Mother's milk is an elixir of life for the little ones as it is packed with rich nutrients. It's 'liquid gold' for a reason. The donation of breast milk is quite a traditional practice that has been enriching the lives of several children who are adopted or whose mothers can not make enough milk. Recently, tennis superstar Serena Williams revealed on Instagram how amazing it felt to donate her breast milk. With over 3M views, her reel garnered love and support from people all over the world and many were too thrilled for the babies that were going to receive the 'soldier milk.'

Six years after she had her first daughter, Olympia, the sports icon recently welcomed her second daughter, Adira River Ohanian. Williams, who is breastfeeding her newborn, gave us a peek into her stored breast milk that was ready to be donated. "On a recent trip to NY, I had leftover breast milk. After going through a screening, I was able to donate it instead of taking the milk home," Williams wrote in the caption.

As she revealed the frozen breast milk in the video, the tennis star said that the donation was going to be anonymous and that she was 'super excited' about helping someone in need. Williams mentioned, "I know so many amazing women that adopt or are unable to make milk. It felt amazing," and added teasingly, "By the way, someone out there is getting some super soldier milk."

People expressed their appreciation to the tennis icon. Some even humorously quipped how lucky the babies would be upon receiving the milk, mainly because Williams is one of the fittest and strongest sportswomen who consciously follow a healthy diet. "The kid will never hear the end of it. 'I gave you Serena Williams milk and you only got a B+?' 'I gave you Serena Williams milk and you only got the bronze medal?' 'I gave you Serena Williams milk and you won't do your chores? Joking aside, that is a wonderful gift," commented @bernadinebedneau. "I'm keeping my eye out for the next phenomenon tennis player because they got your baby milk. It's great that you were thinking about other babies in this way," wrote @ttbtrini. "As a NICU mom of twins who needed donor milk while waiting for mine to come in, thank you for donating," commented @katherineantoinette.

Barely 2 months after welcoming her second child with husband Alexis Ohanian, Williams started focusing on her fitness again while not compromising her breastfeeding. Posting a puzzling photo of her and Olympia on Instagram, Williams shared how she was back in the fitness game. "Olympia watching me try to get my ab muscles working again. Here comes fitness!" the tennis star captioned the picture.

Though new mothers are often advised to rest as long as they can, a minimal amount of fitness routine can make them healthier and stronger. Williams is undoubtedly an inspiration to mothers who have just given birth not only in becoming stronger but also in breast milk donation. Motherhood is indeed a wonderful gift.
