  • Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian spoke with Business
    Insider editor in chief, Alyson Shontell, at the company’s 2018
    Ignition conference.
  • Ohanian had a daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. with wife
    Serena Williams last year.
  • At the end of the conversation, Ohanian said he’s looking
    forward to teaching Olympia how to code one day.
  • But he won’t hold her to that. Ohanian added he wants Olympia
    to find what she’s passionate about so she “can be the greatest
    of all time.”

Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian’s daughter with tennis
pro Serena Williams may only be a little over a year old, but
Ohanian already has big plans for his little girl. 

“She already has three laptops, like play laptops,” said Ohanian
Monday at Business Insider’s
IGNITION Conference in New
York.

“I’m not pushing anything in particular, but obviously I want her
to learn how to code,” he added in response to what he hopes
daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., will study when she’s
older. “Daddy’s going to help her. I’ve already gotten,
there
are all these kids toys that get you started earlier
and earlier. I’d love for her to learn the fundamentals of
programming.”

Williams gave birth to Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. on September
1, 2017. The power couple welcomed her to the world with a
sweet video chronicling Williams’
pregnancy
.

While Olympia may learn how to code, she could always become a
tennis star like her mom or aunt, Venus Williams.

Ohanian said at the end of the day, he just wants his daughter to
do what she’s passionate about. 

“Like a lot of parents, I just want her to find something that
she genuinely loves and then help her commit herself wholly to it
so that she can be the greatest of all time,” he added.
