Serena Williams opens up about her experience with breastfeeding

There will be one building named after 23-time Grand Slam victor Serena Williams, another will be named after two-time Olympic gold medal runner Sebastian Coe and a fitness center will be named after five-time national champion winning coach Mike Krzyzewski.

'Fellow moms: How long did you breastfeed?' Serena wrote. "Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it's time to stop?" I get emotional thinking about weaning all the time. "I didn't intend to go so long, but I breastfeed my oldest for 18 months and my youngest for 13 months".

In September, Williams gave birth to the couple's first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

So, it was fitting that the tennis champion took to social media to crowd source opinions from fellow moms about breastfeeding.
