Serena Williams Daughter, Alexis Olympia, is a Billboard Baby!
As a ‘Welcome Back’ to tennis gift, the 34-year-old Initialized Capital co-founder took over prime advertising billboard space and surprised his wife.
That’s a way to make a comeback!
On Monday when Williams, 36, entered the road leading up to the venue area she was mind-blown by the unexpected gesture from her hubby. Serena will compete in the 2018 BNP Paribas Open which will mark her competitive comeback since welcoming her daughter.

The four billboards feature the couples baby girl Alexis Olympia. The first billboard is of just Alexis and says ‘Greatest’ on the signage. The second featured Serena and her daughter and has ‘Momma’ written on the sign. The third sign is of her tiny tot again with the wording, ‘Of all Time.’ And the last reads ‘Serena Willams G.M.O.A.T. Alexis Jr + Sr,’ (G.M.O.A.T. meaning greatest mother of all time).
Ohanian posted the grand gesture on his Instagram, showing all four billboards. The proud husband wrote, “These just went up on alongside I-10 into Palm Springs. @Olympiaohanian & I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself with some help from Jr.”
The tennis giant posted a video on her social media of the four billboards her husband and baby girl created for her. She gave praise to her two loves writing, “I’m so fortunate to have @alexisohanian and @olympiaohanian by my side for my comeback. I love my surprise so much from them. I feel so special. Love you both.”
Williams has had a much more difficult time returning to her sport than anticipated. After suffering from complications after giving birth to her daughter the tennis champ has struggled with bouncing back quickly. Serena was scheduled to compete in the Australian Open but withdrew 12 days before the start of the competition.
In a statement at the time, she said, “After performing my first match after giving birth I realized that although I am super close I’m not where I personally want to be.”

Now with some time passed hopefully the tennis player is feeling stronger and ready to go out and defend her title. It looks like Serena has a strong and loving support system and we think Alexis should win the title “Husband of the Year.”
