On Monday night Serena tweeted “It’s very weird for me to believe, I have a child. A Kid. I’m a Mom, a real Mom.”
It's very weird for me to believe I have a child… a KID. I'm a mom. A real MOM ❤️❤️❤️

Blake Hannah then responded to Serena by saying “Congrats on becoming a Mom, now be a real mother and stay home with your baby. Quit Tennis while you are a winner and give your daughter a mother.”
The cultural commentator has since been getting heavy backlash for her response to Serena’s tweet.
Some social media users questioned her judgement, however, Hannah defended her opinion by stating that she believes “there is a growing age when the growing child needs Mom, and 3 months maternity leave is not enough, but 5-7 years would be ideal.”
She went further adding that Serena doesn’t need to play tennis forever because she has money and has a rich husband and should focus on not only raising her child but she can start the best tennis school to inspire black girls.
