Serena Williams' Father-In-Law Chris Ohanian Celebrates His 65th Birthday

Alexis Ohanian shared a sweet post to celebrate his father, Chris Ohanian, who turned 65 recently.

That, however, didn’t stop him from taking to his verified Instagram page to post a picture that showed father and son looking dapper in tuxedos.

Alexis, who took a 16-week paid leave, believes that the time off was necessary as it helped him start his journey as a new father “on the right foot.”

 

Through the caption of the post, the internet entrepreneur explained that he appreciated his father more than the latter would ever know. Alexis also noted that his daughter, Olympia, “can't wait to wake you up the next time she catches you napping.”

The sweet birthday post comes just days after Hollywood Life reported that Serena opened up about Alexis’ shock decision to step down from being on the Reddit board.

Serena, who was proud that her husband made the move with hopes his company will hire a black candidate, wrote on Twitter:

“Having diverse views on any boards is important. So proud of you Alexis. I know Olympia will be too.”

Besides shaking the internet when he announced his decision on June 5 , Alexis also got praised by fans and followers.

The 37-year-old entrepreneur previously got applauded after Oprah Magazine report that he was in full support of men going on paternity leave following the arrival of his daughter.

Alexis and Serena got engaged in December 2016 and walked down the aisle in November 2017 at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

According to Biography, Serena wore a stunning Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen dress for the star-studded event that included Kim Kardashian-West, Beyoncé, and Eva Longoria.

Months before the wedding, the tennis icon hinted that she was pregnant when she posted an image on Snapchat that showed her baby bump with the caption “20 weeks.”

She and Alexis welcomed their daughter, whose full name is Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on September 1, 2017. 

 

The family of three appear to share a close-knit relationship, which they often show off on their different social media pages.
