In the video posted to Instagram Wednesday, Serena Williams mentioned that she had extra breast milk after her trip to New York and decided to donate it instead of taking it home.

“After going through a screening I was able to donate it instead of taking the milk home,” she announced to fans. “I know so many amazing women that adopt or are unable to make milk.”

She said the act of kindness “felt amazing.” Not to mention, some babies out there are going to be served a very special Christmas present from Momma Smash.

“BTW, someone out there is getting some super soldier milk,” she boasted.
