Serena Williams seems to be done with tennis after telling Vogue that she wants to find something else to do with her life. But first, the 40-year-old American tennis star wants to win another US Open title.
But who is Serena’s husband Alexis, how long have they been together, and how much is he worth?
Who is Alexis Ohanian?
Alexis Ohanian is a best-selling author and tech entrepreneur from the United States. He is 39 years old. The best-selling book he wrote in 2013 was called Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed. The father of one was born in 1983 in Brooklyn, New York City, to an Armenian-American father whose family had fled the genocide and a German mother.
Alexis went to school in Ellicot City, Maryland, and then got degrees in both business and history from the University of Virginia in 2005. In addition to his online businesses and writing, he is also a political activist, especially when it comes to the internet. He was called “Mayor of the Internet” because of his fights with US lawmakers over proposed laws that would make it harder to break copyright rules online.
When Did He Co-found Reddit And What Is His Net Worth?
He is best known for helping to start the social news website Reddit. At the age of 22, the 6ft 5 entrepreneur and fellow Virginia graduate Steve Huffman started the now-global brand. On June 23, 2005, it was made public.
The website kept getting better and better, and in 2006, it was bought by Conde Nast, the company that owns Wired, GQ, and Vogue magazines. It was recently worth £407 million and is thought to be the seventh largest website in the United States.
Alexis was still on the board of directors for the site, but he didn’t want to rest on his laurels.
He then started the social business Breadpig in 2007 and helped set up the travel search website Hipmunk in 2010. In the same year, he also helped start the early-stage venture capital firm Initialized Capital.
Forbes says that Ohanian is worth $70 million (£50 million).
When did Alexis Ohanian And Serena Williams Engage?
In December 2016, Alexis and Serena said “I do.” After meeting in Rome, they had been seeing each other in secret for 15 months. The couple told their friends and followers on social media that they were getting married.
The couple also posted a photo of themselves grinning from ear to ear and Serena showing off the beautiful diamond in her engagement ring. Alexis was also seen at the Australian Open cheering for his soon-to-be wife as she played.
The founder of Reddit cheered and looked very proud when his soon-to-be wife beat her rival Belinda Bencic in straight sets.
Serena went on to win the final by beating her sister Venus. This gave her more Grand Slam wins than Steffi Graf and made her the best player of all time.
At the time, she was about eight weeks pregnant.
In a June interview with Vanity Fair, the tennis champion talked about how they met and how she told him she was pregnant by handing him a paper bag with six positive pregnancy tests in it.
When Did Serena Give Birth?
In the middle of April 2017, the tennis star said she was 22 weeks pregnant.
This meant that the baby would be due at the end of August or the beginning of September, and on September 1, the star went into labor. She had a baby girl the same day, and a news producer for America’s WPBF-25 tweeted that both mother and child were “doing well.” On September 13, the tennis star told the world that she and her boyfriend Alexis Ohanian had a baby girl. They named her Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Serena Williams And Alexis Ohanian Got Married When And Where?
On Thursday, November 16, 2017, Alexis married his fiancee Serena. The couple got married at a party in New Orleans that was full of famous people. A source told the Daily Mail, “Serena and Alexis chose the Contemporary Arts Center because of its amazing architecture and history.”
“They have told Preston to fill the hall with crystals and flowers worth tens of thousands of dollars. The hall will look completely different.”
