Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian continue to serve us couple goals. The two have been pretty open about their relationships, and they are parents to their little daughter, Olympia.
The cutest couple in Hollywood
Alexis Ohanian is known for his heart-warming love gestures for Serena. It has naturally made them the most adorable couple in Hollywood, as everybody idolizes their love bond.
Before her return to the game court again, he decided to offer her love and support by presenting the most unique gift that one could only dream about.
Ohanian designed 4 billboards reading "G.M.O.A.T" – an abbreviation that stands for the 'Greatest Momma of All Time'. He set them up on a California freeway for everyone to see.
Two of the billboards feature the photos of the couple's baby, Alexis Olympia, while the other two showed Serena cradling her daughter in her arms.
Alexis had never seen a single tennis match in his life and hadn't known her to be this famous before they met. Similarly, Serena didn't know the tech-savvy elite until they met in Rome, in May of 2015. She was having breakfast by the pool when fate intervened.
Soon, they became the ultimate love birds, but kept their union private. Until 2016, he asked the 4-word question bending down his knees. and she said "Yes.” Alexis shared the Reddit announcement on Facebook, simply stating:
She said yes.
About a year later, before she had to play at the Australian Open that she planned on winning, came the wonderful news. Serena was doing her hair and makeup for the event, sponsored by the lingerie company, Berlei. On the set, having mild suspicions, she took a pregnancy test, and it was positive.
Their exciting love trail was followed by the wedding in November 2017. And many people got to witness their journey full of laughter, fun, and endless love.
Overcoming their striking differences
She's never imagined marrying a white guy. Alexis was far from what she had expected as her life partner, but he turned out to be her missing puzzle piece. Serena revealed their relationship challenges in her interview with The New York Times, saying:
I’m an athlete and he’s a business guy. I’m black. He’s white. We are totally opposite. I think we just complete each other. I think we understand hard work in different ways.
Serena is a leading tennis player, extending her talents to business, fashion, and philanthropy. And Alexis is a nerdy entrepreneur. This beautiful couple has overcome differences between their opposite personalities, and managed to become 'the perfect match'.
