9 Moms Competed in 2020 US Open Tennis, Mom Victoria Azarenka Wins Runner Up



This year’s US Open featured nine mothers, the most ever in tournament history.

Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Tsvetana Pironkova made the final rounds and Kim Clijsters, Vera Zvonareva, Tatjana Maria, Olga Govortsova, Kateryna Bondarenko and Patricia Maria Tig were formidable opponents in the early rounds.

Williams is featured in a lot of campaigns that celebrate woment’s professional tennis players who are mothers

And this year, there has been a lot of celebration of semi-finalist Azarenka who gave birth of her son, Leo, after winning back to back Australian Opens titles in 2012 and 2013.

She once thought pregnancy would end her career.

When asked about her come back durind the press conference after the 27 seed upset fellow Belarusianto, 5th seed  Aryna Sabalenka , she said:

“Pretty incredible, huh?”

“Well, there is a lot that goes into it in terms of balancing, you know, a lot of things, and juggling two things.

“But identifying myself or other players just as mothers, I think that’s not the only thing that we are. I think we are part of, you know, being a mother, we are also tennis players. We are also women who have dreams and goals and passions.

“So that’s, I think, being a role as a mom. Everybody has their own priority, they have their own list of where they rank being a mother is, but we are not – it’s not just being a mother. Your life doesn’t stop.”

She had custody battles with her son’s dad and had to overcome several injuries and other personal issues to almost triumph once again.

And finally, she has joined Williams as a leader and advocate for fellow female competitors:

Last year, Azarenka and Williams, along with Venus Williams, Johanna Konta and several other stars, successfully campaigned for the introduction of improved ranking protection for expectant mothers playing on the circuit.

Prior to the 2019 season, female players had to return from giving birth or injury within three years to be able to utilize a special ranking for eight tour events in a year.

However, this year, players returning from childbirth or injury can use their previously held ranking to enter up to 12 tournaments during a three-year period.

They will also not be required to face a seeded player in the first round of a tournament. Azarenka said: “We have the power to change the rules and we have done.” The 29-year-old says that “is what [she] wants [her] legacy to be”.

Azarenka, Williams, Clisters and all the moms are proving that mothers can do it all.

Kim Clijsters won three of her 4 Grand Slams after the birth of her child.

Lindsay Davenport won 3 of her 55 Career titles after giving birth to her son.

And Olympic Gold medalist and seven times Grand slam winner, in 1914, Dorothea Lambert Chambers became the first mother to win a Grand Slam crown.

Ciara debuted the video for her latest singe “Rooted” featuring Ester Dean last Thursday at midnight and in it, she appears very pregnant right before giving birth to her third child.

The visuals are stunning and feature dancers donning natural ethnic hairstyles like bantu knots, afros, braids and cornrows and messages of solidarity to the the late John Lewis who recently passed away, the Black Lives Matter movement and Black women and men who died in police encounters in recent and distant past.

The singer, who just gave birth to her third child, but second with husband RussellWilson, said she made the music video days before the baby’s arrival.

That is amazing because if you watch the video linked below, you will she was showing all of her very energetic dance moves and even did a twerk or two!

It is a powerful song and comes on the heels of the release of Beyonce‘s pro-Africa “Black is King” visual album that debuted on Disney Plus earlier in the month. I can dig it.

Her son, Winn Harrison, is featured in mom’sbelly but as are his older siblings, 6-year old Future and 3-year old Sienna who make cameos by mom who is donning a extra large afro, and grills with the word “Melanin” on them.

She is the latest celebrity mom to appear in a music video.

Katy Perry famously revealed her first pregnancy in the video for her song “Never Worn White” in March.  An as we  routinely report over the years as the institutional source of bump watch news on the Internet, Carrie Underwood, Cardi B, Natalie Portman, Beyonce, P!nk, Deborah Cox, and Whitney Houston all were in music videos while expecting.

Fun! Watch!

Expecting: Chrissy Teigen Didn’t Think She Could Get Pregnant ‘Naturally’ Even After Having 2 Kids

While dealing with infertility, Chrissy Teigen waited along time to have her child, weathered through many prying eyes and brushed aside the hurt of getting constant queries from strangers, the media and general public all wanting to know when she would start a family.

After years of fertility, she welcomed her first child, daughter 4-year old Luna with husband singer/songwriter John Legend in 2016 and second, now 2–year old son Miles  in 2018.

Soon, she will be a mom of three, with the upcoming birth of her first child conceived without the aid of in vitro fertilization and science.

The model turned TV host and cook book author announced her pregnancy over the weekend.

In a video posted onTwitter the Lipsync Battle host and Chrissy’s Court ‘judge’ cradled her baby bump in a video posted to social media and said, “Look at this third baby s–t.”

 

Per CNN:

Both of Teigen’s previous pregnancies have been through in vitro fertilization (IVF), she said. She didn’t think she could get pregnant naturally.

This time, though, she was wrong. And she was scared, she said.

“Was pretty positive you shouldn’t get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure,” she said.

“So we prayed to the boob surgery gods that everything would be okay. Went to every appointment terrified. Even without the surgery, I didn’t think I could get pregnant naturally anyway. So the odds just felt…bad.”

So far, things have been going pretty well for the soon-to-be mom of three. But she’s still worried.

“Part of me misses the safety of my perfect embryos, created in their little dish. They felt untouchable and safe. Now I feel a bit…eggshelly,” she said.

Still, she said she hopes her experience getting pregnant naturally will give others, who may have struggled with it in the past, some hope.

Teigen and Legend are already the parents of Luna and Miles, 4 and 2, respectively. Teigen has, in the past, been very open with her struggles getting pregnant, even opening up about her postnatal depression she experienced after giving birth to Luna.

Congrats!
