Serena Williams may be a superstar athlete, but at the end of the day, she’s just a regular mom trying to get her work done with kids at home. The 23-time Grand Slam champion recently made a makeup tutorial on TikTok, which was unceremoniously interrupted by her 6-year-old daughter Olympia. This hysterical moment is one we can all relate to!
“This is me trying to explain my post, match press conference make up,” the retired tennis star wrote on TikTok. “But of course I got interrupted…. So i did not finish but hey this is mom life.”
In the video, Williams opens up about going from playing a tennis match to a press conference, where she had just five minutes to shower and do her makeup. She does a quick tutorial in “real time” to reveal how she prioritized her routine to look her best in front of the camera. After about two minutes and 21 seconds, Williams says, “Being organized is super important ‘cause it’s like you have three minutes to get to your press conference.”
At this point, she’s putting the finishing touches of her blush. She continues, “And as a mom, I have three minutes before my daughter comes in — and there she is,” Williams adds as Olympia walks past the screen. How did she know she was about to walk in? Probably because moms are always in “ready mode” for their child to need them at any given point. Either way, the accuracy is impressive!
