Serena Williams has been loving every moment of her newfound motherhood after giving birth to her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. earlier this month. While the tennis sensation is swimming in diapers, giggles, and mother-daughter moments, she took a moment to acknowledge her own mother, Oracene Price in a sweet letter.

The letter, which Williams penned on Reddit, was a loving thank you to her mother for showering her in love and molding her into the strong woman that she is today. “I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter) and ,” she wrote. “I don’t know how I would react if she has to go through what I’ve gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.”
