Serena Williams finds new doubles partner

American tennis ace Serena Williams, 36, took a new partner for life when she became the wife of Redditt co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 34, on Thursday, November 16.

The couple were married in Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans on Thursday.

The lovely couple was surrounded by their closest family and  some 250 friends, including their adorable 2-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

The guests who arrived to the wedding in limousines were discharged by a tent in front of the building and were hardly evident to waiting reporters and camera men and women. However, it was learned that guests included super-star Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Ciara, Lala, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland and Serena’s sister, Venus.

Williams and the Reddit co-founder began dating in 2015. They announced their engagement last December, sharing the news on Ohanian’s information sharing website.

Serena, the winner of 23 Grand Slam singles, who took a break from the national and international tennis circuit because of her pregnancy, gave birth to the couple’s child, Alexis, on Sept. 1.

Due to her pregnancy, Williams has not been on the professional court since the 2017 Australian Open, which she went on to win in January after finding out she was expecting.

According to reports Williams has indicated she wants to defend her Australian Open title in 2018. She could be back in action in under two months as she attempts to join Margaret Court on 24 Grand Slam singles titles.
