Serena Williams is a tennis superstar and the top player in the world right now. She has been a household name since the late ’90s and has managed to stay on top through many adversities, including injuries and losing streaks, she has never given up. She is quite amazing to watch and as she climbs to the top and slams every obstacle put in her way. Equally as impressive is her life off the court. Serena is a fashion designer, actress, video vixen and spokesperson for a slew of companies. Even more fascinating is her dating history.
The tennis star recently announced that she is expecting with her fiance Alexis Ohanian. Before settling down with the Reddit founder, Williams definitely dated a few household names.

Alexis Ohanian 2015 – Present
Serena and Alexis kept their relationship under wraps until December 29, 2016, when they became engaged. Now they are expecting a baby! It seems those pesky Drake rumors were not true at all.
As you can see Serena keeps her relationships very close to the vest and there is little to find out about her relationships. It could also be because she’s so busy conquering the tennis world that she’s got very little time to keep us posted on who she is dating. But it looks like she finally is ready to settle down.
