Serena Williams can't handle how nice her friend Meghan Markle is, urges her to 'stop being so sweet'
Meghan's dearest friend, tennis star Serena Williams, has some pointers for her to consider before the arrival of the royal baby
While we all know that the Duchess of Sussex is currently expecting her first child with Prince Harry, it looks like Meghan Markle's dearest friend, tennis star Serena Williams has some pointers for her to consider before the royal baby arrives. The talented athlete gave a small insight into the pregnant Duchess' life at the launch of her Serena clothing line in Miami.
Williams reportedly recounted how Meghan had not changed at all despite becoming royalty after her marriage. "I'm like, 'How are you?' and she’s like, 'No, how are you?' and I’m like, 'You’re so sweet, but I’m really asking – how are YOU?'" she said.
"I’m like, 'Meghan, stop being so nice… you’re the pregnant one, aren’t you supposed to have hormones, why are you so sweet?' But that’s always been her," Williams said of her friend. The tennis legend would definitely be good to take parenting advice from, since she had her first child in September 2017 with husband Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit.
Williams also revealed in due course that although she gives her friend Meghan plenty of advice, the pregnant Duchess still manages to "give me [Serena] more advice." As for a simple but effective tip on pregnancy, Williams says to all the first-time moms, "It will come."
"I don’t know what’s going to happen, I didn’t know how I’m going to have a baby, and it all came," explains Williams. "It’s so crazy, I totally changed, and it literally is like a switch. And so, I say that, 'It will come.'" Back in 2017, before Meghan became British royalty, she had said in an interview how she feels Williams would make a great mom.
"She will be an amazing mom," said Meghan of her dear friend. "The very best, because she is so attuned to balancing strength and sensitivity. Plus, given that she is pretty epic at karaoke, I think she’ll put her signature Serena spin on singing lullabies for the baby. I can’t wait for that!"
Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex has been reading quite a lot about hypnobirthing techniques while on leave, with some of them claiming that Meghan, who is due to give birth in spring next year, might even want to deliver her firstborn at home itself. The Duchess of Sussex is, as one would say, in transit, as she starts preparing for her move from the Kensington Palace to their new home in Frogmore Cottage, Windsor.
And while there is some talk of her giving birth to the child at home, since it's the couple's first kid, there are chances that doctors could highly recommend a hospital birth. However, it is extremely clear that Meghan will not be giving birth to her child in the private £7,500 a night Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, where the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to all three of her children, since she, as well as Prince Harry are looking for more viable options in and around Windsor.
