Alexis Ohanian, the tech mogul and the co-founder of Reddit is also known by millions of people as Serena Williams‘ husband. Their first meeting in Rome in 2015 was a chance encounter. Ohanian was staying in the same hotel as Williams who was playing the Italian Open. They met near the pool during breakfast where Serena tried to get rid of ‘the stranger’ but he was adamant and was later invited by Serena to watch her match.

The pair have wooed the fans with their adorable love story. Ohanian later proposed to Serena at the same spot as their first meeting in Rome in 2016 and the couple were engaged. A year later, Serena gave birth to a daughter and named her Alexis Olympia, the initials AO are sort of an homage to Serena’s Australian Open 2017 victory while she was pregnant. They tied the knot in a spectacular wedding ceremony in 2017. Ohanian became a huge supporter and fan of Serena after they met.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion, Williams begins the run for her 24th singles Grand Slam, to tie for the highest Grand Slam titles ever.
