Serena Williams shares why daughter Olympia is wild

In an interview to Parents.com, Serena Williams commented on why she considers her almost two-year-old daughter Olympia a wild child. The American said: "I think [wild] is great, I think it's exciting. I love the use of that word, because it's active, it's learning.

There's so much more to it. ... I've learned that 75% of parents believe that society sees a wild child as a bad thing, but wild is actually a good thing. It means curious, spirited, growing." Williams believes Olympia is learning more and more every day: "Today, she was so happy because she's starting to recognize the music and the songs.

She was sprinting across the room and jumped on the couch. She bumped her head on the chair and kept going. I mean, this kid is just being the wild child that she is. I love that about her, but it makes every single day exciting, and tiring, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

When she was born, even when she came out, she was looking at everything. She had such a strong neck [even when she was] so young. She's just as active now as she was mentally then. Mentally, she was looking everywhere, and she wanted to be a part of something, and she would stare at our face with such intent eyes." Williams will soon be back on Tour as she will be competing in Toronto and Cincinnati prior to the US Open.
