Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian became engaged in 2016, after dating for around 15 months after meeting in Rome. Ohanian has been spotted at Williams’ games after their engagement was revealed on social media.
Though his invention Reddit is worth billions, Alexis Ohanian is not a billionaire. He sold his interest in the firm in 2006 for a reported $10 million, thus he is no longer the owner. Alexis’s current net worth is considerably lower than Serena’s, at $40 million, whilst Serena is worth over $100 million.
Alexis is most known for co-founding, with his buddy Steve Huffman, the social news aggregation and platform Reddit. He is the co-founder of the website and, until recently, the company’s executive chairman. Reddit’s current CEO is Huffman, although Alexis is no longer involved with the platform. Alexis earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Serena Williams’ husband’s net worth! Is Alexis Ohanian only a millionaire despite being co-founder of Reddit?
Alexis had previously discussed selling Reddit in 2006. He felt a minor sorrow since he had sold the firm when it was still in its infancy and might have carried it further. Alexis would have been close to being a millionaire today if he hadn’t sold Reddit.
“I thought I was getting away with something because, for 16 [months] worth of work, I was getting more money than my parents had made their entire working lives. I wish I’d had an investor tell me there were other options and there would be a path to much greater things given how fast the audience was growing at a time when our engineers had basically stopped working on the product,” Alexis said.
Aside from Reddit, the multi-millionaire has established investing firms. Initialized Capital, which he co-founded in 2012, has invested in notable businesses such as Zeus, Instacart, and Patreon. It also now has more than 200 additional businesses under its wing. Alexis departed Initialized Capital in June 2020, similar to Reddit.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian daughter
Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, Williams and Ohanian’s daughter, was born in September 2017 and is frequently featured in their social media posts. Serena Williams was eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open that year, according to news released in April of that year. Williams also experienced post-pregnancy issues after her daughter’s heart rate plummeted during labour, necessitating an emergency caesarean surgery. The tennis player had a pulmonary embolism, which caused her to be bedridden for six weeks, delaying her return to training.
