Serena Williams happy for Meghan Markle

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is “super happy” for her “incredibly nice” friend Meghan Markle, who will marry Prince Harry next month.
The tennis star has praised the former ‘Suits’ star as a “great girl” and couldn’t be more thrilled for her pal ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry next month.

Serena said: “I’m obviously super happy for her. She’s such a great girl and she is incredibly nice and I couldn’t be happier for her.”

Last year, the 36-year-old sportswoman married Alexis Ohanian and she is pleased to have such a “super supportive” spouse.

Speaking on the red carpet at the premiere of her documentary ‘Being Serena’, she told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “He is super supportive and has always here for me. You know, all of my friends are, and it means a lot to me.”

The couple have a seven-month-old daughter, Olympia, and Serena finds the “most rewarding” part of being a parent is when the tot smiles at her.

She said: “She doesn’t have any teeth, and she’s seven months, so it’s like I get to see her toothless smile and it makes me so happy.”

Pregnancy made the tennis champion take over a year out from competing and she has admitted it was gruelling preparing to make her return to the court earlier this year.

She said: “Sometimes, when I’m out there, it’s incredibly hard. It’s incredibly difficult and there’s moments where I’m like, ‘I don’t know if this is ever gonna happen. But it does and I keep going and I keep trying to make it.”

Meghan, 36, has previously spoken about her close friendship with Serena.

In her now-deleted blog, The Tig, she wrote: “She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was travelling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down to earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto.”
