The countdown is on! With mere days (possibly) until the royal baby’s birth, Serena Williams dished about helping to plan soon-to-be mum Meghan Markle’s baby shower.

In an interview with Business of Fashion, the tennis icon talked parenting, fashion (of course) and got real about planning the stateside royal shower. Even though Williams is a busy working mama with plenty on her plate, she certainly didn’t let her busy schedule get in the way of co-hosting the perfect party.

Williams told Business of Fashion, “Planning something like that takes a lot of effort. I’m a perfectionist, so I’m like, Let’s make it perfect.” The shower took place in Williams’ room at NYC’s The Mark Hotel. And, according to reports, it was fantastically fab.

Pics leaked after the shower showed cute cake pops in stork shapes, bunny cookies, cupcakes, a two-tiered cake and a tower of macarons. Yum!
