Serena Williams is getting candid about being a mom!
The tennis legend, 42, shared a light-hearted TikTok clip of her real-life parenting world Wednesday that opened with her posed in the black sequin gown with puff sleeves she wore to the recent 2023 CFDA Awards.
In a relatable moment for parents everywhere, the camera then switched to an image of her pumping breast milk and letting out a deep sigh.
“What my life is really like… It’s not as glamorous as you think,” the mother-of-two wrote in her caption.
Earlier this month, Williams — who shares daughters Olympia, 6, and three-month-old Adira with tech entrepreneur husband, Alexis Ohanian — revealed that Olympia is successfully “navigating” being an older sister to Adira.
“She loves it,” Williams told Entertainment Tonight at the CFDA Awards. “Adira’s like a tiny little baby, so Olympia just calls her her little sis.”
Per the outlet, Williams explained that Olympia “prayed for a sister” but revealed she herself was a little “worried” ahead of Adira’s arrival.
“I was like, ‘OK, I don’t know if I can like anyone as much as I love Olympia,'” Williams said. “I was really nervous about that. But I feel like it all worked out.”

Despite Williams sharing her reality of motherhood, the star became the first athlete to win the fashion icon honor from the Council of Fashion Designers of America at the CFDA Awards, following in the footsteps of Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and Zendaya.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve used fashion as an outlet to express myself,” Williams told the CFDA ahead of the ceremony while wearing the elegant black dress designed by CFDA Chairman Thom Browne. “Fashion gave me the confidence to step on the court and own who I was, and where I knew I was going,”
