Serena Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, are giving off couple goal vibes in a recently shared Instagram post.

The adorable picture also featured a pink feathery background that complimented Serena's beautiful dress.
While captioning the picture, Ohanian explained that he wished they could attend the annual Met Gala event, which was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He further wrote:
"Please support your local museums when we get back to normal ? @metmuseum."
Fans and loved ones of the couple quickly took to the comment section to express their love and well wishes for the duo. While one user commented: "Perfection," another follower gushed; "Classic. #loveyourwife. Blessings to you both."
Alexis, who shares two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. with Williams, has been quarantining at home with his family. This is in a bid to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
On September 1, 2017, Alexis and Serena welcomed their first child together.
In a January interview with "The Guardian," the "Reddit" co-founder expressed his concerns over the unavailability of paid paternity leave for men in the United States.
Although the 37-year-old was allowed to take time off work following the birth of his daughter in 2018, he understands that the choice is not available for every family. He said;
"I couldn't imagine going through that as a husband and having to decide or even think for a second about choosing between your wife and your career."
Alexis went on to reveal that becoming a father had helped him realize the true importance and practicality of paid paternity leave. This inspires him to advocate for a change continuously.
Ohanian currently works for "Initialized Capital," which he also co-founded. As part of his contribution towards the campaign, Alexis' company offers 16 weeks' paid parental leave for employees.
He believed this would force other companies to include the benefit in their policy if they want to stay relevant in their industries.
On September 1, 2017, Alexis and Serena welcomed their first child together. Two months after, the couple tied the knot at a ceremony in New Orleans.
