Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, proudly carried their daughter Olympia in a sweet photo on Instagram. The doting father also wore a shirt in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.


Amid the emotional turmoil over the weekend, Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian is doing what matters the most— keeping loved ones close.

The Reddit co-founder shared a heartwarming photo of him holding their daughter Olympia in his arms. The adorable tot looked cute in a white shirt with a print matched with blue and cream pants.

Her hair was braided into two pigtails in front and adorned with pink hairbands while her finger was in her father’s mouth. Ohanian, on the other hand, had a somber look as he bowed his head while wearing a shirt in support of the Black Lives Matter. 

The black shirt had the words “arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor on it. The image which was taken in a tennis court with the seats in view was captioned:

“Hugging loved ones even harder today.”


Many fans agreed with the message in the touching image, praising Ohanian for being a beacon of hope in such dark times. Others praised the tech guru for lending his voice to the cause of racial injustice.

Williams and Ohanian, who have been married for almost three years, have a shared love of activism as they publicly fight for equality for women and people of color.

The power couple never fails to donate or invest their resources to make the world a better place for their women all over the world, alongside their little girl. This was the case when they bought a stake in the upcoming National Women’s Soccer League franchise, Angel City.


The doting parents took their commitment to give women a seat at the table to another level when they made Olympia part of the founders. They bought their 2½-year-old daughter a stake in the expansion team. 

Williams shared the proud news via a post on her Instagram story and Ohanian’s Instagram page. The Los Angeles-based team has a majority of female founders which include Natalie Portman, Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Garner, Julie Uhrman, and other former female football players.



Earlier this month, Ohanian and Olympia made headlines when they proudly supported Williams at the WTA tennis tournament in Kentucky. The lovely father-daughter duo watched from the stands as the 38-year-old beat Bernarda Pera with 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.  

Unfortunately, the 23-time Grand Slam winner was kicked out of the competition after Shelby Rogers defeated her in the quarterfinals.
