It’s what every new mom fears as their maternity leave ends and they have to go back to the real world.

With a busy schedule and social life to revive, most parents would probably enjoy spending some time away from their child in order to mix with other adults.

This is, however, not the case for Serena Williams, who confirmed that since the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia in September 2017 – she has not spent a single day away from her.

Taking to twitter to post a picture of her and the ten-month-old on a plane, the 23-time Grand Slam champion captioned it, “319 days since I gave birth to this amazing baby @OlympiaOhanian I’ve spent 319 of those days with her. I’m so fortunate.”
