I’m lucky to have an amazing partner in this journey. It hasn’t all been easy, but making that commitment to Serena and Olympia on 11.16.17 will always be one of my best life decisions. It wasn’t just an amazing weekend in New Orleans, it was the day I became a Man. Grateful for everything our little family is building together. Thanks @russroe for chopping this video for me,” Alexis Ohanian captioned the video.
