Tennis star, Serena Williams, says she will not celebrate her daughter’s one-year-old birthday because of her religious beliefs.
Serena gave birth to her daughter, Olympia on September 13 2017.
A reporter asked the tennis legend how she would be celebrating her daughter’s birthday at a press conference at the US Open.
She replied: “Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays. We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that religious holidays such as Christmas and Easter have pagan origins. They do not celebrate birthdays too.
