Serena Williams, Alexis Ohanian Strike Sweet Pose with Olympia at Niece’s Derby-Themed Wedding
The former tennis star dressed to the nines to attend her niece Justus Bobbitt’s nuptials to Brandon Salters with her husband Alexis Ohanian, 39, and daughter Olympia, 5. As her daughter wore a pinkish-purple outfit and her own tiny fascinator, Williams, 41, wore a sky blue dress and matching fascinator. Ohanian stood holding a straw hat while wearing a grey suit and a pink bowtie.
J & B’s day at the derby: “We all had much too much fun!” The images from the day were captioned by Williams. Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE’s free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.
Bobbitt is the daughter of Williams’ late sister Yetunde Price, who was tragically killed in Compton on Sept. 14, 2003. Bobbitt and her now-husband got engaged on that date in 2020. The tennis icon has been able to spend more time with Olympia after announcing in August that she was stepping away from the game. She appeared on the PEOPLE Every Day podcast in December and told host Janine Rubenstein that Olympia is “very aware” that her mom is no longer committed to an intense training schedule and is trying to make the most of her newfound free time.
She wants to make sure that I’m aware that I should have time on my hands and I need to spend more time with her,” the 23-time Grand Slam champion said, laughing. “I’m always like, ‘Olympia, I’m not working now.’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, you don’t play tennis!’ She’s like, ‘Yes!’ And I don’t really quite know how to feel about that!” After becoming a lead investor in Angel City FC two years ago, Ohanian detailed how his daughter largely influenced his decision in an Instagram post in December.
“As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my two-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front row seat to this revolution. I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife @serenawilliams and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter @olympiaohanian,” he wrote.
