Serena Williams' Fiancé Alexis Ohanian Gushes Over Expectant Mama With the Most Loving Message

| Met Gala 2017

With swift moves and impressive serves, Serena Williams is an incredible professional athlete with an extraordinary career. But in the eyes of her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, she is so much more than what audiences and fans see on the tennis court.

On Monday, the stunning couple attended the 2017 Met Gala together and had the chance to be photographed and interviewed by Humans of New York photojournalist, Brandon Stanton.

Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, is clearly smitten with his bride-to-be, telling Stanton “she has biggest heart.”

“Everyone sees her success as an athlete, but all of that is layered on the size of her heart,” he said.

Ohanian went on to say that Williams is the type of person who “gives 100 percent of herself to everything she does: as a friend, as a lover, and soon, as a mother.”

Earlier this month, Williams accidentally announced she was expecting her first child on Snapchat before deleting the pic. She is planning to take maternity leave for the remainder of the 2017 tennis season.
