The 36-year-old actress, who is currently dating Prince Harry, has praised her the professional tennis player, who is expecting her first child with her partner Alexis Ohanian, as the "best" and believes the athlete will be a fantastic parent.

Speaking to about the brunette beauty, the 'Suits' star said: "She will be an amazing mom."

And Meghan thinks Serena will make a great parent because she is "so attuned to balancing strength and sensitivity".

Meghan explained: "[Serena will be] the very best, because she is so attuned to balancing strength and sensitivity."

Meghan has also hailed Serena as a great singer on a karaoke machine, and she believes the sportswoman will put her "signature Serena spin" on any lullabies she will sing to her tiny tot.

She added: "Plus, given that she is pretty epic at karaoke, I think she'll put her signature Serena spin on singing lullabies for the baby. I can't wait for that!"

Meghan has considered Serena to be her "confidante" after the pair kept in contact when Meghan was travelling.

Speaking previously, the California-born star said: "She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was travelling, the friend I would rally around her for tennis matches and the down to earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple of weeks ago in Toronto.

"We're both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations - our endless ambition."
