While looking to become a mom on her own, Williams revealed that she was “recently re-introduced to a man” by her dentist.

When her dentist said, “There’s someone you should meet,” the lawyer jokingly told him, “‘Whatever, Doctor. I’m trying to get this veneer done.'”

“And it turns out that I had already dated him about six, seven years ago. Who would have thought that?’ she said.

“It’s just that I let go a little bit [pressure], and I feel a lot more comfortable now. I feel less stressed and less pressured,” she added.
