Recently, Alexis Ohanian tweeted about an interesting episode with his daughter. The Reddit co-founder mentioned how Olympia had woken up in the middle of a bad dream and been terrified by it.

Watching her visibly frightened by the dream, Ohanian Sr. calmed her down and put her back to sleep. Hailing the incident as a big blessing of being a father, Alexis Ohanian made sure of informing his adorable daughter of being in safe hands.

“One of the best feelings in the world is soothing your daughter after she’s startled awake by a bad dream; letting her know she’s safe, and she goes right back to sleep. Peace upon her,” tweeted Ohanian Sr.

Apart from being a doting father, Ohanian Sr. is extremely supportive of his wife, Serena. He is often spotted in the stands cheering on Williams alongside their endearing daughter.

A few weeks back, Williams announced her withdrawal from the next month’s Madrid Open. So far in the 2021 season, Williams has only played at the Yarra Valley Classic and the Australian Open, where she lost in the semifinals.

Since then, Williams hasn’t played a single match and pulled out from the 2021 Miami Open last month because of oral surgery. Hopefully, Williams will compete in a few clay-court tournaments before the start of Roland Garros, which begins on May 31.
