Serena Williams posted an inspirational New Year message to mothers and fathers juggling parenthood with work, saying “you inspire me”. The 37-year-old posted a picture of herself for her 10.4 million followers on Instagram, holding her child as she stretched her leg. “It’s not about what we can do it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads,” Serena wrote.
“Anything is possible. I was getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby @olympiaohanian was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love.
“So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do.
“My fellow moms and dads working – or stay home it’s equally as intense – but you inspire me,” she added.
“Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you!”
