Envy To Who?! Why Serena Williams’ Marriage to Alexis Ohanian Is the Envy of Everyone.. Child Boo & Bye ?

Remember the time Alexis Ohanian commissioned a series of billboards to be set up in Palm Springs, welcoming wife Serena Williams back to competition following an arduous maternity leave? Or when he swept her off to Venice because she mentioned that some pasta might be nice? “She had a craving, so I delivered,” he modestly shared with Glamour

And, of course, there was his display at this year’s U.S. Open in which he trolled his wife’s opponent, Maria Sharapova, exposing his D.A.R.E. t-shirt, a nod to Sharapova’s two-year doping ban, only when it was clear that Williams had cruised to victory. 

Get you a man who can be petty on your behalf. Because snagging a guy like the Reddit cofounder may be too tall an order, the University of Virginia grad so endlessly supportive, he’d likely be quick to remind you he’s the one that scored, being wed to arguably the greatest tennis player in the world and the GMOAT (that’d be the Greatest Momma of All Time) to their 2-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian

Which I guess is the whole point of relationships, searching for that partnership where each half truly believes that they’re getting the better end of the deal. 

Today, the 36-year-old multimillionaire investor and entrepreneur and the 38-year-old, whose major singles titles outnumber everyone else in the sport, are marking just their second wedding anniversary of their fantastical New Orleans vows. But, thanks to his parents, Ohanian says he entered into their relationship four-plus years ago with what he calls “the cheat code for partnership early on.” 

And it had actually little to do with extravagant trips and public displays of infatuation. Because when asked by Glamour to share his wisdom on being that guy, the one unafraid to lean in and make the grand gesture, he said the secret to being romantic was actually much simpler than that. “You have to show up. You have to be supportive. These are the things that matter,” he wrote in his essay, published, appropriately, on Valentine’s Day of this year.

Having met and falling in love over the course of two weeks in Ireland, Anke and Chris Ohanian committed hard, his mother leaving behind her life in Germany to start anew in the United States. “It wasn’t always easy, but my parents were partners in the truest sense,” he wrote. “By watching them up close, I learned what it means to be supportive, how to make compromises without sacrificing yourself, and how to show up in the ways that matter.”

So he was ready when he crossed paths with Williams at the Cavalieri hotel in Rome. Though it may have helped if he’d seen even one moment of tennis in his life.

The athlete was there on business, prepping to play in the Italian Open. And while Ohanian was purportedly in town to speak at the Festival of Media Global conference, he had spent the night before their chance meeting in May 2015 drinking with Kristen Wiig, a friend of his cousin’s he had introduced himself to. He was a wee bit out of sorts when he claimed the table next to Williams, her agent and her pal, one they were hoping to use for other members of her team.
