Checkout the billboards Alexis Ohanian used in welcoming Serena Williams back to professional tennis (Photos)

Alexis Ohanian, co-founder and executive chairman of the social news website Reddit, went public with his feelings as he welcomed his wife, Serena Williams to the professional tennis world, after being away for a long time on ‘maternity’ leave.

Sharing photos of the billboard he put up for his wife, Alexis Ohanian disclosed that he designed the billboards himself. Here’s what he wrote;

These just went up on alongside I-10 into Palm Springs. @olympiaohanian & I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself, with some help from Jr.

Serena Williams who disclosed how emotional the billboard post left her, wrote in the comment section of the photos;

Literally I’m crying, this is so sweet. I love you

 The billboard post, is coming few days after the entrepreneur showed off his dad skills with the daughter he shares with tennis legend Serena Williams, 36, in an adorable video posted to the social media site Snapchat.

The tennis GOAT was supported by her hubby, Alexis Ohanian, and their adorable little girl, Alexis Olympia. The family-of-three traveled together to Asheville, N.C., where Serena and her sister, Venus Williams, teamed up for doubles.

The 5-month-old looked precious throughout the weekend, wearing red, white and blue in support of her mama and aunt.

The weekend also marked Serena’s return to competitive tennis since welcoming little Alexis into the world in September. Unfortunately, the Williams sisters lost 6-2 6-3 to Lesley Kerkhove and Demi Schuurs of the Netherlands, but Serena stayed positive.

“I honestly feel better than I thought I was going to feel,” she told reporters. “I feel like I’m on the right track for me.”

She also made sure to have some fun with her daughter, taking a selfie video showing the baby on the sidelines.

The match also marked Serena’s first since the Australian Open last year, which she won…while pregnant.
