Fitness inspo alert! Serena Williams doesn’t let her busy schedule as a mom interfere with getting her workouts in. The tennis player has always been extremely committed to health and fitness (she is a professional athlete, after all) and she hasn’t missed a beat since giving birth to her now-15-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia. What’s this gorgeous momma’s secret? Multi-tasking.

Serena gave birth to Alexis on Sept. 1, 2017, and is officially fiercer than ever. She took to Instagram to show that her baby always comes first, even if she’s in the midst of a competition. “As I head into next year it’s not about what we can do it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads,” Serena captioned the sweet photos. “Anything is possible.”

“I am 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,” the athlete continued. “So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do.” We’re definitely feeling inspired over here!

Serena also had a message to all the other hardworking parents out there. “My fellow moms and dads working — or stay home it’s equally as intense — but you inspire me. Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This year is to you!”

The Serena clothing designer has always been a huge cheerleader to other parents, including Kate Middleton. She was asked about which women are on her personal “bada— list” and (not surprisingly) most of the people she named were moms. “Well, obviously Beyoncé. That goes unsaid. Rihanna goes unsaid. Kate Middleton!” she told InStyle. However, the Duchess ended up reigning (pun intended) over the group. “Could you imagine having a baby and then, right after, you put on makeup and go out to greet the public?” Serena continued, “No, and she was…standing! So she’s officially No. 1.”

We love the positivity Serena exudes in her life. Keep it up, momma!
