Williams told Vogue she had an emergency cesarean section after the baby's heart rate fell dangerously low during contractions. The surgery went well but the next day, while still at the hospital, she felt short of breath due to her history of blood clots. They discovered tiny blood clots on her lungs and she was quickly given the medication.
More complications followed as intense coughing caused her C-section wound to open and a hematoma was found in her abdomen.
"Knowing I've got this handsome baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match", she explained. "No one talks about the low moments-the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry", she said.
With already 206K followers on Instagram, it is clear that baby Olympia is a star alongside her mommy.
Williams initially wanted to return to the Australian Open later this month - which she won previous year while pregnant - but withdrew last week. "Knowing I've got this handsome baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match. Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, 'Why do I feel so sad when I have a lovely baby?' The emotions are insane". The emotions are insane'. She said she plans on returning to the court for the Indian Wells in March.
"To be honest, there's something really attractive about the idea of moving to San Francisco and just being a mom", she says. "I'm well aware of the record books, unfortunately".
At one point she even twerks on the steps of the private jet before being shown dancing on the ground and in the plane. I'm not sure why we think that way, but I know that we're sometimes taught to not dream as big as men, not to believe we can be a president or a CEO, when in the same household, a male child is told he can be anything he wants.
"I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian said.
