Professional tennis player Serena Williams and the co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian ‘tied the knot’ in 2017. The couple also welcomed their first baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in the same year. Since then, the family has been happily living in America.

Recently, the power couple celebrated their 4th year marriage anniversary. On the special day, Ohanian shared adorable footage from their marriage day. The pair were dancing together to a romantic song, which Ohanian defined as a nervous moment.

Alexis Ohanian dances with Serena Williams

On their 4th marriage anniversary, Alexis took to Instagram to share a delightful video of their ‘First Dance’ from their wedding day. Serena Williams wore a beautiful white dress, while Ohanian preferred a classic black-white suit.

The dance was beautifully choreographed and executed, highlighting that Serena’s excellent footwork isn’t limited to the tennis courts alone.

The Reddit co-founder wrote on Instagram, “Hey IG squad, here’s some never-before-seen footage from our wedding 4 years ago. I’ve given keynotes to audiences of 10,000s but nothing I’ve ever done was as nerve-wracking as the First Dance. @serenawilliams gave birth (with major complications, nearly dying) only 2 months earlier, so I had no excuse but to deliver. “

Alexis defined this moment as ‘nerve-wrecking’. However, Ohanian received overwhelming love from fans in the comments of his post. Ohanian also mentioned about Serena’s complicated delivery, which took place just two months before the dance, and thus the pressure was on Ohanian here.
