Alexis Ohanian, Net Worth, Family, Wiki & Fast facts about Serena Williams’ husband
Alexis Ohanian is best known as Serena Williams husband, but there is more to him than that. Serena is a household name and is known to be one of the greatest tennis players in her time. With her stature, it could be quite difficult for her to find a man who would not cower at her accomplishments, let alone find her match. But she did.

Meet investor, venture capitalist, and entrepreneur Alexis Kerry Ohanian. Born to a German mother and Armenian father in 1983, Alexis is a native New Yorker. He got his degree in history and commerce from the University of Virginia.
What’s his Net Worth?
Alexis’ name may not ring a bell but he is a big name in finance and in IT. He co-founded several start-ups and internet companies. One of the most popular is Reddit.com. Reddit.com alone has a net worth of USD 2 million. After he sold it, he is said to have a net worth of around 9 Million USD.
Alexis his ideas on Politics
Alexis has strong political and social views which he translated into a book, “Without their permission: How the 21st Century will be made, not managed.” He shared his views on internet freedom and transparency in politics so succinctly and plainly that it became a bestseller. His philosophy inspired many others to follow in his footsteps. Another home run for Alexis.
He also produced and starred in a docu-fiction called “The Internet Must Go.” It was released on YouTube. It already reached 250,000 views in two months.
With all his business ventures, he has a net worth of USD 10 million. Though a far cry from his wife’s net worth, he still makes a rather decent living.
How Alexis and Serena met
It was a shocker to many when Alexis and Serena announced their relationship to the public since they moved in different circles. They didn’t have a lot of common friends so many were curious how the two met. They both just came out of a relationship. Then they met in Rome in the spring of 2015. It was not love at first sight story. Both of them did not know much about each other. Serena did not know about Reddit while Alexis never watched Serena play. Serena actually tried to scare Alexis away. Somehow, Alexis persisted and Serena soon relented and they became a couple. They got engaged in December 2016. It was said that for the proposal, Alexis brought Serena to where they first met and recreated their first meeting in Rome. Though Alexis is dubbed the “mayor of the internet,” they never posted anything online about their relationship. They only started to when he popped the question – and she accepted – that they did so.
Their child & their marriage in 2017
A month after proposing, the couple found out that they were expecting. Serena even played during the Australian Open in the first trimester of her pregnancy. She went on to win that tournament that year. In September 2017, little Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. completed the joy of her parents. She was born in Florida and weighed 6 lbs 13 oz. Both Serena and Alexis were on Cloud 9. The round up the circle, the two tied the knot in November 2017 in New Orleans.
Though they do not seem to have a lot in common on the surface, Serena admires Alexis’ advocacies and his passion to promote them. One very close to Alexis’ heart is to bring technology to girls of color. He started a crowdfunding campaign for it called “Black Girls Code.”
A passionate advocate, a forward-thinker, a doting father, and a loving husband, what more could Serena ask for?
