"I need a Baby 101 class-they don't have one for the women!" "As long as u are born a woman, child or no child you remain a real woman".

They also noted that they shouldn't be considered "less of a woman" for not having children.

Serena Williams is slaying this whole pregnancy thing.

Williams, who has won 23 individual Grand Slam titles, also said she's anxious that childbirth might affect her tennis game. "I don't think watching birthing videos helps", she said. "It's actually a pirate outfit because I couldn't find a '50′s outfit, but I sewed it to make it look like a '50′s outfit". "But I think [giving birth] will give me more strength, if that's possible, and a lot more confidence. I feel like I will be ready for anything".

Some of the stars who attended the blast from the past event include La La Anthony, Eva Longoria, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Serena's sister, Venus.

Despite winning 23 Grand Slams, creating a growing fashion empire, and being one of the rare few to call Beyoncé a friend, Williams still has one area where she lacks expertise.

The tennis pro accidentally referred to Serena's baby as a girl.

In a cover story for Stellar magazine, the tennis star opened up about the significance of having a baby in her life and as a woman.

The 35-year-old, who is due to give birth to her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, next month, has angered fans with the remarks made during an interview with Australian newspaper the Herald Sun.

'Because everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on'.
