Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian gushes over their daughter Olympia on her 5th birthday

Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams’ daughter Olympia turned five-years-old on Friday, September 2.

To mark the special occasion, the Reddit co-founder penned a sweet and emotional post on Instagram that reflected back on how much she’s changed his life for the better.

‘How are you already? [five-years-old] @olympiaohanian ??’ Ohanian, 39, began in the caption alongside a couple of recent photos of himself and his little girl.

‘I love you more every single day, you’ve made me a better man, and I’m so grateful your mom brought you into this world. I’m gonna Uppy you forever!’

The internet entrepreneur and investor, who also shared a video of Olympia giving him an adorable kiss on his cheek, went on to make a reference to his 776 Fund, the software-enabled venture capital firm that he founded in 2020.

‘I started @776fund thanks to you and it shares your birthday… thanks @katelin_cruse @elisabethgarvin – these last two years have been otherworldly.’

He ended the post: ‘And thank you @christinatosi & @milkbarstore for a very memorable “caking” session.’

Ohanian also paid tribute to Olympia while cheering on his wife as she tried to extend her run at the 2022 US Open this week.

On Friday, as Williams was sweating out on the court in her third round match against Ajla Tomlijanovic, her husband was in the stands wearing a black t-shirt with his daughter’s image on the front of it.

The picture shows the little girl supporting her mom by shouting and pointing at the court during her match on Monday.

Representatives with the US Open shared the comment: ‘Girl dad,’ along with a blue heart emoji, which got a quick response from Ohanian, who readily agreed by writing, ‘Yes.’

The Olympia t-shirt has since caught the attention of many fans who asked if they could buy one, but Ohanian made it clear it would be a one-of-a-kind by tweeting back: ‘1 of 1.’

Ultimately, Williams was beaten by Tomlijanovic, the 46th ranked player, on Friday, which seemingly marks the end of her amazing career.

In August, the California native announced she would be ‘evolving away’ from the game of tennis after the US Open. However, being an ultimate competitor, Williams offered a glimmer of hope that her career may not be over shortly after her defeat, as reported by SI.com.

When asked in her post-match interview if she would contemplate returning, Williams smiled and replied, ‘I don’t think so, but you never know. I don’t know.’

The all-time great, who has won 23 Grand Slam titles during her 27-year career as a pro, turns 41-year-old on September 26.
