The tennis star, 37, shared advice she had for new moms with E! News on Wednesday, April 3, saying, “Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves.”
The Olympian added: “My friend is pregnant, and she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this,’ [and] I just looked at her like, ‘No, she’s not.’ No, you’re not.’ She was like, ‘I need to talk to you about tips,’ because, yes, I had all of those high expectations.”
While Williams may have multiple pregnant friends, it’s possible she was referring to the Suits alum, also 37, when she mentioned a baby girl. The two met in 2010 and have been friends ever since.
The athlete even opened up about her thoughts on Meghan as a mother. “She’ll be the best mom, for sure,” she said at the time.
The Duchess of Sussex told well-wishers in Birkenhead, England, in January that she and the duke, 34, wanted to keep their baby’s sex a surprise, but a source told Us Weekly exclusively in February that the royal couple knows whether they’re having a boy or a girl.

The couple’s pregnancy announcement from Kensington Palace first revealed that their infant was due in the spring, but the Los Angeles native said in Birkenhead that she will give birth in late April or early May.
