Serena Williams tried to deposit first $1M at bank drive-thru

She was so unphased about the idea of making big money that she would often forget to pick up her prize money.

"I never ever ever felt broke", she told Carter. "That is going to be really important to me".

Tennis superstar Serena Williams is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world, but money has never gotten to her head. As Business Insider first pointed out, after earning her first million, Williams didn't touch any of the money - she deposited it directly into the bank and walked away.

Luckily, when Serena's not around, she has close friend and feminist Andy Murray to have her back.

"I have been really fortunate and I have had a really good pregnancy, and everything has just been really good".

"I'm usually more of a night person but with my pregnancy I wake up in the morning a lot earlier and I go to bed really early, like 9 or 10 p.m., which is really insane for me", she said.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion said she talks and texts daily with Venus but they don't always talk about tennis. "It's hard to watch her because I know her so well, but she's been playing really well".

"I've actually never played for money". Sometimes I am walking in my house, and I'm like, 'I really like being pregnant.' I never thought I would say that. "And I remember I went through the drive-thru to deposit my check, and then they were like, 'I think you need to come in for this, ' and so I ended up going inside ..."

Williams, who is due in September, has stated that she hopes to return to the tennis court by January and plans to juggling her sports career with promoting several of her different partnerships.

She said she is taking her pregnancy "one day at a time" and "not really getting too far ahead of myself" when it comes to preparing.

"Any daughter of mine will have a voice", she said in her interview with Carter.
