Sharapova on the advice she would give to her son
“I do think that being yourself is ultimately the best advice. I’ve tried to carry that with me; I’ve tried to never pretend to be someone that I’m not. I think authenticity—particularly in today’s society where we are bombarded by so many influences—is key.

All these different influences, good and bad, can very quickly make you want to try to be something you’re not. It’s important to know who you are and to find out what it is that you love about yourself, and what it is that you want to say, as opposed to what others would want you to say.

And continue to be curious. I think that’s so important in life. Never be the smartest one in the room, always give yourself room to grow. Those two things are the biggest,” Sharapova told NewBeauty.Sharapova’s baby boy is now four months old.

The first few months can be a bit challenging to a first-time mother but Sharapova has been doing well so far.Going forward, Sharapova is excited about the future and raising a baby boy while also growing her business. “This has literally been the fastest year of my life.

It’s like we blinked, and it’s over. I’m excited about this stage of motherhood. I feel like I’m just getting through the first few months of a little baby’s life. It feels a bit like an alternate reality and now I feel like, ‘Okay, this is life.

He’s here.’ I’m excited to see the next year unfold and to also see how I find my balance with work,” Sharapova said.
