Who Is Serena Williams Husband Alexis Ohanian, What Is His Net Worth, And When Did He Create Reddit?

SERENA WILLIAMS’ career is over after dropping out of the US Open.

But first, the 40-year-old tennis icon wanted to say goodbye on a high, but lost to Ajla Tomljanovic at Flushing Meadows to end an impressive 27-year career.

But who exactly is her husband Alexis, how long has he been dating Serena and how much is he worth?

Who is Alexis Ohanian?

Alexis Ohanian, 39, is a tech entrepreneur and US bestselling author.

He wrote the bestselling book Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed, which was published in 2013.

The father of one was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1983 to an Armenian-American father – whose family fled the genocide – and a German mother.

Alexis studied in Ellicott City, Maryland, before graduating from the University of Virginia in 2005 with degrees in commerce and history.

In addition to his online and writing endeavors, he is a political activist – specifically on issues related to the world wide web.

He has been dubbed the “mayor of the Internet” after his battles with US lawmakers over bills intended to clamp down on online copyright infringements.

When did he co-found Reddit and what is his net worth?

He is most famous for co-founding the social news site Reddit.

Along with business partner and fellow Virginia graduate Steve Huffman, the 6-foot innovator created the now global name at just 22 years old.

It was officially released on June 23, 2005.

The site gained traction and was eventually purchased by publishing giant Conde Nast – owners of Wired, GQ and Vogue magazines – in 2006.

It was recently valued at £407 million and is considered to be the seventh largest website in the US.

Still a member of the site’s board of directors, Alexis was keen not to rest on his laurels.

He launched social enterprise Breadpig in 2007 and helped create travel search site Hipmunk in 2010, before co-founding venture capital firm Initialized Capital in the same year.

Forbes estimates Ohanian’s net worth at $70 million (£50 million).


When did Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams get engaged?

Alexis and Serena got engaged in December 2016. They had been dating – secretly – for 15 months after they met in Rome.

The couple announced their engagement on their social media.

The lovers also posted a photo of them smiling from ear to ear and Serena showing off a spectacular stone in her diamond engagement ring.

Alexis was also seen cheering for his future wife as she competed in the Australian Open.

The Reddit founder cheered and looked proud when his future wife won in straight sets to defeat rival Belinda Bencic.

Serena triumphed in the final, dispatching her sister Venus to surpass Steffi Graf’s Grand Slam win count and cement her status as the greatest of all time.

And she was about eight weeks pregnant at the time.

The tennis champion gave an interview to Vanity Fair in June sharing the details of how they fell in love, as well as how she told him she was pregnant, handing him a paper bag containing six positive pregnancy tests.

When did Serena give birth?

The tennis legend revealed that she was 22 weeks pregnant in mid-April 2017.

That put the baby’s due date around late August or early September – and just in time, the star went into labor on September 1st.

She gave birth to a baby girl the same day, with America’s WPBF-25 news producer Chris Shepherd tweeting that mother and son were “doing well”.

On September 13, the tennis star revealed that she and her partner Alexis Ohanian gave birth to a baby girl and named her Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

When and where did Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian get married?

Alexis married his fiancee Serena on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

The couple tied the knot at a star-studded party in New Orleans.

A source told the Daily Mail: “Serena and Alexis chose the Center for Contemporary Arts because of its incredible architecture and history.

“They instructed Preston to fill the hall with thousands of dollars worth of crystals and flowers. The hall will be totally transformed.”

What did he say about the controversial cartoon about his wife?

After Serena’s outburst at the US Open, in which she called the referee a “thief” and a “liar”, the Herald-Sun newspaper published a caricature of her.

It presented Serena Williams as an angry baby with exaggerated features and immediately caused an outcry with critics calling him a racist.

The paper ran it again and Alexis has now described him as “blatantly racist and misogynistic”.
