It’s been six years of bliss for Serena Williams and her hubby, Alexis Ohanian, who celebrated their anniversary in fine style.
These days it’s not easy to find power couples – let alone ones that last. But with Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian, we might just have the latest power duo. Serena needs no introduction, as she is widely regarded as one of the best tennis players (and indeed athletes) to ever live. Alexis is a successful techpreneur who co-founded Reddit and now has several of his own businesses. Together, they’ve formed one of the most successful and beautiful couples in mainstream media and are raising a gorgeous family too.
SERENA WILLIAMS AND ALEXIS OHANIAN REACH SIX YEARS
A couple’s sixth wedding anniversary is usually symbolised by iron. This is probably representative of Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s love because it’s been ironclad since day one.
This was epitomised by the beautiful message that Ohanian penned for his wife as they reached this landmark. He wrote on social media, “How did 6 years and 2 kids go by so fast?? I’m trying to be a better man every day. Trying to stop and take more moments to be grateful. Thank you for giving me the ultimate gift: your love and your partnership in creating the most perfect two humans I’ve ever met. Happy anniversary,”
HOW DID THEY MEET?
While Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian might look like the perfect couple now, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight for the two of them. The tennis legend described how they first met at a hotel in Rome. She said to PEOPLE, “This big guy comes and he just plops down at the table next to us, and I’m like, “Huh! All these tables and he’s sitting here?”.
She invited him to join their table and as the rest, as they say, is history. Serena and her tech-mogul hubby have two adorable children who they are raising together.
