Serena Williams Marries Millionaire Alexis Ohanian

SERENA Williams married her millionaire fiance Alexis Ohanian in a lavish ceremony in New Orleans in front of A-list guests including Beyonce and Kim Kardashian.

The tennis champ, 36, threw a Beauty and the Beast-themed bash and held a cocktail reception in the street outside the venue.

The nuptials were shrouded in secrecy, and even A-list attendees including Jay Z, Beyonce and Kim didn’t find out the exact details until the morning of the wedding.

It was held at the city’s historic Contemporary Arts Center last night and veteran boyband New Edition were reportedly booked to play a set at the reception.

Other guests included actress Eva Longoria, who attended with her husband Jose Baston.

She arrived in grey tracksuit bottoms and an over-sized denim coat, which she swapped for a chic black dress before being driven to the wedding.

Serena’s sister Venus was among the guests along with her daughter Serena’s two-month-old daughter Alexis.
