Serena Williams has admitted that she never thought she would marry a white guy. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Serena said of her husband, Alexis Ohania Sr. She said, “Ultimately I wanted to be with someone who treated me nice, someone who was able to laugh with me and someone who understood my life and someone that loved me. And you know, I’m sure there’s other people out there [pauses and laughs]. But you know, Alexis is the one I connected with, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

  • She also spoke on being in an interracial marriage, saying, “I’m an athlete. He’s a business guy. I’m black. He’s white. We are totally opposite. I think we just complement each other. I think we understand hard work in different ways. Literally all I tell Alexis is, ‘well, you know, there’s such a difference between white people and black people.’ He always gets to hear about the injustices that happen; that wouldn’t happen if I were white. It’s interesting. I never thought I would have married a white guy, either, so it just goes to show you that love truly has no color, and it just really goes to show me the importance of what love is.”
