Serena Williams's Pregnancy Advice For Meghan Markle

Being pregnant for the first time can be scary — How, exactly does the baby fit through there? — even for someone as badass as Serena Williams. In an interview with POPSUGAR, Serena admitted, "I was terrified to push a baby out," so it's no surprise that now she's on the other side as a mom to her beautiful daughter Alexis Olympia, that she has some sage advice for other moms who are pregnant — namely, her friend Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.

It was announced in October that Meghan is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, and even though Meghan's the one expecting, Serena says that Meghan "still gives me more advice," which prompted Serena to give the Duchess some guidance.

After speaking to Meghan recently, Serena recalled to People how the pair's conversation started: "I'm like, 'How are you?' and she's like, 'No, how are you?' and I'm like, 'You're so sweet, but I'm really asking – how are YOU?' I'm like, 'Meghan, stop being so nice . . . you're the pregnant one, aren't you supposed to have hormones, why are you so sweet?' But that's always been her."


However, with such a huge milestone coming for Meghan, Serena shared a nugget of advice for first-time moms — beyond ceasing to be "so nice" — that honestly, everyone could use, pregnant or not: "It will come."

"I don't know what's going to happen, I didn't know how [I was] going to have a baby, and it all came," Serena said. "It's so crazy, I totally changed, and it literally is like a switch. And so, I say that, 'It will come.'"
