“Alexis Is The One I Connected With And I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way” – Serena Williams Reveals About Marrying Alexis Ohanian

When Serena Williams was a single woman dating and looking for her soul mate, she never imagined her dream guy would be someone like her now husband, tech co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

 

It wasn’t because they come from two different worlds—he’s a tech millionaire who co-founded Reddit and she’s a 23-time Grand Slam winning tennis superstar—but rather, as she put it, “[I] never thought I would have married a white guy.”

Ahead of the debut of her HBO five-part series, Being Serena, Williams sat down for a new interview with The New York Times and spoke candidly about how she and Ohanian are “a good fit.”

“I’m an athlete,” Williams shared. “He’s a business guy. I’m Black. He’s White. We are totally opposite. I think we just complement each other. I think we understand hard work in different ways.”

Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian opened up about his powerful decision to step away from the board of Reddit

The couple met in May 2015 at the Cavalieri Hotel in Rome. When he sat down at the empty poolside table next to her, Williams recalls trying her best to get him to move, but he didn’t budge and they instead struck up a conversation and hit it off.

In November, they tied the knot in a gorgeous fairytale New Orleans wedding just two months after welcoming their daughter, Alexis Olympia.

Despite their obvious differences, their relationship, Williams believes, is a testament to the power of love.

“Literally all I tell Alexis is, ‘well, you know, there’s such a difference between White people and Black people.’ He always gets to hear about the injustices that happen; that wouldn’t happen if I were White. It’s interesting.

I never thought I would have married a White guy, either, so it just goes to show you that love truly has no color, and it just really goes to show me the importance of what love is.”

She added: “Ultimately I wanted to be with someone who treated me nice, someone who was able to laugh with me and someone who understood my life and someone that loved me…and you know, I’m sure there are other people out there.

But you know, Alexis is the one I connected with, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
