Serena Williams ties knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian
NEW ORLEANS (Web Desk) – The tennis champion Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tied the knot in New Orleans at the Contemporary Arts Center surrounded by friends and family. And by friends and family we means guests like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Ciara and sister Venus.
The couple was surrounded by a bevy of friends, families and A-listers, including their two-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., as they said their ‘I dos’ in a Beauty and the Beast themed bash at the Contemporary Arts Center.
Kim Kardashian, Venus Williams, Beyonce, and the members of New Edition, who will play a five-song set during the reception, were all spotted arriving at the venue’s VIP entrance for the biggest celebrity wedding in recent years.
Williams and Ohanian, who’ve been linked since 2015, met by chance when he approached her in a hotel in Rome before the Italian Open. After months of dating, the couple returned to that same hotel and Ohanian popped the question.
Within a month or two, Williams learned that she was expecting but kept her pregnancy a secret. She went on to win the Australian Open in January before anyone even got the chance to send her a onesie for the baby.
In April, the tennis star accidentally revealed to the world that she was 20 weeks pregnant via Snapchat, when she intended to only send the photo a friend.
After giving birth in September, the new mom has regularly been sharing updates about family life, like how Ohanian won’t stop buying toys and outfits for their daughter and how she struggles to think about anything else.
