Since getting together in 2015, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian have shared many, many cute moments together (and almost as many sweet pics). Here’s a look at some of their greatest pics so far... because for this duo, the best is definitely yet to come.

In May 2015, the couple met in Rome when they were both staying at the Cavalieri Hotel. By December 2016, they were engaged after the Reddit co-founder popped the question at the hotel they met. (What did I say about cute moments?!)

In a 2019 Allure cover story, Serena explained how she fell for Alexis. “Oprah said, ‘Never let anyone dim your light.’ That really stuck with me. Alexis doesn’t dim my light. He doesn’t try to dim my light. He puts me in the light, even if I don’t want to be. He pushes me to further points I never thought about. It always was something that I could see in some relationships — my light would be dimmer. Now I feel like I can shine really bright and still do everything that I want to do,” she said.

The couple welcomed their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, who they call Olympia, in September 2017. Two months later, they got married on Nov. 16, 2017.

Serena, Alexis, and Olympia make for an adorable trio, and the couple has spoken about what it’s like to be parents with such demanding careers.

“Whenever my wife and I are not working and traveling, we make an effort to be focused on one another ... nine out of 10 times when the phone comes out, Olympia always notices it,” Alexis wrote of their family life for ESPN in 2019.

The two regularly supports each other, on and off the court. Back in 2021, Alexis actually attended Serena’s Australian Open game wearing a T-shirt dedicated to his wife’s impressive career. “GREATEST FEMALE ATHLETE,” the shirt read in all-caps, next to a photo of Serena. Note: the word “female” was crossed out, as it should be.

Then, on Aug. 29, Alexis only agreed to record a video for ESPN’s Twitter if they promised to cover more women’s sports. He said in the clip, “I'm recording this for ESPN because they promised me they are going to cover more women's sports. Congratulations, Serena. You changed the world. This is just the start.”

Alexis isn’t the only one to gush over his partner. During a 2021 Q&A with Bumble, Serena opened up about their marriage. "Marriage is not bliss, but it can be if you work at it, she explained.

Later in the video, she added, "I learned that love is an amazing feeling, and if you have an opportunity to feel it, then it's a special thing."
