How Much Older Is Serena Williams Than Her Husband, Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian?

For more than two decades, Serena Williams has been one of the most dominant and recognizable faces in the sport of tennis. Off the court she is a businesswoman, mother, and wife to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.



Fans have become familiar with Ohanian now that he is married to the Queen of the Court and they may know that Williams is older than her hubby. But just how much older? Read on to find out that answer as well as a few other things you might not have known about the couple and their daughter.




Williams didn’t know what Reddit was and Ohanian never watched tennis




The tennis superstar met Ohanian in Rome in 2015 but prior to that, Williams hadn’t heard of the online forum site he co-founded. However, she figured that he would be good to talk to about some tech-related questions she had.



“I was not thinking beyond ‘Yeah sure, I can give you some feedback on your website,’” Ohanian told Vanity Fair.




Even more surprising than Williams not knowing what Reddit was, is the fact that Ohanian had never seen her play tennis before.





“It was literally the sport — even if ESPN was announcing tennis updates, I would just zone out … I really had no respect for tennis,” he admitted.

Ohanian knew so little about the sport that the first Instagram photo he posted of Williams on the court showed her committing a foot fault.

In 2017, they pair tied the knot and welcomed their first child together.
