The tennis superstar married the Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, in November 2017. Over the years, the celebrity pair has become one of the most loved couples around the world.

The couple frequently uploads interesting videos of them spending time with their 4-year-old daughter Olympia, who has become a huge social media star. Spectators have often spotted the cute little Olympia sitting in the stands with her father to cheer on her mother during a match.

Meanwhile, Williams hasn’t played since retiring from her first-round match at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. She skipped the US Open citing a torn hamstring and seems unlikely to return before the start of the 2022 season.
