Pippa Middleton Admits Shes Been Looking Up to *This* Celebrity Throughout Her First Pregnancy

Pippa Middleton is channeling an unlikely celebrity during her first pregnancy, and (gasp!) it’s not her sister, Kate Middleton.

Pippa recently wrote a guest column for a U.K. publication, Waitrose, and revealed that she’s taking pregnancy inspo from one of Meghan Markle’s closest pals: Serena Williams.

She wrote, “I’ve been a tennis fan since childhood, as a player and spectator, and have been keen to continue playing safely throughout my pregnancy. Take Serena Williams. She famously proved that women can play a high level of tennis from two months (when she won the 2017 Australian Open) up to eight months.” Badass indeed.

The 34-year-old went on to discuss Williams’s perseverance as a soon-to-be mother, adding, “Few of us can relate to this elite excellence. But if you’re a healthy, well-trained player with an uncomplicated pregnancy there’s no reason why you can’t continue a good level of tennis.”

We couldn’t agree more, Pippa.
