#SuperMomAlert: Serena Williams, Kareena Kapoor & Other Celebs Who *Aced* Their Pregnancies

It is said that mothers are crafted to perfection and Serena Williams proved it once again. The legendary tennis player, who has been praised as a 'superhuman, super mom' left many women around the world (including Meghan Markle,) in tears with her modest speech on 14th July. She dedicated her performance to all moms.

Serena may have been a runner-up in her latest match but she gave a tough competition to her opponent, Angelique Kerber on the field ten months after giving birth to her baby. Reason? This super mom was seen practising on a tennis court even when she was seven months pregnant. Talk about dedication!

Here's what this champion said in her speech.

Boy, she is a wonderful human being and an epitome of strength!

Working during pregnancy isn't an uncommon phenomenon for women and much like any normal women, celebrities also prefer to continue their physically demanding work while they are pregnant. Here are a few names who never stopped inspiring and encouraging mommies all over the world!    

1. Serena Williams

The tennis star shared a video of her playing in a tennis practice court while she was seven months pregnant as she prepared for Wimbledon tournaments.


Wimbledon got me like: Easy standing drills this morning. Go easy.

2. Gal Gadot

While shooting for Wonder Woman Gal Gadot hid her pregnancy to avoid a different treatment. In a magazine interview, Gal shared how she spent time vomiting in corners and dealing with hormones while shooting for a groundbreaking superwoman movie. She said, "I started to come to set with sunglasses. I had this jug of water with huge pieces of ginger. One of the producers kept on asking. 'Why are you drinking that potato water?' They thought I'd gone Hollywood."

Remember when Pheobe Buffay agreed to carry brother Frank Jr. and his wife Alice's bun in her oven. Yes, that part was added to the script because Lisa Kudrow was pregnant in real life but she chose to continue the shooting and the plot turned out to be one of the funniest parts of Friends.
