Alexis Ohanian says he has no downside being referred to as Serena Williams’ husband – “I will be a do-it-yourself billionaire someday”
Roommates, while many celebrities marry someone as famous as they are, some act differently and love someone who is more reserved, like Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian. When Alexis Ohanian replied to a user on Twitter, he made it clear that he has absolutely no problem being known only as the husband of tennis legend Serena Williams.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian have been married for four years, have a daughter (aka Alexis), and seem happier than ever – and Alexis doesn’t care if much of the world is him despite his formidable success in the world as Serena’s husband denotes technology world.
When a fan posted it on Twitter saying, “I love the way you don’t mind them calling you Serena Williams’ husband.”
He replied expertly, writing, “I’ll be a homemade billionaire one day and most people will still know me as Serena’s husband (or Olympia’s father) and that’s fine with me.”
He added even more to his sentiment on Instagram when he took a screenshot of the Twitter exchange and posted it with the caption, “TBH I hope to be known as @olympiaohanian’s dad”.
Reddit co-founder and former board member Alexis stepped down from the board last year because he wanted his seat to be filled by a black candidate.
At the time of his decision, he stated, “I have asked them to fill my place with a black candidate and I will use future profits from my Reddit inventory to serve the black community, mainly to curb racial hatred.”
