Serena Williams’ husband flew her to Italy for a food craving and that’s the new standard for romance

This is the epic love story of our time

If you thought Tinder killed romance, you’re just hanging with the wrong crowd. You need to get in with the Wimbledon ‘it’ crowd.  And by ‘it’ we do mean IT. Co-founder of Reddit and Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian is every girl’s dream man.

Why, you ask? Because not only has he cracked the age-old date debate about where to go for dinner, he came through by performing above and beyond the call of duty. I mean, does your man even love you if he doesn’t fly your pizza-craving a$$ to Italy for an authentic margherita? That’s right, the first hubby of Wimbledon flew her to Italy so that she could kill those cravings. The. Bar. Has. Been. Raised.

This man is straight up staring at his wife while she drains her glass of wine and honestly, it’s the kind of support we need. They are drinking wine on a gondola in Italy. Pizza Hut delivers and we bet you and your man can’t even agree on the same toppings so just settle for Chinese food, again. Well, Alexis is having none of it. What Serena wants, Serena gets — with a glass of wine, if you please.

It’s not even Valentine’s Day. Greeting card companies didn’t brainwash him into believing that he had to play into a corporation’s idea of love. This man just decided that carbs covered in Parmesan is as close to love as it gets and then went for it. And we think that’s beautiful. While you’re sitting at home waiting for a text back, Serena Williams is living her best life. And you’ve got carb-o-nada. That’s right it’s you: 1 – Serena: Love. Not entirely sure how tennis scores work, but we’re pretty sure that means you’re on level 1 and Serena is getting all the love.

Let’s just recap this love story. Serena was craving Italian. So, bibbity bobbity boo, they hopped on a jet and went to Italy. Italy the home of burrata. Disney needs to make this man an honorary prince or Dairy God Mother.

“When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie. That’s amore” The lyrics finally make sense. Dean Martin was right all along. The secret to a healthy relationship is Italian food. We’re suddenly overcome with the urge to share a plate of pasta in an alleyway.

It’s clear that Alexis Ohanian is completely smitten by his wife.

To be fair, up until this full take-a-flight-to-Italy-because-cravings thing, we thought Alexis was the lucky one, married to the absolute icon. But when has a guy ever handled your cravings with such finesse?

Is there a Reddit thread teaching men how to do this? Could someone start one? Or maybe a Masterclass with Alexis. Can we just acknowledge this as one of the great loves of our time? None of that Napoleon building a fountain, it wasn’t even the chocolate variety. How is Josephine going to eat that? None of this Romeo and Juliet dying for their love. We want to live, live for our love of pizza. With our man cheering us on.
