Serena Williams, who became a mother for the second time this year, said on Instagram* that she donated her breast milk to those who need it.
“I was tested and was able to donate breast milk. I know so many wonderful women who are adopting or who simply don't have milk. It was amazing. Someone will get milk for a super fighter,” she wrote.
According to the 42-year-old athlete, she is very happy to help those “who really need it.” “This will be anonymous, but I’m very happy to just help in some way,” Williams added and showed off a refrigerator with milk stored in bags.
Serena was supported in the comments: many subscribers shared their stories about how they faced a shortage of milk and thanked the athlete for this act.
