing her mother, and expressing how she already sees herself in her baby daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian.
You are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter ?) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don't know how I would react if she has to go through what I've gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.
