Yes, Alexis Ohanian might have co-founded Reddit, but when you're married to the greatest athlete of all time, Serena Williams, your own career tends to command a little less time in the spotlight. And that's just fine with Ohanian, he revealed on social media this week.

Responding to a tweet reading, "I love how you don't mind that they call you Serena Williams' husband," the internet entrepreneur wrote, "I'll be a self-made billionaire one day and most people will still know me as Serena's husband (or Olympia's dad) and that's fine by me." He shared a screenshot of his tweet on Instagram, adding the caption, "TBH I'm hoping to be known as "@olympiaohanian's papa." All of this! I love it!

Ohanian, you'll be aware, is one of Williams' biggest cheerleaders, recently supporting her at the Australian Open in a truly exceptional t-shirt (opens in new tab) dedicated to his wife. The shirt read, "GREATEST FEMALE ATHLETE," with the "female" modifier crossed out, accurately reflecting Williams' GOAT status.

Williams recently shared the secrets to a happy marriage (opens in new tab) in a Q&A with Bumble. Asked, "What were you surprised to learn about marriage?" she replied, "Marriage is not bliss, but it can be if you work at it." Responding to the following question, "What have you learned about love?" Williams said, "I learned that love is an amazing feeling, and if you have an opportunity to feel it, then it's a special thing." Lovely!
