Nothing says “I love you” quite like four giant billboards erected in your honour by the love of your life. And that’s exactly what Alexis Ohanian did for his tennis champ wife Serena Williams on Feb. 27. The billboards, seen in Palm Springs, read “the greatest momma of all time” and feature adorable photos of their newborn baby Alexis Olympia.
The sweet, over-the-top gesture – which lines the Interstate 10 on the way to Palm Springs – went up on the heels of Serena’s big return to tennis following their wedding and the birth of their adorable little girl on Sept. 1 of last year. The 23-time Grand Slam singles champ had been slated to make her triumphant return at the Australian Open in January, but backed out saying she wasn’t yet ready.
Her Reddit co-founder husband shared photos of the sweet billboards on his Instagram, along with a heartwarming caption: “These just went up alongside I-10 into Palm Springs. @olympiaohanian & I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself, with some help from Jr. #GMOAT”.
While Serena, 36, competed in the Fed Cup in early February, she’ll be seeing these on her drive into the California city when she returns to the Women’s Tennis Association tour next week at the BP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. This year will also see her compete in Miami, Rome, Paris, Madrid and New York – and fans are hoping for some more precious Alexis Olympia Jr. sightings as she nears her first birthday!
While Serena isn’t busy training and competing in her sport of choice, the star is also likely to be preparing for her best friend Meghan Markle ’s big day on May 19, when the former actress will say “I do” to husband-to-be Prince Harry . Only time will tell if the William-Ohanian trio will share photos from Windsor Castle, but either way there’s plenty for Serena fans to look forward to in 2018!
