When Serena Williams showed up at the 2023 Met Gala with husband Alexis Ohanian, the fact that Roger Federer was co-chairing the event suddenly seemed to take a backseat. The women’s tennis legend with 23 Grand Slam titles looked incredible in an all-black Gucci gown. However, what was even more incredible was the announcement that the power couple had made on their way to the high-profile fashion event in New York.

It was a move that sent shockwaves through the sporting world, as Olympia became the youngest co-owner in professional sports.

However, what was more significant was the fact that Ohanian and Williams had already named their unborn second child at the time as one of the owners-to-be of the new team.
