Serena Williams‘ husband, Alexis Ohanian’s devotion to women’s sports has rarely been kept hidden from the public lens. The internet mogul previously invested in Angel City FC, which is now valued at $180 million and has been performing brilliantly in the National Women’s Soccer League. However, two important people have inspired Ohanian to invest in the start-up soccer club.

The Reddit co-founder previously revealed how his daughter Olympia’s unwavering support for the USWNT  during the FIFA World Cup influenced his big ‘soccer’ decision. Aside from his little one, there is another person who has inspired Ohanian to invest in Angel City FC, according to his recent disclosures.

The official Twitter page of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team recently shared some pictures of Serena Williams and her family posing with some of the prominent players. Even Alexis Ohanian was there in the stands, as he was sighted donning the jersey of the American soccer star Alex Morgan.

Taking note of these heartfelt pictures, one of the fans was quick to spot the internet mogul’s special appearance alongside his family. In the comment section of the tweet, a user said, “Glad to see @alexisohanian had on the goat @alexmorgan13 jersey.”

It later received a response from Ohanian, who was prompted to open up about how the 34-year-old soccer player has inspired him to make the big ‘soccer’ decision to invest in Angel City FC. He commented, “She’s the reason I got into @NWSL ownership”

Just like her father, Olympia was previously spotted wearing the jersey of Morgan during the FIFA World Cup, and she also received a special response from the USWNT star herself.

During the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Olympia didn’t leave any stone unturned in showcasing her support for the USWNT. While keeping track of her country’s matches on television, the American tennis legend’s daughter was sighted donning an Alex Morgan jersey.

On his Twitter account, Alexis Ohanian shared a video clip of his little one doing a solo run while she was wearing that USWNT jersey. The 34-year-old soccer player couldn’t resist replying to Olympia’s ‘speedy’ moves as she commented, “The speed though”.
