LONDON- Tennis legend Serena Williams said she does not like being away from her daughter Alexis Olympia but has admitted to that going back to work is “healthy” for herself.

Williams returned to the game after taking off time during her pregnancy and giving birth to Alexis. She married Alexis Ohanian in September 2017 and said being a working mom is “healthy” for her but said she finds it hard to to step away from her daughter’s side for too long.

She said: “I spend so much time with her, every single day. We literally do everything. So I really don’t like being away from her, but I also think it’s healthy, in a way, for me to do what I need to do and be that working mom, and then go back home and be the mom.”

She added,  “I literally sat Olympia in my arms, I talked to her, we prayed about it. I told her, ‘Look, I’m going to stop. Mommy has to do this.’ I cried a little bit not as much as I thought I would.”

She admitted that she becomes upset when it comes time to stop nursing her, she said, “It definitely surprises me. I have this amazing child, all these grand slams … it was all super bonus. I definitely feel a lot less pressure out there but I’m a little bit shocked at how much I almost want that pressure.”
