Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian got married in New Orleans last year in November. They met each other for the first time in 2015, which was a lifetime changing period for Serena, who admitted in a recent interview to New York Times that she was surprised to fall in love with a white guy.



Serena has always been supportive for the right defence of black’ people, especially girls. ‘I’m an athlete. 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 said. She added: ‘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.’
