    But she's also mom to the most adorable 2-year-old, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.:

    On Friday the sports icon opened up about the struggles of being a working mom in a candid post, writing, "I am not sure who took this picture but working and being a mom is not easy."

    "We keep going. I am so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out," Serena declared.

    The 38-year-old also revealed that the sweet mommy-daughter snap was unfiltered and featured her with no makeup and without her hair brushed. "#justme," she wrote.
