The husband of tennis champ Serena Willams has celebrated his lady’s return to the courts in a way only rich people would. Williams’ hubby and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian dedicated four billboards to Williams in California where the 36-year-old will be competing in her first tournament since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. 

The grandiose proclamations of love, which referred to Williams at the “greatest mother of all time” went on display in Palm Springs on Tuesday.

“These just went up on alongside I-10 into Palm Springs,” Ohanian wrote. “@olympiaohanian & I wanted to welcome her back to tennis. Designed them myself, with some help from Jr.” he said in reference to the couple’s newborn baby.

Williams, who wed Ohanian in November, was reportedly in tears.

“Literally, I am crying,” she wrote in response to seeing the billboards. “This is so sweet. I love you.”
