The Amazing Love Story Between Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian Is Straight out of a Rom-Com
Tennis superstar Serena Williams and her Internet entrepreneur husband Alexis Ohanian may be an odd pairing but they’ve proven time and again that they’re the perfect match. In the past few years, the power couple has gone through some pretty serious milestones from getting engaged, having a baby to finally tying the knot. This is the romantic story behind how they met and fell in love.
It all began in a five-star hotel in Rome, Italy. It was May of 2015 and both Williams and Ohanian found themselves beside the pool at the Rome Cavalieri Hotel. As the story goes, the Reddit co-founder sat at a table beside where the tennis star was. Williams was initially trying to get him to leave but eventually invited him to sit with her and her friends.
Their worlds couldn’t be more different. In fact, Williams has never even heard of Reddit at the time and Ohanian has never seen the tennis star play. They made it all work though. Soon, they were dating, with the 36-year-old investor attending Williams’ tennis matches. They were pretty private about this at first though.
Starting a Family
Soon after being more public about their relationship, Ohanian proposed to the celebrated athlete at the same place they first met more than a year prior. Their engagement was even announced on Reddit commemorated by a special version of the site’s alien logo. Before long, the couple got another good news.
While competing at the Australian Open in 2017, Williams found out that she was pregnant and went on to win the tournament carrying eight weeks.
She gave birth to a daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., months later. The birth was not an easy one with Williams needing to fight through near-fatal complications after her baby was born.
Tying the Knot
A few months after recovering from Alexis’ birth, the couple finally tied the knot in November 2017. They celebrated their nuptials at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. The wedding reportedly took inspiration from the Disney film ‘Beauty and the Beast’. And now, years later, the couple seems to be going strong with Ohanian consistently showing his support for his athlete wife.
