Former world number one Serena Williams donated her break milk to mothers in need during her New York trip. The 42-year-old announced it in a post on her official account on the social media platform Instagram.
“I’m really excited to donate some breast milk that I have left over from my trip in New York, to people who really need it. It’s going to be anonymous, but I am super excited,” she said in a video posted on Instagram. “On a recent trip to NY I had left over breast milk. After going through a screening I was able to donate it instead of taking the milk home.
“I know so many amazing women that adopt or are unable to make milk. It felt amazing. BTW Someone out there is getting some super soldier milk.”
Serena is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of women’s singles tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 23 Grand Slam titles. The Michigan-born ended her career last year in September after struggling with fitness concerns for a long period of time.
