Serena Williams is one of the greatest female tennis players of all time and shares the honor of that title with her sister, Venus, along with the incredible fact that both are the only black women to have earned a spot on that list of athletic greatness, in this particular sport. This came at no small sacrifice of her personal life which she put on hold to achieve that dream and subsequently set an example to every little girl who looks up to her and realizes they too can break barriers, including her own daughter who she and husband Alexis Ohanian just welcomed into this world on September 1.
However, since that momentous day, the new family has seemingly disappeared from the spotlight, despite every happy reason in the world to be seen – like becoming new parents and husband and wife. Now, we’re learning why they’ve vanished after where they just suddenly surfaced.
November 16th, 2017 was a great day for Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian! The two tied the knot at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans after almost a year-long engagement. Not long after, the husband and wife duo along with their two-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia, boarded a private Jet and set off to the Bahamas!
According to E! Online:
“After tying the knot earlier this month, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian enjoyed some fun in the sun on their honeymoon in the Bahamas.
A source told E! News the tennis pro and Reddit cofounder vacationed at Kamalame Cay, located just off the Andros Great Barrier Reef. According to the insider, the newlyweds stayed in a four-bedroom oceanfront villa, which cost about $35,000 per week. The source said the accommodations were nestled among the resort’s lush greenery and offered numerous perks, including a beachfront terrace overlooking the Atlantic ocean and access to an overwater spa.
The private island also offered the couple several amenities, including white sandy beaches and even a tennis court in case Williams wanted to practice her serve.
The couple seemed to enjoy their time together.
“They just looked like they were having such a great time and madly in love—riding around on the gold part, playing tennis and eating lunch by the pool,” an eyewitness said.
The honeymoon was provided courtesy of Booking. com.
Williams also shared a short video of the couple’s villa on Instagram.
The couple probably needed a little time to relax after planning their star-studded wedding in New Orleans. Celebrity guests included Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Ciara and Eva Longoria.
Before tying the knot, the couple welcomed their first child into the world, a baby girl named Alexis Olympia.”
Clearly, the Newlyweds couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful place to finally kick back as a family. It is still unclear at this time what Serena’s 2018 competing schedule will look like. Here at PS Republic, we want to congratulate Serena and Alexis on their nuptials and the birth of their gorgeous baby girl and wish them the best of luck with the new life ahead of them!
