Shortly after revealing that she and her partner Alexis Ohanian were with child the greatest athlete of all time Serena Williams sat down with the journalist Gayle King.
Fortunately, their conversation was captured on camera as part of TED2017, and saw the triumphant mother-to-be speak frankly on the racism she faces within the world of tennis, why her relationship with the “geeky” Ohanian surprised her and when she intends to retire.
Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit and is a respected political activist who is worth a reported $9 million.
He also founded Breadpig, an online company that finds or develops, and markets, “geeky” things, and then gives all of the profits to organizations that are in need of funding aid, including the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Room to Read, a program working to construct a primary school in Laos.
Quite interestingly, the couple’s union sparked quite the debate.
