Serena Williams' Heroes Are Mothers

Serena Williams is often inspired by other mothers and says women raising children are her heroes.

The 38-year-old tennis star is mother to two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia - whom she has with her husband Alexis Ohanian - and says it has made her realise who the real "heroes" in the world are, as she can't believe the amount of work that goes into raising a child.

Speaking to Anna Wintour for TIME, Serena said: "My heroes have changed after having a child. My heroes are moms because women are superheroes. To have a baby and then have to go to work two or three weeks later or work a 9 to 5 ... I'm fortunate to not have to do that."

With a busy tennis career and daughter to raise, Serena believes women who work hard while taking care of young children should be recognised.

"I'm at a loss for words when I think of women who work day in and day out, providing for their families, when I know how hard it is for me to leave my daughter. I never felt that way until I became a mom. I think women need to be recognised," she added.
