Game, set, match and championship … Serena Williams just served up a huge wedding ring and won the Grand Slam of life. Or something.
Mailed-in tennis jokes aside, Williams, 36, and new husband Alexis Ohanian, 34, have tied the knot. They are now husband and wife!
Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, and Williams, the greatest tennis star of all time, wed at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.
The Williams-Ohanian wedding ceremony comes just 11 weeks after the duo welcomed their baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on.
They began dating in 2015 and got engaged in 2016.
The wedding did not lack for star power. Beyonce was there. Enough said. So was Kim Kardashian, who is also close with the athlete.
Eva Longoria and José Bastón, and fellow tennis star Caroline Wozniacki with her fiancé, NBA star David Lee, were also among attendees.
They kept the wedding on the DL, as much as one can when Beyonce is coming, but crews were seen setting the scene on Thursday.
Shortly before the big wedding, Williams’ longtime coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, wished the couple a “very happy wedding” on Instagram.
Since they went public with their engagement in December, the celebrities haven’t been shy about showing their love on social media.
Ohanian first hinted at their relationship at the 2015 U.S. Open, when he cheered on Williams and shared an Instagram photo captioned:
“Come at the queen, you best not miss. #USOpen.”
(Williams lost in the semifinals in what was considered one of the biggest upsets of all time, but she remains the GOAT, don’t be mistaken.)
With 23 (!) Grand Slam singles titles to date, her career is already legendary – and now she has a beloved partner to truly share it with.
She penned this poem about his proposal last winter:
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own ‘charming.’”
“Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance,” she wrote. “But by choice.”
“Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
Williams did not reveal what those four words were, but some things speak for themselves … even we can probably piece that together.
Ohanian commented on the post, along with hundreds of other Reddit users, writing, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
So his Reddit fans and community, he added:
“Thank you all for the kind words. Especially from all my Armenian brothers and sisters debating when they can claim Serena as Armenian.”
Williams later gushed about Ohanian at the Australian Open this past January, saying, “He’s incredibly … a really nice person.”
“I think he definitely treats everyone the same, which is really cool to see,” she added, repeating, “really, really nice to see.”
In April, Williams dropped a bombshell by revealing she was 20 weeks pregnant on Snapchat, and the rest is history.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
