The Reddit co-founder shared a photo from Williams’ Vogue photo shoot on Instagram Thursday with their 4-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia, and began his caption with a sweet note, writing, “This one is going on the desk at work.”
Ohanian, 34, continued, “I can’t imagine life without these two,” referring to Vogue’s February cover story in which Williams, 36, described her difficult experience giving birth to her first child and the subsequent major health complications which followed
Ohanian continued, “This ordeal, as well as the weeks and months after, has made me an even bigger advocate for paid parental leave (not just for my employees — men & women alike — but for all). We’re blessed in a lot of ways and I couldn’t imagine a new parent going through all of that without all the support, financial security, and flexibility we had.”
Williams revealed to Vogue that her plummeting heart rate reached dangerously low levels during contractions, leading to an emergency cesarean section.
Though the surgery went well, what followed was a six-day battle with a pulmonary embolism that led to multiple surgeries and a handful of additional medical troubles for Williams.
