They may be total opposites, but Serena Williams says her husband Alexis Ohanian is the perfect man for her! In a recent interview with the New York Times, the tennis star opened up about being in an interracial marriage and said “love truly has no color.”


“I’m an athlete,” she shared. “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,” she said. “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.”

She went on to say that there were other qualities more important to me. “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,” she said. “Alexis is the one I connected with, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

As for as having more kids, Serena says she’s totally down later down the line. “I wasn’t wanting to play tennis,” she said, “I definitely would have talked Alexis into having a baby already.”
