But their relationship transcends a loving mother-daughter bond. Williams is determined to teach her daughter about strength and beauty that trumps good features.

When I tell her she’s beautiful, I want to teach her that she’s beautiful from the inside. Giving is beauty. Being kind and humble is the ultimate beauty. I want her to know that being strong is never easy. Not in this world we are living in.... Standing up for yourself is not going to be easy, but it’s always eventually respected.

The proud mom would have been happy with just about any healthy child, but she's thrilled it turned out to be a girl.
