Serena Williams wants to be a mom again.


The tennis champion had an interview in InStyle and opened up about expanding her family. She just welcomed their daughter, Alexis Olympia, and now wants to be a mother of two, but it would cause her to retire.


"If I weren't working, I'd already be pregnant," she told the magazine. "I dont know if I want to play if I have another baby."

Williams found out she was pregnant during the Australian Open last year and it was a difficult journey for her, especially returning to tennis.


"I had a really tough first round and an even tougher second round," she explained. "I thought, 'I'm probably going to lose early. That's OK. I have a good excuse for the first time.'"


The star athlete wants another child, but she is also very ambitious, previously telling Entertainment Tonight, "I have this undying drive to be the best that I can be. Whether it's [being] a mom or playing tennis or doing my designing. I just want to do the best that I can."
