Besides being a brilliant entrepreneur, Alexis Ohanian is a doting father to little Olympia whom he shares with tennis superstar Serena Williams.


Alexis Ohanian continues to impress fans with his fun parenting after he posted a photo that shows a pancake designed to look like Spider-Man's head positioned in the foreground to cover his daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.'s head. He captioned the playful photo:

"With great pancake power comes great responsibility."

While her face is covered, 3-year-old Olympia still looked fashionable as she rocked a white shirt and skirt. The photo quickly amassed more than 16,000 likes on Instagram in just a day.

Fans flocked to the comments section to admire the 37-year-old Reddit co-founder for his hands-on parenting. One wrote that he is a great dad and wished him and his family well.

Another fan urged ladies to find a man like Ohanian and not to settle for less. Someone else chimed in to say that Olympia might as well give her dad the "Best Pa" award.



In May 2019, Ohanian was praised for breaking gender stereotypes by joining Facebook groups for individuals interested in styling natural hair. He did it to get better at doing Olympia's hair.

Another moment that showed how devoted a father Ohanian is was when he wore a face mask with "Girl Dad" written on it as they went out to support Williams at the US Open in September.

Like Ohanian, Williams is also enjoying parenthood to the fullest.



Ohanian does not stop at enjoying pancakes with his daughter and wearing a sweetly designed mask. He also wants other fathers to enjoy more time with their family.

In 2019, the investor voiced support for increasing paternity leave, saying that doing so will have a great impact on working mothers. He himself took 16 weeks of paternity leave when Williams gave birth to Olympia in September 2017.

Devoted fans look up to Ohanian and his wife for always dedicating quality time with their daughter. The family is a source of inspiration for many people.

Like Ohanian, Williams is also enjoying parenthood to the fullest. She is admired for spending quality time with Olympia, joining the little girl during her playtime.


The world-renowned athlete often shares the toddler's fun activities on social media. In one memorable snap, Olympia is seen enjoying the pool in a floral-printed swimsuit.

Olympia has also been a supportive daughter to Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion. She cheered for her mother at this year's US Open alongside her father.

The father-daughter duo did not let the ongoing pandemic stop them from going out to support Williams. But they, of course, followed social distancing protocols, sitting on empty stands.
