Serena Williams shares emotional breastfeeding tweet

After welcoming her daughter Alexis Olympia three months ago, tennis superstar Serena Williams has proved she’s just like any other new mum, reaching out to other experienced parents online.

First time mum Serena took to Twitter to ask for advice on how long to breastfeed her baby girl.

“Fellow moms: How long did you breastfeed?” the 36-year-old tweeted.

“Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it's time to stop?”

Serena, who tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November shortly after their daughter’s September birth, posted a snap of her cradling her adorable girl.

While Serena is clearly loving her time as a mum, she’s not letting it stand in the way of her incredible tennis career.

Australian Open organisers have revealed the mum has officially entered the competition, which takes place in Melbourne in January.

Serena won the tournament last year while she was secretly eight-weeks pregnant.

"She has got her visa, she has entered, she's practicing, and she probably just needs a bit more space for a bigger entourage," Australian Open's tournament director, Craig Tiley revealed.
