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.

Watch below…

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.

About what?

    The greatest ever! I love Serena, i’m so happy for her. As for those who are questioning her interracial relationship, “Go fk yourself”. Serena has dated a lot of black men, and none of them put a ring on her finger, Alexis did.

    Did any of the rappers like drake that used her for her phat booty…….congratulate her for her child or engagement…where are the tweets and shout outs….. Or did they just fuc and dump her…congratulations to Serena Williams.

      Since when is it not okay for an ex to not communicate you on your engagement? None of us know the details of her past relationships so why are you projecting what you would do in a situation into someone else? What difference would it make if they congratulated her? The people that matter to her congratulated her and that is what is important not ex boyfriends.

    Nothing wrong with her marrying somebody white, but she could have chosen somebody more attractive. Hopefully the child takes after her in the looks department

      Looks fade though regardless of who you marry.
