Alexis Ohanian's Video Tribute To Wife Serena Williams Is A Real Tearjerker

The Reddit cofounder shared the touching montage online ahead of Williams' U.S. Open final match against Naomi Osaka.

Serena Williams takes on Japan’s Naomi Osaka in the U.S. Open final on Saturday, little over a year after nearly dying giving birth to her daughter.

And Williams’ husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, wants the tennis legend to know how proud of her he is. On Friday, he shared a sweet video montage tribute to his wife on Twitter and Instagram.

Check it out here:

“She fought for her life, for our child, for recognition, for equal pay, for women’s rights. She never gives up,” Ohanian captioned the post.

Home video footage from Williams’ time in the hospital is combined with clips of her being interviewed during this year’s U.S. Open. Ohanian said he had the montage made Thursday after her semifinal win over Latvia’s Anastasija Sevastova. The video gave Ohanian’s Twitter followers plenty of feelings:

He shared a similarly touching tribute to Williams online in July, after she lost the Wimbledon final to Germany’s Angelique Kerber.

“Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back,” he captioned the post. “We just wanted her to survive—10 months later, she’s in the #Wimbledon final.”
