Serena Williams' husband put all others to shame by installing 4 giant billboards in California saying she's the 'greatest mother of all time'

  • Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has put other husbands to shame by installing four giant billboards to proclaim wife Serena Williams as the "greatest momma of all time."
  • Flowers are so 2017.


When it comes to romantic gestures, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian may have just served up an ace.

Ohanian, husband of 23-time major tennis champion Serena Williams, installed four giant billboards to "welcome" Williams "back to tennis" by claiming she is "the greatest mother of all time."

Williams was due to return to sport at the Australian Open in January, just four months after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

My baby is 6 months today. So yummy.
She wanted to dress 80's
Welcome home momma
She's like "Mommmmmmmmmmm my friends are looking" #freshfaces
Just how I look at her
When I first saw this @voguemagazine cover it brought tears to my eyes. All Vogue covers are special but to share this one with my beautiful daughter @olympiaohanian also the youngest Vogue cover star makes it moment I will never forget. The article is a must read. Link in bio
Mommy and me
My mommy loves Snapchat
Mama never sleeps. When she does, I go on adventures with daddy. "Come on!"
My final top 10 moment of 2017. Of course includes @olympiaohanian they say save the best for last. I could not choose so I just choose 10 random videos. They all were so cute to me 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️
There are so many reasons to quit, but even more to keep playing. Even if you don’t go pro, sports can teach you so much. So keep playing. Link in bio. #sistersinsweat #gatoradepartner @gatorade
Meet Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. You have to check out link in bio for her amazing journey. Also check out my IG stories 😍😍❤️❤️
We clearly don't take enough family portraits. This one's from the honeymoon. @olympiaohanian was not ready for the snap... 😒 2017 was a year to remember for a lot of reasons (good as well as bad) so that they may all serve as motivation, inspiration, and a compass for what we know to be right. These two women are my everything. And the duty I have to them as a husband and a father is the greatest responsibility I'll have in my life; I'm honored to bear it. And I know I'll always find new ways to keep making you, laugh, @serenawilliams. 2018 is going to be a phenomenal year. And may there be many, many more to come. Wherever you are in the world tonight, I hope you're with people you love.

However, Williams withdrew from the tournament as she was not where she wanted to be. She will instead return to the WTA Tour at the Indian Wells Masters in California, which is scheduled to begin on March 8.

As Williams makes her way to Indian Wells, she will be greeted by the billboards as they are positioned on the part of Interstate-10 that heads into Palm Springs, 25 miles (40 kilometres) from the venue.

Ohanian designed the billboards himself. They feature images of Williams and her daughter together and state she is the "G.M.O.A.T" — the greatest mother of all time.

Click right for all four billboards:

"These just went up on alongside I-10 into Palm Springs," Ohanian said on Instagram. "Olympia Ohanian and I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself, with some help from Jr."

Williams is also due to compete at the Miami Open, the Madrid Open, Rome, the French Open, and the US Open.
