American Tennis legend, Serena Williams has revealed that she will not be celebrating her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian’s birthday because of her belief as a Jehovah witness.
Serena made this known while speaking during a press conference at the US Open.
A reporter asked Serena: “Is there a birthday party planned?”
And Serena replied: “Olympia doesn’t celebrate birthdays. We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we don’t do that.”
Though Serena’s husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, did not grow up in a religious household, it is believed that he is now practising with his wife.
Speaking to Vogue last year, Serena said: “Being a Jehovah’s Witness is important to me, but I’ve never really practised it and have been wanting to get into it. Alexis didn’t grow up going to any church, but he’s really receptive and even takes the lead. He puts my needs first.”
