According to People magazine, tennis superstar Serena Williams, 36, and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 34, have said “I do”.

The pair, who got engaged in December 2016 and welcomed baby girl Alexis in September this year, reportedly tied the knot at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

The event was a star-studded affair with guests like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria and fellow tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

Williams and Ohanian reportedly visited New Orleans in October to scout for potential venues, and preparation for the nuptials – floral arrangements and white tents being installed - did not go unnoticed by residents.  

If there had been any doubt before, Williams’ longtime coach, Patrick Mouratoglou erased it when he wished the pair a “very happy wedding” on Instagram.
