Serena Williams says giving birth to daughter made her stronger: “I happy it happened to me”

Serena Williams thanked her fans on Facebook Monday after she opened up about her daughter’s labor and the difficult complication followed afterward.

According to PEOPLE, the tennis star, 36, shared an adorable new video of her 4-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia as well as a message about her birth story.

“I didn’t expect that sharing our family’s story of Olympia’s birth and all of the complications after giving birth would start such an outpouring of discussion from women especially black women who have faced similar complications and women whose problems go unaddressed,” Williams wrote.
