Serena Williams has revealed that she donated some of her breast milk to moms in need. 

The 42-year-old told her 17 million Instagram followers that she had leftover milk after a recent trip to New York City. 

"After going through a screening I was able to donate it instead of taking the milk home," she wrote. 

Serena shared a video of all the frozen breast milk she was donating. 

"I know so many amazing women that adopt or are unable to make milk. It felt amazing. BTW Someone out there is getting some super soldier milk," the retired people's champ wrote.
