WATCH Serena Williams encourages moms to share their stories

Serena Williams has been brutally honest and outspoken about motherhood since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., nearly one year ago.

Now Williams -- who has addressed breastfeeding, postpartum depression and more -- is encouraging other moms to share their personal stories.

“Kids humble us,” Williams, 36, wrote on Instagram Sunday, sharing a story of her daughter throwing up on a plane flight.

“#ThisMama wants to remind all mothers the importance of supporting one another through the highs, lows, laughs and tears,” she wrote. “Share your own stories of motherhood with hashtag #ThisMama. I’d love to hear them!”

They are always staring at me ??
