Speaking to Today Parents, the 23-time grand slam winner opened up about the trials and tribulations of motherhood.

"I think of what they do literally every single day to support their family and to be a rock for their family," she told the outlet during an interview back in 2020. "And it helps me keep going. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think that women are just really amazing."

Williams also expressed her admiration for women who work and also looking after their little ones.

"I don't know how moms do it," she said. "I work a lot, and I can't imagine working a full day like most working women and then go back to their babies. I'm fortunate enough that I have days off, and I get to make my schedule and then can spend the rest of the day with her. And that's still hard."

"The hardest part is walking out of the house while she's crying because she wants to be with me. It's very hard and makes me vulnerable and upset," she said. "Even in Australia [during the Australian Open], my heart was aching when I left the door."

When discussing the differences between what it takes to be an athlete versus a mother, Williams realized that there was only one answer.

"As an athlete, you can't be vulnerable. You have to be strong," she expressed. "As a mom, you're completely vulnerable to everything. And that's what makes it scary."

The 41-year-old has also been pretty vocal about her journey being Olympia's mom on her Instagram.

"I am not sure who took this picture but Working and being a mom is not easy," she wrote in a post from 2020. "I am often exhausted, stressed, and then I go play a professional tennis match. We keep going. I am so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I’m proud to be this baby’s mama @olympiaohanian. #nofilter #nomakeup #nohairbursh lol #justme."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
