At the age of two, Serena Williams’ daughter, Alexis Olympia, is now the youngest owner of a pro sports team. Thanks to her parents — including Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian — Alexis has become a part-owner of the National Women’s Soccer League’s newest team, Angel City.
“As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front-row seat to this revolution,” Ohanian said in a statement. “I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter.”
Many familiar names make up the sizable ownership group for the Los Angeles-based expansion team, including Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Chastain, and former US women’s national soccer team players Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach, among others. The team, going by the interim name of Angel City, will expand to LA in 2022.
