Pippa Middleton is skipping her sis Kate Middleton and looking across the pond for her pregnancy spirit animal: Serena Williams.
The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who announced her pregnancy early in the year, wrote in her regular column for Waitrose Kitchen, the monthly magazine for the Waitrose chain of British supermarkets, Waitrose that she sees Meghan Markle‘s buddy Williams as exemplifying what she would like to do whilst preggers and afterwords.
“I’ve been a tennis fan since childhood, as a player and spectator, and have been keen to continue playing safely throughout my pregnancy,” she wrote. “Take Serena Williams. She famously proved that women can play a high level of tennis from two months (when she won the 2017 Australian Open) up to eight months.”
She also pointed out Williams’ perseverance as a source for inspiration.
“Few of us can relate to this elite excellence,” she stated. “But if you’re a healthy, well-trained player with an uncomplicated pregnancy there’s no reason why you can’t continue a good level of tennis.”
No lies told here, Pippa!
Daily Mail recently reported that Pippa has decided to continue playing tennis while pregnant. Well we know where she got that idea from…. (smile)
Williams returned to Grand Slam and passed the first round.
